Addiction can cause numerous challenges in your life, especially when it comes to your physical health. For example, due to feeling hungover, depressed, or isolated from your usual friend group, you may stop getting the necessary exercise needed to maintain your overall health and well-being


For these reasons, many facilities across the US offer recreational therapy to get clients back on their feet. One such facility is Alta Loma, and by learning about what recreational therapy at our facility provides, you may be motivated to join us and enhance your recovery.


The Importance of Recreational Therapy


Addiction can cause many people to neglect their physical health, impacting their mental and emotional health as well. However, it can also keep people from exploring their passions, leaving them confused in sobriety when prompted to find a hobby. At Alta Loma, we provide our patients with various opportunities to discover fun, sober activities, their passions, and to connect with others. Over time, we hope recreational therapy will provide our patients the chance to grow and take charge of their recovery with skills they can use outside of treatment.

Located in beautiful Georgetown, TX, Alta Loma offers numerous activities for patients to take part in. Every week, there are two structured outings to ensure our patients get moving.
