Engaging Recovery...

Active and experiential learning are fundamental to life at Green Hill Recovery. We balance our clinical programming with a range of experiential activities meant to create a dynamic recovery environment.  Before being exposed to sobriety, many emerging adults believe a life in recovery is one of boredom and solitude. At Green Hill Recovery, we demonstrate the opposite. We challenge residents to engage in their recovery by redeveloping passions and discovering new ones.

Throughout the week, residents participate in a wide variety of activities used to teach the skills needed to maintain a productive life in long-term recovery. We spend as little time as possible in our office, preferring to teach self-advocacy at the rock gym, collaboration on the basketball court and self-care on overnight expeditions. All of our experiential activities contain a clinical or 12-step theme and involve our staff working and playing alongside our residents.

Our residents are highly involved in designing the experiential aspect of our program and their interests and passions often guide many of the activities we do. Every Saturday, residents go on outings planned by the group. Residents are also involved in planning our overnight expeditions held every six weeks, which include activities such as surfing on the coast and camping on the beach or rafting and mountain climbing in the Appalachian Mountains. In addition to our recreational-based programming, our residents regularly engage in volunteer and community oriented projects.
