A group of our alumni ventured to the Carrabassett Region of the to volunteer with New England Maine Huts & Trails. They spent the weekend in the woods together performing service work, blazing new trails and cleaning up existing ones. Activities like these remind our esteemed alumnus what it means to give back – and most importantly to have fun in sobriety.
Our therapists and staff walk alongside our guys performing real-life therapy with every strike-out, homerun, dropped ball or touchdown. One of the benefits of an experiential approach is the opportunity for the clinician to observe a client in situations where the the focus is not on the therapy itself which allows for authentic responses and emotions to surface and be processed.
These annual journeys offer an incredible opportunity for our residents to experience fun and exploration in early recovery in ways they never thought possible. There is no journey greater, and no experience more eye opening than traveling internationally.
Every life lesson can be taught on the field, diamond, court or ice. Our therapists and staff play alongside our guys and coach our teams performing real-life therapy with every strike-out, homerun, dropped ball or touchdown.
The Foundation House Hockey League has quickly become a staple of our program. Every Monday night residents, alumni and staff gather at our restaurant for a pre-game dinner together before hitting the ice. Some of our guys are semi-pro players, others have never worn a pair of skates. Whether you have played your whole life, or never before; have years of sobriety or are still counting days – for 90 minutes every Monday night we play on the same ice.
