Recreational Therapy

Recreational therapy structures groups based on the six dimensions of wellness: emotional, intellectual, physical, spiritual, social and vocational. Clients will be encouraged to attend groups that will be designed to restore, remediate and rehabilitate a person’s level of functioning and independence in life activities. The Recreational Therapy program will promote health and wellness as well as reduce or eliminate activity limitations. Clients will be encouraged to utilize the gym, engage in team activities, and participate in group discussions about healthy living. Through the use of leisure education, recreation therapy will promote stress management, healthy coping skills, healthy social skills, and increase self- esteem. Yoga is also offered to provide mindfulness, relaxation and meditation.
