Recovery Activities

At 10 Acre Ranch, we take a holistic approach to addiction recovery. Successful rehabilitation requires attention to physical, emotional, and psychological needs. If any of these is neglected, there is a greater chance of relapse. Over time, we have developed a proven set of recovery activities that encourage sobriety success. Recovery activities are just as essential as counseling, healthy food, and adequate sleep, and 10 Acre Ranch clients experience a number of benefits when they participate in our activity program:

  • Increased creativity. Creative outlets allow addicts to process emotions, reflect on experiences, and develop new skills.
  • Connection with nature. Eco-therapy is an important part of rehabilitation. Walks, hikes, and outdoor experiences decrease depression, improve well-being, and develop appreciation for the natural environment.
  • Natural rush. Foregoing drugs and alcohol for exercise is a great way to get a “natural high” as the body releases endorphins and adrenaline.
  • Shared experiences. Our social treatment model provides group therapy opportunities for growth and education. In addition, these group gatherings offer a chance to connect with people who have a similar experience and worldview.
  • Gratitude. An attitude of gratefulness makes recovery easier and relapse less likely. Studies show that people who express gratitude are more content and less likely to suffer from anxiety and depression.

Men’s Rehab Recovery Activity Options

Recovery activities remind addicts that there is life beyond addiction, giving them something to be thankful for. One common characteristic of men who are struggling with an addiction is the tendency toward isolation. 10 Acre Ranch recovery activities are designed to draw residents out of isolation and into a supportive group environment. 10 Acre Ranch recovery activities are also designed to appeal to a range of male personality types, and they teach participants to become empowered, self-sufficient, and self-aware. Recovery activities include:

  • Spiritual nature walks
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Self-esteem strategies
  • 12-step meetings
  • 12-step Big Book study
  • Personal inventories
  • Gratitude lists
  • AA/NA/CA conventions
  • Disease education
  • Recovery workshops
