Recreation Therapy

Better Physical And Mental Health

Why Recreation Therapy Is Important

The goal of Recreation Therapy at Acqua Recovery is to help residents learn and practice healthy interpersonal skills. This is done through experiential outings along the Wasatch Back and in the Salt Lake Valley. We reintegrate into the community through team activities like sober volleyball and softball leagues and engage in daily physical activity at a full gym and recreation center.

Recreation Therapy teaches people how to manage emotions, be mindful, and practice better life skills. We let residents experience new ways to enjoy sobriety and re- integrate back into a community. There is a huge connection between physical health and mental health. When either of these are lacking, it can impair mood, increase depression and anxiety, and put someone at risk for relapse.

When you feel good physically, you have more energy to make smarter decisions and are better equipped to address issues that come along with addiction. Being active and involved in team activities during and after treatment provides an opportunity to connect with a sober environment and community that supports a healthy lifestyle, which in turn, increases your quality of life and well-being.

    As soon as I stepped through the doors of acqua I was welcomed into a family - I was treated with dignity and respect. It was the first time in a while I felt like I belonged, which helped me take an honest look at myself. I learned how to love myself again and for that, I am forever grateful.

    The therapists at acqua took the time to facilitate sessions with me and my husband. I learned how to support him and take care of myself at the same time. When my husband first began treatment, I couldn’t have imagined reconnecting with the man I fell in love with when we first met.

    I couldn’t have imagined the accommodations being so comfortable. At acqua, it was like staying at a high end resort…best sleep I’ve had in years. The fireplace and garden tub in my room were nice touches.

    I would describe Acqua recovery to a friend as a really great treatment center in an absolutely beautiful setting. The staff is caring, the program seems to be truly set up for our benefit. Overall the rules that are in place seem to be there for recovery and what we are taught is varied and extensive.
