Recovery is no vacation. It's some of the hardest work a person can do, which is why comfort and community support play a vital role. No one should feel punished for doing the work required to improve their lives and their relationships. In addition to taking care of material needs, we treat first responders with dignity, acknowledge their sacrifices, and ensure the highest standard of care so they can focus their energy on getting well.
Hiking, fishing, and taking the time to read a book may seem trivial, but they are a critical part of our treatment plan. Rediscovering how to enjoy life without substances can mean the difference between recovery and relapse. These activities also provide residents with the opportunity to discuss their shared experiences with fellow first responders, which helps to collectively strengthen the support system.
