Active Healing: The Power of Experiences


At The Recovery Academy, experiences play a large role and involves active participation in different activities to help individuals recover from substance use, mental health, and co-occurring disorders. The approach focuses on the present moment, allowing individuals to be fully immersed in the experience while processing their emotions and thoughts. At The Recovery Academy in Minnesota, we utilize activities such as golfing, boating, fishing, and gym workouts to help individuals overcome addiction and mental health challenges.

Many people who are diagnosed with substance use, mental health and co-occurring disorders often find themselves feeling isolated, disconnected, and struggling to connect with others. These staffed experiences provide an opportunity for individuals to engage in activities that they may not typically be exposed to or have not been exposed to for an extended period of time to rebuild confidence, increase self-esteem, and establish new coping skills. By participating in golfing, boating, fishing, and working out in the gym, individuals can experience a sense of achievement and accomplishment, which helps improve mood and overall well-being.

Golfing is one of the activities offered at The Recovery Academy, and it is a great way for individuals to learn new skills, develop patience, and focus on the present moment. The game of golf is often associated with mindfulness and mental discipline, making it a natural fit for individuals in recovery. Boating and fishing are also popular activities at The Recovery Academy, providing an opportunity for individuals to connect with nature, reduce stress, and experience a sense of tranquility. And finally, the gym workouts offered at the academy help individuals to improve their physical health, which can have a positive impact on mental health.

But it’s not just about the activities themselves. The conversations that take place during these activities are just as important. Participants have the opportunity to connect with one another and share their experiences, challenges, and successes. This helps to build a sense of community and support, which can be vital in the recovery process. The Recovery Academy has trained staff who facilitate these conversations and help individuals process their thoughts and emotions.

The Recovery Academy’s experiences offer a unique approach to supportive recovery and transitional care. By engaging in active, outdoor activities and having meaningful conversations, individuals can build new skills, connect with others, and work towards successful recovery.
