Recreational Activities and Sober Living
The importance of sober forms of recreation is important to on going recovery. Most addicts or alcoholics have no long term memory of what it means to have a good time without using drugs or drinking. Their behavior has been completely conditioned by seeking drugs and alcohol and avoiding withdrawal symptoms.
Recovery from substance abuse is dependent upon change and transformation. At Boca House, men learn that they can heal their minds, bodies and spirits. They can capture good times in sharing moments of laughter, working out with others, sharing a day at the beach, boating, joining a softball team or enjoying a swim in the pool. The weather in South Florida provides an ideal environment for healing one’s body.
