Recreation Therapy

Acqua Recovery’s recreation therapy helps people develop healthy life skills like emotion management and empathy. The rehab center achieves this by implementingrecreational activities such as sports, yoga, hiking, and other light physical tasks.

These activities also provide a venue for residents to interact with other people in complete sobriety, which, in turn, helps in the social re-integration process.
