EXTENDED CARE FOR YOUNG ADULTS IN THE HEART OF AUSTIN
Fun in Recovery
Making Recovery Fun
One of the most important aspects for young adults entering recovery is making the recovery lifestyle attractive. Young men in particular have a dreadful outlook on life after finding out that they must abstain from all mind-altering chemicals. We try to hook them with a vision of hope for an enjoyable and fulfilling lifestyle.
Austin, Texas: A Vibrant Community
There are few places in the world with a more vibrant community of young people in recovery. From the Center for Students in Recovery at UT to the countless number of young-person specific 12-step meetings, our residents have the opportunity to get plugged in to people their age that are staying sober and enjoying life.
We believe that learning how to have healthy, sober fun is an important part of treatment for young adults. We take our residents on monthly outings to help facilitate these experiences. Whether we are going to the movies, bowling, or simply spending the day at the park, the residents at Spearhead Lodge get to participate in regular activities to help them enjoy life in sobriety.
