Recreational Counseling in Addiction Recovery

Recreational Counseling at Long Island Center for Recovery (LICR) plays an important role in addiction treatment. It encourages clients to participate in the treatment’s recreational therapeutic activities and helps them to develop their own recreational pattern. Participating in recreational activities at Long Island Center for Recovery may involve a combination of both physical fitness and leisure activities. Together these recreational therapeutic activities can have a profound impact on cognitive abilities, transforming not only the body but also the mind. While physical exercise can help rebuild brain cells, improve mood, boost energy, promote sleep and relieve tension, leisure activities are also known to help individuals develop social skills, increase self-esteem and self-confidence.
