What is Recreational Therapy?

Therapeutic Recreation (TR) is an highly effective, evidence-based approach to addiction treatment that utilizes enjoyable activities to promote mental health, boost mood, and reconfigure the brain’s reward centers to reduce cravings.

How does Recreational Therapy help with addiction?

Recreational therapy is an excellent way to promote the production of endorphins, serotonin, and other happy hormones within the brain—especially when used in conjunction with other types of therapy. This can help reduce pain and discomfort—and even help create new neurological pathways to associate good feelings with healthier activities. Akron provides practical, structured opportunities to solve problems, make decisions, set goals, and process emotions.
