“These adventures had a huge impact”

The work I was doing around spirituality really broadened as a result of these trips and being able to get outside myself amid the redwoods or on the bay kayaking. These adventures and I think they had a huge impact on the overall process.

Experiential Activities

The recovery work we do on campus is complemented by twice-weekly outings to participate in some of the Bay Area’s most interesting and enjoyable activities. Our outings are designed to encourage you to learn new activities, relearn favorite activities without the presence of substance use, practice recovery skills in real-life situations, and work through challenges within a safe and supportive group. Plus, we have a lot of fun! Many of our residents discover new passions and develop lifelong hobbies through our experiential activity program.

We are always adding new activities to our schedule. Here are some of our recent outings:

  • Sailing on the San Francisco Bay
