Learning how to apply therapeutic principles into everyday life situations is a pivotal skill that clients can only learn through active application. The enrichment program at Tiger Mountain Recovery assists clients as they navigate a number of different tasks and activities on a daily basis.
The ability to deal with life on life’s terms is a pivotal portion of living a life in recovery. All too often, there are a variety of simple life skills that we overlook or take for granted. The life skills progam at Tiger Mountain Recovery, covers life skills based on the needs of current residential clients. From fine-tuning simplistic skills of daily living to developing more complex skills that increase client productivity and employability, we are dedicated to offering content that can expand client’s horizons.
The equine program at Tiger Mountain recovery is centered around the therapeutic process of individual work with the horses on a daily basis, during the week, as a means of rebuilding responsibility and growing as a person. The combination of regular horse-related duties and the soothing nature of the animals themselves assist individuals in developing their mind and spirit after they have both been damaged by the cycle of addiction.
Clients are encouraged to broaden their rehabilitation experience by participating in our gardening program in conjunction with equine therapy for increasingly satisfying results. Barn & Garden duties provide a vast array of activities that change throughout the seasons and provide clients with active outlets for physical, mental, and emotional stimulation.
Spiritual development is a key component of any recovery program and here at Tiger Mountain Recovery, clients will enjoy a variety of workshops, discussions, and projects that are focused on the spiritual growth of women.
The Arts & Crafts program facilitates the client’s ability to utilize creative expression as an effective outlet for self-expression (including a multitude of feelings such as stress, anger, guilt, desires, etc.) and introduces them to the stress-reduction benefits of relaxation through guided therapeutic recreation that requires focus, problem-solving abilities, patience and commitment in seeing a project through to completion.
Daily journaling time is allocated to clients as a time for reflection and introspection. Clarity and a strong sense of self and self-awareness are sparse during the initial phases of recovery and need particular attention. This activity provides a routine for clients that highlight the importance of taking the time to notice and notate what they are thinking, how they are feeling, and where they anticipate going from this particular point in time. Clients gain a sense of self-knowledge and personally driven direction from this activity, which is a mandatory and vital component of recovery.
