Recreational Therapy addresses the challenges individuals have by using activities they already love or introducing them to and exploring new, therapeutic leisure pursuits. This gives the individual an opportunity to explore and help them become more independent and face their unique challenges.  Therapy directly impacts the person’s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Recreational Therapists utilize a systematic, evidence-based treatment approach to meet personal goals and identified needs utilizing leisure activities - either as a stand-alone therapy service or as part of a support team.
