We create life-changing experiences for struggling young adults. Our outdoor
therapy program helps young people to make better choices and live healthier,
more productive lives. Our founders recognized a need for an unconventional
way to get our young men to open up.
Located in Northern Arizona, Blueprints For Recovery goes beyond traditional
wilderness therapy programs, cultivating change by teaching sustainable
life skills in a clinically innovative and nurturing environment.
Getting out into nature helps our clients learn things like:
- Problem Solving
- Self Care
- Physical Exercise
Our goal is to teach our young men that it's important to enjoy your new
life as a sober young adult while learning very important life skills.
We find it's very easy for our clients to connect and grow while their
peer support group and nature surround them.
At Blueprints for Recovery we absolutely insist upon enjoying life. We
go camping, fishing, snowboarding, kayaking, and rock climbing. Beyond
learning new ways to appreciate life, these adventure activities stimulate
teamwork and trust (essential ingredients in long-term recovery). You
can read about some of our previous adventure programs below.
Blueprints For Recovery traveled to Flagstaff, Arizona to hike Mt. Humphrey’s.
It was a physically challenging hike and the reward was well worth it.
The view from the mountain summit was inspiring and breathtaking. For
many participants, this trip was a breakthrough in their treatment as
they had a hands-on experience with the life they can enjoy through sobriety.
California Surf & Camping Trip
The young adult drug rehab program spent a few days in California camping
and surfing. We believe it is important for young adults to learn how
to have fun in sobriety. It is difficult getting sober at as a young adult.
A common challenge people face when getting sober is learning to have
fun and creating an enjoyable life without drugs or alcohol. One of our
missions is to teach our residents that having fun is possible.
