Real Recovery Ski Trip

At Real Recovery, we are so thankful to be located in Asheville, North Carolina because we are able to maintain a fun and active lifestyle all year. Our annual ski trips are always one of the highlights of the year and the weather this year has given us some great conditions at some of our favorite local ski spots, such as at Cataloochee Ski Area. Last week, we took our guys up there for a day of hitting the slopes and hanging out together and as always, we had a blast. Cataloochee is less than an hour drive from the Real Recovery property, so it makes for a perfect day trip and getaway for our clients.

The trips that we take regularly are a very important part of our program. We make every effort to do most everything together as a family and these special times never fail to create memories that last forever. When we opened the first Real Recovery recovery residence seven years ago, we never wanted to just have a standard recovery residence that rented beds and hoped to keep young men sober through strict rules and regulations. We have learned through our own experiences that the best way to maintain sobriety is to learn to love and enjoy life. That is why these trips are so important to us. A life without drugs and alcohol can be so much more fun and fulfilling when we learn how to enjoy our days in healthy and life giving ways.

We have worked very hard to develop a lifestyle program at Real, where a highly structured program is implemented in a casual and appealing way, making sobriety much more attainable for the young men that we serve. It has been a joy and privilege for our staff to watch our clients grow on their journeys of sobriety and to be able to experience these special times with them, as many of our young men have never taken the time to participate in activities like these with their peers that are on the same path. A sober life can be and should be the best life a young man can possible have, and that’s what makes Real Recovery so special: we know how to teach young men how to love life!

If you have any questions about our program or would like more information about Real Recovery, our staff is always available to answer any questions and we would love the opportunity to speak with you about our unique aftercare program.
