The social epicenter of our community, the Rec Center provides residents with the psychosocial stimulation so vitally necessary as a protection against drug cravings and isolation. An arcade game room, a quiet room for chess and board games, an expansive area for air hockey, ping pong, pool, and mega screen television, as well as comfortable sofas, vibrant colors, and clean light stave off the boredom and sense of dullness that can challenge men in early recovery. Loneliness, isolation, and separation are more easily alleviated when engagement with others is activity-focused. The bonds of friendship and brotherhood develop and strength when just “hanging out” is centered around healthy activity.
