Why Sober Living Activities?
Surfside Structured Sober Living in New Jersey is the only program offering recovering addicts and alcoholics daily sober living activities specifically for men ages 18-34. We believe that one of the major precursors for relapse is boredom and an overall inability to deal with life’s challenges. Providing different experiences not only allows our residents to experience new things but builds self esteem.
Our comprehensive program is designed to expose residents to multiple activities that will help them experience the joys of life again. Monday though Friday, the house will participate in a predetermined group activity (activities vary based on the weather); about 3 days a week we even offer multiple choices for the guys.
Some of the regular weekly sober living activities include: Biking, longboarding, surfing, SUP, Muay Thai, fishing and going to the gym, movies, bowling, airsoft or paintball. Saturday’s the guys can head to Crossfit where they can test their fitness against our staff! Other activities will occur on a monthly or bi-monthly basis, such as camping, day-long hikes, climbing, the trampoline park, hatchet throwing and trips to the mountains.
All residents that graduate our individualized program will work through the 12-steps and be fully integrated into the recovery community, learn to budget, grocery shop, cook and leave with a completed resume, job search skills and should be gainfully employed.
Sober Living in NJ gives men the opportunity to experience the joy of living. All men at Surfside Structured Sober Living will have the opportunity to take surf lessons (seasonal), participate in yoga and learn how to cook and budget at no additional cost. During the colder months, our group will continues to participate in multiple activities at our local gym but we also head into the outdoors.
Surfside is the only sober living in NJ that owns our own 11.5 acre piece of land about 30min west of our house. This wooded lot in the pine barrens offers our residents year round camping, a paintball/airsoft field, and the ability to relax in nature.
Our sober living activities are included in the resident’s program fee. We have no additional hidden fees. Our home is equipped with state of the art camping equipment, skateboards and surfboards, bikes, fishing equipment, paintball equipment and other accessories needed. If a resident owns equipment and would prefer to use his own, we encourage them to bring their gear.
