A spiritual practice can be an integral element to a healthy, well-rounded recovery. Spiritual connection can open us up to being vulnerable, deepen our connection with others, help us stay grounded, and give us a higher purpose.
We offer our clients a variety of non-denomination experiences to allow them to explore the concept of spirituality including guided meditations, yoga classes, mindfulness hikes, a Lakota sweat lodge ritual, and 12-step meetings.
