Inspirations teen drug rehab celebrates Valentines Day
At Inspirations teen drug rehab spending the holiday in treatment isn’t the dull and mundane experience it may be at other treatment centers. Being away from friends and family is one of the hardest parts of treatment, especially when a holiday comes around. However, Inspirations helps our teens to feel at home during these holidays through meaningful activities or sober outings.
Inspirations Pass the Love Activity
This Valentines Day Inspirations teen rehab decided to have our teens spread love in a healthy manner. For our Pass the Love activity each teen and staff member is encouraged to write a Valentine’s note to either a client or staff member expressing one thing they are grateful about from that person.
The Pass the Love activity encourages our clients to be open about their emotions as well as how to effectively communicate them with others. This encouragement builds comradery among clients and ensures they build a healthy support system.
Heart Shaped Pancakes
Our nutrition course celebrated the day of love by creating heart shaped pancakes. Our teens created heart shaped pancakes and decorated them to their heart’s content. This is among one of Inspirations many seasonal cooking recipes created by our teens. Our teens have made summer fruit smoothies, easter rice krispie treats and baked apples for fall.
