Fun in Sobriety
Yes, there’s fun ahead in sobriety. True fun.
Those in the recovery community know that in recovery, “We are not a glum lot.”
Though a life of sobriety may seem lackluster when you are in active addiction, people in recovery understand that happiness and freedom through sobriety can become a reality. We believe that a sense of camaraderie and joy can return during treatment and continue long after it. It is our goal to model this for you while you are at Origins. As a team, we do this through a wide range of services both during and after your care.
Look at your life in active addiction and ask these questions: Is what I’m presently experiencing actually fun, or am I chasing a distant memory of having fun? Is trying to control or quit drinking true fun? Is hiring a lawyer and going to court for a drunk driving offense any fun? Is having someone ask if you remember what you did at the party the night before, fun? Is the desperate feeling inside a definition of fun?
For most, drinking ceased to be fun long before we ceased drinking.
Immersion in the Fellowship of the Spirit
Your recovery immersion experience provides not only a framework for sobriety but an entrance to the recovery community within dynamic and lively support groups or fellowships. Our team of hand-selected Recovery Advocates, many of whom are in recovery themselves, serve as prime examples of the freedom possible through sobriety. Every day, our teams orient you to timeless recovery principles while providing support and encouragement in a fun and healthy way. Patients at Origins are shown (rather than merely taught) how to have fun in sobriety and live a life that is truly worth living. For more information on our programs, simply click here.
Our Alumni Community members are constantly enjoying the benefits of fellowship through events, small gatherings, recovery meetings, and aftercare services. We have hundreds of alumni who are actively engaged in recovery. Many are willing to show others how to have a good time being a part of it. They are available for support, friendship, or both!

“Your imagination will be fired. Life will mean something at last. The most satisfactory years of your existence lie ahead. Thus we find the fellowship, and so will you.”
