What is important for a well-balanced recovery is to stay fit, get out there, have fun and experience life to your maximum potential!

Compass Treatment Centre bases its activities in addiction recovery on our therapeutic program. We keep our residents busy with various activities that allows them to feel uniquely trusted and an active part of their recovery process. We set aside most mornings for therapeutic input, leaving the afternoons for activities.

We implement self-directed time as an integral part of our re-integration program. This allows residents to start developing their own sense of personal accountability which has been created to teach residents to learn to use their time constructively.

Types of activities are outdoor and indoor. These include:

Outdoor activities can include:

  • Wilderness day excursions (hiking, beach walks and exploring local forests)
  • Personal shopping (supervised)
  • Seaside therapy sessions
  • Kayaking, surfing, kite surfing, stand-up paddling, paragliding, team building, golf, quad biking, horse riding. (All optional and some for own expense).

Indoor activities such as:

  • Being taught responsible housekeeping; including meal preparation, etc.
  • Hygiene and cleanliness (an important tool in recovery & residents new life style/skills).
