Back Cove Residential Program: Therapeutic Recreational Activities

therapeuticactivities

In addition to wellness services, equine therapy is offered once per week, as weather permits, at one of Maine’s premier equine therapy facilities. Working with horses allows clients to build trust and work through their fears. Through their interactions with the horses, clients gain greater insight into their own relational styles. Participants are able to work on reading non-verbal cues and develop greater assertiveness, problem solving, leadership and teamwork skills.

In the Back Cove Residential Program, equine therapy provides women with a different avenue to help understand their own behaviors and relationships.

Maine is known as Vacationland for its beautiful scenery and year round activities. Various seasonal activities are offered, helping clients to incorporate healthy activities into their recovery journey. Crossroads’ facility is within walking distance to the popular Back Cove Trail, a 4.2-mile loop around beautiful Back Cove with views of Portland’s skyline, ideal for walking or running.

Take the first step to remember who you wanted to be.
