Recreation TherapyGetting back into the activities you enjoy can add to the quality of your life. Recreation therapy, also called therapeutic recreation, is an intervention to support you in maintaining or acquiring healthy leisure outlets. A certified therapeutic recreation specialist will assist you in identifying leisure outlets and pursuits, whether they are physical pursuits, passive activities or ways to enhance your sense of being. The therapist will work with you individually to explore activities and identify a plan that fits your current level of energy and interests. Recreation therapy can help with rehabilitation, improving function, increasing independence and limiting the impact of illness or disability.
