For most of us, summer is the perfect time for recreation, outdoor activities, socializing and relaxing. For some of us, Summer is the busy time of the year and finding time for recovery is the challenge.

Now that you’re sober and summer is upon us, your idea of fun will no doubt look and feel a lot different than it did in the past…and that’s a good thing!

For those in recovery – especially early recovery – summertime can also present a unique set of challenges.

In the past, some of your summertime activities may have been synonymous with destructive behaviors. However, changing your lifestyle for the better doesn’t necessarily mean you have to redefine your personal definition of “fun.”

So, if you’re looking for some new summer activities that will allow you to let loose, laugh and have fun without the fear of triggering a relapse, you’re in luck. We have suggestions!
