The Emotional Intelligence program at Sober College, young adult drug rehab involves a number of experiential therapy activities designed to help young adults in recovery gain self-esteem and get in touch with their emotions.
One experiential therapy that clients look forward to is surfing. Surfing can be very challenging but it can also fun and incredibly rewarding. Whether or not the young adults at Sober College get up their first time, or not at all, when they participate in this challenging activity they are encouraged to push through the frustration and fear and come out on the other side and experience true accomplishment.
