The UP Foundation believes that recovery should be exciting. At The UP Foundation, we promote a lively and fun environment that is welcoming, nonjudgmental, down to earth, personable and fun. Many young people struggle to abstain from drugs and alcohol because they believed that a life without substance use would be boring. To combat this issue, we offer a wide variety of fun, therapeutic recreational activities that allow our participants to experience having fun without being under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Our recreational activities include, but are not limited to, such things as:

  • Escape Rooms

  • Bowling

  • Recovery Conventions

  • Dinner & Movie Nights

  • Wilderness Walks

  • Celebrity Speaker Events

  • Game Nights

  • Pool Parties

Involvement in these activities creates a sense of belonging and community among our participants.  By experiencing fun, sober activities with their peers, our participants learn that life without drugs and alcohol can be both productive and fun.
