Surfing and Recovery:

A Pathway Toward Community Engagement, Personal Empowerment, and Healthy Living

Young men from across the country come to The Grounds transitional living program with the intent of building the life skills necessary to maintain a sober life. One of the more unique aspects of The Grounds program is its use of surfing throughout the recovery process. Many of The Grounds’ residents have never been on a board when they arrive, and surfing is by no means a requirement, but for most, it becomes an integral part of their recovery – as a form of therapy, and as an introduction to a supportive community and healthy lifestyle.
