Getting Your Recovering Teen Involved In The Holidays
Plan New Holiday TraditionsRecovery is about reinvention and celebration. If old holiday traditions don't seem to be winning over your teen, ask them to help create some new ones. Holiday movie marathon? Inventing holiday desserts? Taking a holiday trip? Volunteering at the local soup kitchen? Donating warm clothing to homeless shelters? Give your teen an opportunity to express themselves and have the whole family support their initiative this year, and every year after.
Hold A Family Holiday Cook-offHolidays and cooking go hand in hand. We don't always hand off the cooking to our children. Ask your recovering teen what cooking skills they learned in treatment and what kind of meal they might want to prepare for the family or with the family. Teens might have favorite recipes of their childhood they want to learn to cook with you or they might have ideas they want to create brand new.
Treatment during the holidays is a challenge because families want to be together. Addiction tears families apart. Now is the best time to set you and your family on course for total recovery. Stonewater Adolescent Recovery Center offers long term residential treatment programs for adolescent and teenage boys. Building positive foundations through life cleansing therapies, boys graduate from our program ready to take on life.
