New Vitae Wellness and Recovery’s Philadelphia sites were happy to host their 2019 Spring Fling event on Sunday, June 9th.  It was a true success!  Staff members enjoyed interactions with residents, including a variety of games and fun conversations.  Everyone enjoyed sharing barbeque and sides, and were frequently seen laughing together while enjoying the music and sunshine.  Three former residents returned to share stories of success with the current residents and enjoy the festivities. Adding to the fun atmosphere, New Vitae was proud to welcome several family members to participate in the celebration.

In the midst of the fun, staff took the opportunity to review the message of recovery and the value of Recovery-Oriented Cognitive Therapy with families and residents.  Using this framework, several former residents were able to utilize concrete steps to improve their physical and emotional health and “graduate” to other opportunities.  Family members were able to learn more about the process and the impressive dedication to recovery shared by their loved ones and supported by staff members.

Overall, the day was a meaningful celebration as well as a lot of fun!  Special thanks to all of the residents, family members, and staff who made it a wonderful day.  We look forward to hosting another event soon!
