One of the unique aspects to the Cirque Lodge alcohol and drug rehab facility is the use of experiential activities as an element of addiction recovery. As a part of treatment, Cirque Lodge residents have opportunities to get out into nature and find means to spiritual enlightenment and healing for their addictions. They go on hikes, bikes, river rafting and even snow shoeing in the mountains. These enjoyable activities are coupled with lessons of recovery and self-care. In this video, Dave Beck, the experiential director at Cirque Lodge shares a moment on the mountain.

Cirque Lodge Helicopter

Cirque Lodge has a private helicopter provided specifically for the resident experience in the mountains. Residents are taken on private mountain flights to experience nature from the sky. During the flight, the helicopter lands in a remote location where residents can do some mountain hiking and even have a private moment of meditation and reflection. The video is filmed from this remote mountain spot.

The helicopter flight is provided for residents in drug rehab who are working on the third step of recovery, turning their will over to a power greater than themselves. In this mountain place, far from any other human beings, you find a place where such connections may be forged.

Body, Mind and Spirit

The Cirque Lodge experience provides treatment and recovery for the body, mind and for the spirit. We feel that to truly recover from addiction, one must come to terms with themselves on all three of these levels. The experiential program greatly assists in this. It supplies a physical exercise to help with recovery for the body. The lessons and messages shared in these activities teach tools for recovery and methods of self-care. Spiritual experiences can be found out on the mountain. People have always have turned to nature as a resource for healing in their lives.
