We believe that fun, relaxation and social connection are just as important as the work residents do at Spruce. In addition to celebrating birthdays and holidays in ways that reflect the residents’ preferences, we plan many outings, activities and special events throughout the year. These activities give everyone an opportunity to unwind and connect with each other outside of structured treatment programming, and possibly develop new interests.

Examples include:

Sunset fishing in Groton State Forest on our annual camping trip.
