Hiking out of Homelessness
Expeditions is an outdoor recreation program that has been offered to men within UGM’s Alcohol & Drug Recovery Program since 2013. It provides opportunities for men to challenge themselves physically, explore the beauty of this world, and engage meaningfully with each other—all while working towards a life-changing goal.
From simple day hikes around Vancouver to multi-day wilderness expeditions—these trips are designed to help men in their recovery journey. Most trips are led by one of UGM’s Addiction Counsellors and reinforces what is taught during UGM’s 6-month Alcohol & Drug Recovery Program.
Time in the wilderness helps each man build healthy community, develop life-skills and grow spiritually. Whether it’s climbing up mountains, travelling by canoe, or navigating the wild, men are empowered and encouraged as they work towards sustainable recovery at UGM.
Expeditions is just one way that life-changing recovery happens at UGM. If you’d like to learn more about what we do, or get involved, please fill out the form below.
