Natural Highs on Tour
The Natural Highs programme consists of a range of motivational and team building challenge activities. Each challenge promotes the development of personal qualities such as co-operation, clear thinking, careful observation, resourcefulness, persistence and adaptability, all of which are of value to service users in recovery.
Natural Highs originated in Compass Selby where the programme continues to grow. On Sunday, staff and service users from Selby completed a nine-mile hike on Pen-Y-Gent, the first of the famous Yorkshire Three Peaks. The group is supporting Peter Moore who is taking part in the Three Peaks Challenge to raise money for the Hep C Trust finishing on World Hepatitis Day. You can follow Peter’s blog here.
An evaluation of Natural Highs in 2011 confirmed that it gives people the motivation, courage and confidence to achieve stable and drug free lives. As a result, the programme is now being integrated across the Compass network.
