IOP March Moab Expedition

On March 26-28, 2014 nine Jaywalker MIOP clients, 1-Alumni and 1-staff traveled to Moab, UT for 3-days of fellowship, golf, hiking, bowling, and skydiving. This was an opportunity to get away from the routine of work and treatment in the Roaring Fork Valley and to play together in one of the most beautiful places in the western United States. Wednesday afternoon was shopping, fellowship and a wonderful steak dinner prepared mostly by Richard S. Who knew he could cook and grill with such aplomb. After dinner it was off to the local bowling alley for some serious competition. Thursday dawned windy and cool and everyone was up and planning the day. Tee times were made for six of us and five of us headed off to the Canyonlands National Park for some hiking. We all came back together at the Condos in late afternoon and headed into town for a…

Clean & Vibrant People

Last week myself and the Jaywalker Solutions men headed to beautiful Moab, Utah. I got out of the trip the pure beauty of the surroundings and being able to take them in being sober.  I enjoyed the group and the adventures we went on.  The places we saw brought me back to the times when I was on an RV trip with my grand-parents and just really noticing God’s beauty.  As I see Him working in my life daily I have greater appreciation for the beauty that surrounds me.  I’m very thrilled to have had this opportunity with other clean and vibrant people.  It really speaks to my inner being knowing that I can enjoy these trips and be able to interact with others on this journey to a bright future.

Mindfulness in Action

Last weekend, myself as well as the guys here at Jaywalker U took a trip to Moab, UT for one of our last days of transformational work with Johann Aberger. The guys of the house left on Friday, however my brother’s wedding was in Denver on Friday so I had to show up late. I had made a commitment to be in Moab, so right after the wedding on Friday, I left for Moab. I showed up in Moab and grabbed some breakfast with the guys and headed out to the river for a slow rafting trip down the Colorado. Afterwards we headed to do some hiking, canyoneering, and rappelling. All in all, this day seems like it was pretty busy. However this was a chance for us to relax, take a break from our brains going at the speed of light, and also do some things that weren’t exactly…

Serious Joy

Last week Lenny Beaulieu, Mike Moreland, and the Jaywalker Outpatient men headed to Moab for a few days of some serious joy. While in Moab the men played some golf, hiked some trails, and participated in one of the biggest trust falls out there; jumping out of a plane! This was a great way for the guys to experience some serious joy while learning how to have fun on a sober adventure. Donnie Hagenbart Program Coordinator Jaywalker U

New Meaning…

Life will take on new meaning. To watch people recover, to see them help others, to watch loneliness vanish, to see a fellowship grow up about you, to have a host of friends–this is an experience you must not miss. We know you will not want to miss it. –Alcoholics Anonymous Pg. 89 As a new alum emerged from the Jaywalker continuum two veterans picked him up and whisked him away to Moab for a weekend of mountain biking. A clients coin out ceremony signifies the beginning of a new phase of his recovery, the alumni experience. Whether it be mountain biking, climbing, hiking, fly fishing, softball, or skiing, seasoned alums grab each new graduate and carry him into the fellowship. John Schneier Admissions Manager

Productive Members of Society

Last week the men of Jaywalker’s Modified Integrated Outpatient Program headed west to magnificent Moab, Utah. While in Moab the men had some sober fun jumping out of airplanes, hiking up trails, and jumping off cliffs on their mountain bikes. Not only was this trip a great way for the men to experience some serious sober fun but was also an opportunity for them to experience a new town. Lenny Beaulieu, MIOP counselor, said, “This was one of our best trips and I was very impressed with the way the guys carried themselves while representing Jaywalker.” Jaywalker men are showing us more and more how they are becoming mature productive members of society.

Leap of Faith

” If you don’t step out of your comfort zone and face your fears,the number of situations that make you uncomfortable will keep growing” ~ Theo Pistorius The men of the Jaywalker Intensive Outpatient Treatment program had the opportunity to JUMP out of their comfort zones this past week in Moab, Utah. Skydiving has become one of the signature elements of director Lenny Beaulieu’s innovative MIOP program. Jaywalker expeditions provide our clients a safe and supportive environment to experience new adventures in Recovery. With the support of of our fellow Jaywalkers and mentors we acquire the willingness, confidence, and courage to overcome our fears and leap out of comfort zones in healthy and often, exhilarating ways. The expedition also included extreme mountain biking, golf, hiking in the Arches national park, and lots of good food and fellowship. Mark Kloster Alumni Coordinator

Expedition to Moab

A few weeks ago clients and staff from Jaywalkers’ Landing program ventured to Moab to tackle the hikes and bikes the high desert has to offer. Mornings consisted of family breakfast followed by group led by program supervisor Brendon Kerton. The men spent a couple hours studying the 12 steps, focusing on Step One, outlining the powerless and unmanageability in their lives. The afternoons were spent cruising around Moab’s various mountain bike trails; the guys pedaled hard and made it to the top of some amazing vistas. In the evenings the guys sat around the fire making dinner, laughing, and playing cards. The expedition was a success as the men came together in the pursuit of joy in recovery.

Saving Lives: Two wheels at a time!

A select few brave soldiers in recovery bore down upon the bike trails of Moab today, pushing their comfort zones to the brink. One pedal stroke after another drove the men up Amasa Back trail to the pristine vistas of the high desert. All you can eat pizza at Zax and a local twelve step meeting will round out day two of this trip, another successful day relentlessly pursuing joy in recovery.John Schneier Admissions Manager
