Once you have gone through treatment and you are traveling down your road toward achieving long-term sobriety, it’s important to remember that part of your recovery is learning to visit or take part in different sober friendly activities in and around the Orlando area. While we strongly recommend that you find time on a daily basis to attend an AA or an NA meeting. However, there are plenty of other things you can do on top of going to meetings that would help to maintain your sobriety.  

If you have ever lived in or visited Florida, you know full well that Orlando is the epicenter of all things Disney World. Although there is great fun that is associated with visiting Disney, that is certainly not the only thing to do in Orlando. If you are trying to plan a sober and family-friendly trip, there are plenty of things that you can do during your time in Orlando. Here are a few popular suggestions that you may want to try.

Taking part in an escape room puzzle is an excellent way to redevelop relationships.

The Escape Game Orlando is one of the best options for dynamic and fun escape rooms. Currently, the venue offers escape rooms with prison-break, gold rush, and painting heist themes. You can call ahead and book a private escape room party if you would like to do something special with your family.
