Knitting in Recovery partners with Evolve Outpatient Recovery Center in Camarillo, which treats teens struggling with substance abuse, eating disorders, depression and anxiety.
Part of the treatment plan at Evolve is to convene daily with nature as a way to actively and mindfully engage in and appreciate the world around us.
Knitting in Recovery integrated this communion with nature with a desire to incorporate fun and play into our lives when we recently had the boys and girls at Evolve’s outpatient center yarn bomb one of the trees outside the facility!
The clients finger crocheted all the chains, made pom poms and crocheted flowers.
People stopped to watch and left with big smiles on their faces. Knowing that they were bringing happiness into someone’s life made the kids feel really good about the work.
Here’s to spreading love, fun and color to the community!
