The Rebound at Futures Program is modeled upon the experiences of Jayson Williams, NBA All-Star, author, and recovery advocate. Williams played for the Phoenix Suns, Philadelphia 76ers, and New Jersey Nets before suffering a career-ending injury and struggling with addiction and incarceration. With the support of NBA colleagues and friends, he entered recovery and dedicated his life to helping others.
Rebound at Futures emphasizes experiential and adventure-based programming to help clients get outside of their comfort zone. Rebound clients take part in fishing, paddle boarding, scuba diving, skydiving, wave running, and other outdoor activities. Mindful participation in new and challenging activities can yield clinical insights and teachable moments. Paying close attention to the ways in which we respond to stressful situations and interpersonal interactions can identify issues like negative self-image, mistrust, competitiveness, and others that can be addressed in real-time, and during therapy sessions.
Rebound is an activity-based program incorporating rigorous physical fitness, outdoor adventures, and team activities. Exercise, physical exertion, and skill-building develop physical and mental health. A healthy body promotes positive self-image. Rigorous fitness and activity restore and improve many aspects of physical health from organ function, blood pressure, sleep health, executive function, and more.
