Recovery Movie Meetups

At Innovation 360, we’re thrilled to introduce Recovery Movie Meet-ups as part of our services. We’re passionate about offering creative options for recovery and therapy, believing that sobriety and seeking help should be not just transformative, but also enjoyable and engaging.

These sessions provide an opportunity for individuals to reflect on their own experiences, gain insights from cinematic narratives, and engage in supportive discussions within a community setting.

How does it work?

  1. Introduction and Setting the Scene: We’ll kick off each session by gathering in a welcoming space, setting the stage for an enriching experience. Participants will learn about the purpose of our program – to use the power of storytelling in movies to explore the nature of addiction, reflect on personal experiences, and find inspiration for positive change.
  2. Workbook and Personal Engagement: Each participant will receive a workbook, which serves as both a practical tool and a symbolic keepsake. They’ll personalize it with their name, sober date, and contact information, making it an integral part of their recovery journey. This workbook will house thought-provoking questionnaires, offering opportunities for introspection and growth during and beyond our sessions.
  3. Meet-and-Greet: Ice-breaker time! We’ll start by getting to know each other, fostering a sense of community and support. From sharing favorite movies to discussing personal reflections on addiction and recovery, this initial interaction sets the tone for open dialogue and connection.
  4. Introducing the Movie: Lights, camera, action! With our workbook as our guide, we’ll introduce the movie selected for the session. Participants will gain insights into why this film is relevant to our exploration of addiction and recovery, learning about key characters and themes. Fun movie trivia adds an extra dash of excitement as we prepare to embark on our cinematic journey.
  5. Watching the Movie: Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show! We’ll screen the movie, allowing participants to immerse themselves fully in the story. Throughout the screening, the facilitator may pause at strategic points to encourage group feedback and reflection, maximizing the learning experience.
  6. Open Discussion: Lights up, discussion on! Following the movie, we’ll dive into a rich conversation guided by the questionnaires in our workbooks. Drawing inspiration from motivational interviewing techniques, these discussions spark moments of insight and personal growth. Participants are also encouraged to pose their own questions, fostering deeper analysis and connection within the group.
  7. Continued Engagement and Reflection: Our journey doesn’t end with the closing credits. Participants are invited to continue engaging with the material in their workbooks, whether by completing questionnaires on their own time or bringing insights to share in future sessions. This ongoing reflection ensures that our Recovery Movie Meet-ups leave a lasting impact on each participant’s recovery journey.

Lights, camera, RECOVERY – join us for an unforgettable cinematic experience where every frame holds the promise of inspiration and transformation!
