About Real Deal
Who are we?
We are life savers
We were founded in 2015 and opened our first facility in 2016. We started with a simple idea: to help the newly sober reintegrate into society. A few years later we have added some components, but have stayed true to our mission. At Real Deal, sober is just the beginning.
Why Real Deal?
Our Daily Focus
Most people do not take very good care of their bodies when they are drinking or using drugs. Once they decide to get sober, they often want to get in shape, but don’t know where to start. This is where lifting weights comes in. Regular exercise is important to good health and can play a major role in the recovery process. Lifting is a popular and convenient way to get this exercise.
Weight lifting has a lot to offer for beginners, since new lifters can start with small weights and work their way up over time. It continues to offer benefits to those who have been lifting for years as well. Those who stick to a lifting plan, like the one we provide our residents, experience major positive changes.
Lifting is also a convenient form of exercise. Most neighborhoods have a gym in close proximity, and being inside means weather is not an issue. It is also easy for multiple people to lift together—this helps to build relationships and have fun, both of which are important parts of recovery.
This word makes a lot of people nervous. However, when we talk about spirituality, we aren’t talking about religion. It’s not about a certain church or denomination. What matters to us is connection: connection to ourselves and those around us.
Getting a job is a great way to start rebuilding your life. Employment also teaches those in recovery the concept of value. At a job, we work for pay and begin to associate action with a reward. This association is missing for many after the devastation of addiction.
