ASPIRE (Achieving Sobriety by Promoting an Insightful Recovery Experience) is a pilot program developed by the YMCA of Montclair and the National Youth Recovery Foundation (NYRF), and funded in part by Partners for Health Foundation.

If you are between the ages of 18 and 30 and have 90 days or more of recovery from addiction to drugs or alcohol, ASPIRE is a program designed for you.

ASPIRE is a community based life-skill oriented program that is not associated with treatment, aftercare, Alcoholics Anonymous or any other recovery program.  Life, health and community are key components of ASPIRE.

The curriculum, designed by the NYRF, is based on interviews with hundreds of young people in recovery across the country. These young people identified a need for a community based program to fill in gaps around life skills, education and career planning that they missed while in active addiction.  They recommended a focus on their next phase of life, outside of their recovery program, that provided additional skill sets to enhance their lives including social, education and career goals.

OPEN HOUSE – Tuesday, October 17  7pm-9pm
Orientation – Tuesday, October 24, 7pm-9:30pm
Halloween Party 🎃(tentative) Tuesday, October 31 7pm-9pm

Prenatal/Postnatal Exercise Class
Pregnancy is a great time to get moving! In fact, engaging in regular physical activity while pregnant has incredible benefits for you and your baby. That’s why we offer Pre-Natal/PostNatal exercise classes that build and maintain your core strength, muscle tone, and overall mobility. Each week you will focus on a different area (upper body, lower body, core, balance, pelvic floor etc.) Yoga-based poses are also performed with activities that moms can continue to do daily at home to tone and strengthen muscle groups you need to have a healthy pregnancy, stay strong
through birth, and continue to gain strength and recover after baby’s/babies’ birth.

Benefits include:

  • Help reduce pregnancy discomfort (lower back pain, swollen ankles and hands)
  • Improves oxygen exchange at the placenta
  • Helps you sleep better and prepare your body for childbirth
