Make A Difference

Active Rehabilitation is a community peer-based approach that first started in Sweden in 1976. Instead of wrapping them in cottonwool and not allowing them to do anything but lie on a bed as was the norm, Sweden developed AR training camps providing intensive, goal-oriented, intentional, group-based, customized training and peer-support opportunities in a community environment.

Reintegration back into society and the workforce Ayurveda, Yoga and naturopathy will be the foundation’s principals. Addressing the body as a whole – physical, mental, emotional and backing it up with nutrition.
