Hold the Vision,
Trust the Process
Based out of Belmar, New Jersey, Root to Rise is a recovery community committed to
helping those recovering from drug and alcohol abuse remain clean and sober through physical activity.
A Very Special Announcement
Root to Rise is a registered nonprofit organization that provides free resources, services, and support to individuals recovering from addiction and other mental health issues. We believe that a combination of physical and mental diversion in the form of yoga, exercise, sport, and meditation can counteract addiction relapse. We also provide a strong, supportive community and foster personal development programs which are essential to maintaining sobriety. In addition, we deliver professional outreach programs for rehabilitation facilities, schools, and detention centers.
Your contributions allow us to be in a number of spaces including schools, rehabs, and detox facilities where we offer meditation
and yoga for free to those in recovery. These outreach programs benefit not only the client but the teacher and facilities as well.

Support us in our Mission
We have a really unique mission.
Everyone has been affected by addiction in some way, either directly suffering or watching a loved one suffer, and we’ve created an organization that works to help people within our local community stay clean and sober. We teach those in recovery to use consistent physical fitness as a means to prevent relapse, while providing a strong, supportive community to help hold them up. We provide free services, from yoga to group fitness, meditation, hiking, cycling, and more aimed at healing the whole person.
We are here for support. Call us today at 732-739-RISE
