Over 20 teams of people in recovery, and their families gather to compete in a full day of sports. Some are atheletes and some are not, they work as a team to get through all the obstacles.
Endurance, sweat, competition, laughter, helping people through the challenges, making friends is all part of making new memories. Learning how to live life without drugs or alcohol.
Being substance free opens a whole new world to some. Many participants spent most of their days working to make money to feed their addiction. Sports Day is one of those events that helps people participate in life.
Addiction Recovery needs to be fun and interesting.
Many past participants say its the fun memories in early recovery that keep me from considering to use drugs again.
