Clients at Recovery Associates' Christian Rehab Center are invited to go on fishing trips, scavenger hunts, Open Mic nights—all as part of the program. The Alumni Program director shares how rewarding these events can be, “It’s amazing to watch clients really embrace their new found sobriety. It’s normal for people in early sobriety to feel like they won’t be able to have fun without drugs and alcohol. One of the lies that we tell ourselves in our active addiction is that getting high is fun and that we would be bored if we didn’t use. Of course the truth is that, at the end, many of us were getting high alone and were miserable. Planned sober events shows them that not only can they be in a social situation without a drink or a drug and still connect to people, but that they can laugh until their stomachs hurt and not wake up with a hangover the next day.”
