The residents at Bridgewell’s Recovery Housing programs attended multiple fairs, celebrations, and events, from Boston to Stoneham, to celebrate Recovery Month.
Why attend recovery-focused events? These events allow those in recovery to gather with a community of people who understand their personal experiences, they provide opportunities to build new friendships and help others, and they can also help to redefine fun.
Being in fun, social situations, with the new lens of sobriety, can help improve overall wellness, reduce stress and support long-term recovery. For some people in treatment, drugs and alcohol used to represent fun and social settings, but now, events such as Recovery Fest and Recovery Day demonstrate the ability to have fun while sober, with a supportive community.
