Recovery Program Helps Keep People Clean
In Wisconsin, one of the major pitfalls for recovering addicts is not being able to find things to do in place of the drugs and alcohol. It’s a problem one local group is working hard to solve. Coulee Council on Addictions recently started a new program that gives people the opportunity to take part in weekly outdoor events. It’s the brainchild of two recovering addicts.
The program not only gives people the opportunity to try new things like kayaking, canoeing and stand-up paddle boarding, but also serves as a support network. Everyone who attends the events is recovering from drugs or alcohol.
The group received a $15,000 grant earlier this summer from the Robert and Eleanor Franke Charitable Foundation to help make these weekly outdoor events a reality, and it’s giving these people more of a reason to stay clean. The road these recovering addicts have taken hasn’t been easy, but they say it’s worth it for a better life. The grant will help provide weekly events throughout the entire year. The group is planning snowshoeing and cross-country skiing events for this winter.
