For people recovering from substance-use disorders, it can be hard to find sober activities. This can be especially tough in the Monadnock Region, with many social outings held in bars or at events, like sports games, surrounded by alcohol.
To help, Reality Check — a nonprofit in Jaffrey that offers drug and alcohol prevention resources, education and recovery services — is starting a hiking group for those in recovery this summer, aimed at utilizing the region’s expansive outdoors to help people heal.
The free hiking group, called Rogue Recovery, will convene on the first Sunday of each month. The hikes will be easy or moderate, so that all levels of experience are welcome. (Pets can tag along, too, as long as the trail allows it).
People who aren’t in recovery are also welcome to join the group, such as those who’ve lost a loved one to addiction or anyone who wants to be part of a sober activity.
The hikes will run until October, when the weather gets colder.
Those who are interested in participating can join Reality Check’s Rogue Recovery Facebook group.
