AA and NA Recovery Events
At A Friend of Bill's we
want our residents to know that the recovery process is not all
work. You can have fun getting clean and sober,
and just because you are straight doesn't mean that you have to
be bored. As a matter of fact, we feel so strongly about
this that we feature some of the fun events at the top of our web
pages. Click on one of them to see a larger view of recovering
alcoholics and drug addicts having fun at the various events sponsored
locally by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA).
On most any weekend of the year, there are recovery events in
Lebanon, Hendersonville and the Nashville, TN area. There are dances,
eating meetings and assemblies where speakers from around the country
come to share their experiences in sobriety. On this page we highlight
a few of the many recovery events available to
encourage all of our clients to participate. Life doesn't have
to be dull
clean and sober!
