Free food and a community that "gets it"!

Come meet and hang out with other HiRers.  No RSVP needed.  Not sure what to expect?  It's very casual and low-key.  There is some time for brief introductions and then checking in about how the last week has gone.  Check-in is followed by a recovery-related reading and discussion. You can share as much or as little as you'd like, and you don't need to prepare anything in advance. Meetings are held at the HiR House at 506 Valley Road and parking is available in the driveway!  We hope to see you there!
