What is Hoos in Recovery (HiR)?

Free food and a community that "gets it"! Come meet and hang out with other HiRers on Wednesday nights. 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. We hope to see you there!
