Making the calendar for the upcoming months brings about excitement for warm weather, recovery events and yearly traditions taken part in by Doorway to Recovery clients.
Spiritual Meetings- An evening of prayers, healing, and recovery from the past. These meetings take place in the outdoor seasons (spring, summer, and fall), and are welcome to anybody who is in recovery or who loves someone in recovery.
Red Wings Game- Doesn’t need much further explanation. Clean/Sober fun at Joe Louis Arena.
Jamapalooza – One of Doorway to Recovery’s fundraising events featuring music, food, and a good time. Jamapalooza events are donation based and all donations go to helping The Doorway to Recovery’s mission.
Spring Cleaning – Each year, DTR Homes are cleaned from top to bottom. While this may seem like a daunting task, Spring Cleaning really helps to motivate clients in the homes, while providing life skills that last far beyond the reaches of our recovery homes…
Tiger’s Outings – Just like the Red Wing’s Game— no explanation needed.
Dawn Farm Trips – Dawn Farms has a wonderful educational series, featuring information on addiction and recovery. Occasionally through the year we take the vans to Ypsilanti for these wonderful educational series.
Fun nights at the office- While every Monday, our regular Doorway to Recovery residential meeting meets, occasionally we are blessed to have guest speakers, open houses, theme nights, and lots of other fun stuff! There is always fun stuff going on.
Canoe Trips – One of my most fondly remembered Doorway to Recovery trip was our Milford Canoe Trip. Each summer, we have the opportunity to canoe down the river into Downtown Milford for a concert and food. This event is incredibly fun, until you get home to feel the burn from the day of paddling.
The yearly Christmas Party- The Doorway to Recovery dinner, featuring fellowship around one of the most difficult times of the year for many alcoholics and addicts. This truly changes many people’s perceptions of the word family, and brings a whole new meaning to it.
The Doorway to Recovery has all sorts of functions for all different seasons. As The Doorway to Recovery continues to grow as an organization, we are always experiencing new, more fun events and functions. With that being said, everybody enjoy your Tuesday… and why not every day above and beyond that!
