New Sober Social Event Scheduled

Cape Codders are familiar with shorter days and colder months, but the cold temperatures can change the way we socialize and can often leave us feeling lonely.  Did you know that loneliness and social isolation are harmful to our health? Research shows that lacking social connections is as damaging to our health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day.  Social networks and friendships not only have an impact on reducing the risk of mortality or developing certain diseases, but are essential for those in recovery from substance use.  L
Luckily, The Cultural Center of Cape Cod is creating, “Sober Social Evenings” starting January 2017.  These events will be held monthly in order to serve those in recovery from addiction by offering a vibrant, entertaining, substance-free atmosphere highlighting different themes and activities centered around the arts. Each Sober Social Evening will feature a fun and engaging theme: paint nights, dance parties, art workshops, a Sober Story Slam, open mics, and a pizza-making night to name a few.
While the program is geared towards those in recovery, all are welcome to attend. The first Sober Social on Friday, January 13, from 7:30 to 10 PM will be a trivia game night with prizes, pizza, and a hot chocolate bar. The Sober Socials are free, and all refreshments are complimentary. Please do NOT bring your own refreshments.Registration is optional but will make sure there is enough pizza!
