It’s a family and community event where you can walk, run, or cycle along the Northern Rail Trail at your own pace, then enjoy a BBQ at Colburn Park (i.e. The Green) in Lebanon, NH. The course follows an 8 mile leg of the Northern Rail Trail that starts in Lebanon, NH (just across from the CCBA) and passes trestle bridges, rock cliffs, and lake views on its way to Enfield, NH. For the first 50 people who get to Enfield, we give them pie! We’ve seen runners, cyclists and even the occasional very fast walker get all the way out there.

Inspired Recovery is an annual festival organized by a coalition consisting of persons in recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs, their family members, friends and allies. It is a celebration of the wonderful lives people can live in recovery, lauding their contributions and acknowledging that prevention and treatment work, and hundreds of thousands can and do recover each year.
It is a community building effort, seeking to strengthen the bonds among people in recovery, their family members, friends and allies and increase the number of supports available to them in the community.
Inspired Recovery also serves to foster a culture of recovery in New Hampshire, supporting the belief that everyone has a right to, and is capable of, recovery from substance abuse.

A free event to celebrate recovery. Enjoy live music, the spoken word, visual art, and great conversation.
NOPE Task Force lights up the night to remember those lost to and suffering from the disease of addiction. Many lives have been destroyed by substance abuse and the disease of addiction. Too often, this disease is perceived as deserved and shameful, leaving families to grieve in silence, or an addict struggling to recover alone. The NOPE Vigil strives to raise awareness and open the doors to recovery by eliminating the prejudice that follows the disease of addiction. The vigil is held in memory of the 30,000 United States citizens who die from accidental drug poisonings each year. Please join us for this special event honoring those whose lives have been lost, while giving hope to those who are still on the road to recovery.
THE ANONYMOUS PEOPLE is a feature documentary film about the over 23 million Americans living in long-term recovery from alcohol and other drug addiction. Deeply entrenched social stigma have kept recovery voices silent and faces hidden for decades. The vacuum has been filled with sensational mass media depictions of people with addiction that perpetuate a lurid fascination with the dysfunctional side of what is a preventable and treatable health condition. Just like women with breast cancer, or people with HIV/AIDS, a grass roots social justice movement is emerging. Courageous addiction recovery advocates have come out of the shadows and are organizing to end discrimination and move toward recovery-based solutions.
