The holidays can be a tough time to stay sober.
Society virtually shoves booze down your throat through the entire month of December. That can lead to bad decisions for people who struggle with an addiction. And, with an overdose epidemic killing more than 1,400 people a year across B.C., for those with an addiction to opioids, bad decisions are turning deadly.
Recovery Day B.C. has an answer for the very trickiest of nights to avoid alcohol and other drugs.
They’ll ring in 2019 with the popular cover band the Timebenders, plus DJ Lejos and DJ Dave Ally.
Tickets cost $125 for dinner and dancing or $25 without the meal. It’s all going down at the Anvil Centre (777 Columbia Street, New Westminster).
Proceeds support the group’s annual Recovery Day celebration, which is held in downtown New Westminster each September. Additional details are at recoverydaybc.com/.
