Thriving in Recovery: Oxford Alumni Connect for Celebration & Competition

Community is a cornerstone of the foundation of recovery. Recovery communities provide a safe and supportive space where people in recovery can connect with others who understand their experiences, share their struggles and triumphs, and learn from each other. But recovery communities are more than just a support system. They can also be a source of fun, happiness, and connection.

Another benefit to staying connected to your recovery community is fun and exciting alumni events!
