The London Recovery Project invites the public to celebrate the many pathways to recovery from alcohol and drug abuse.

The volunteer-driven organization is hosting an open house from 6 to 8 p.m. May 13 at the London Community Center, 60 S. Walnut St. The event will include:

  • information about the local recovery community;
  • yoga, cardio and karate demonstrations;
  • info on acupuncture, chiropractic care and essential oils;
  • a silent auction;
  • an art exhibit featuring local artists;
  • face painting;
  • giveaways; and
  • representatives of area agencies associated with recovery.

The London Recovery Project was formed in September 2014. Members are individuals in long-term recovery from substance use disorders. Their mission is to serve as a resource bank for referrals to everything from 12-step programs and treatment to housing, clothing, food, transportation, and employment preparation.

“Our mission is helping others to sustain their recovery through education, awareness and referrals in Madison County and surrounding areas,” said member Becca Bozeman.

The group goes the extra mile for people in the recovery process, even bringing 12-step meetings to the homes of shut-ins. Two members are state-certified recovery coaches, providing one-on-one support from the perspective of people who have been through the same experience themselves. Members also serve as court advocates.

Soon, the organization will provide services to inmates preparing for release through the reintegration unit at Madison Correctional Institution in London.

The London Recovery Project is accredited as a recovery community organization through Ohio Citizen Advocates for Addiction Recovery. The group is working toward securing non-profit status.
