SALVATION ARMY HARBOR LIGHT CENTER TO HOST

SOBER SUPER BOWL PARTY       

 

WHAT:           The Salvation Army Harbor Light Center, a licensed substance abuse treatment facility, will hold its 7th annual Super Bowl party for individuals recovering from drug and alcohol addiction and their family members.

The Super Bowl is often an event synonymous with wings, nachos and game-day snacks, as well as beer and other alcoholic beverages. The Salvation Army Harbor Light Center provides an alternative Super Bowl experience for recovering alcoholics and their families. For many attending, this may be their first sober Super Bowl party, marking an important milestone in their recovery journey.  The event offers the festivity and camaraderie associated with the Super Bowl Party tradition, as well as the support and understanding of fellow peers in recovery, friends and loved ones.

The Super Bowl game will be projected on a 10 ft screen with a state-of-the-art sound system.  A variety of classic super bowl snacks and non-alcoholic cold drinks will be served throughout the game.

The Salvation Army Harbor Light Super Bowl Party is free and open to Harbor Light clients, their families and the community.
