Working, but I dropped by home to bring DS a treat for lunch and figured I'd check in. Smiley

Interesting - I saw this topic as what am I meant to be doing with my life instead of what I'm doing now.    I'm sure it's working with people in some type of counseling capacity.   We are about to launch an NCADD (I'm a volunteer/advocacy leader) presentation aimed at addiction in the older population (of which I am one :-).  We boomers make up about one-third of the population so we're significant in numbers.

And I'd love to figure out some way to meld social dancing and recovery.

LOL maybe it's not what I was meant to do instead of what I'm doing now, maybe everything that came before was just prep work Cheesy

That sounds like a great goal.  I'm sure there's a way to combine the two to help others, because you have already done so in your own life to help yourself.  Let me think about this.

its a natural - what better way to meet and NOT drink than go to dancing?  I'm sure you can find studios that don't serve alchohol tha tmight waht to host a special weekly event.  Perhaps you could become a teacher yoruself?

There are huge numbers of recovering and want to be recovering adults.  There's a way to do this.  Just have to figure out what it is.

You can do this cha.

As a general rule, studios here do not serve alcohol, and the ballroom community generally observes the "ballroom dancing and alcohol do not mix" paradigm.   Occasionally there will be a dance held at a private club (Knights of Columbus, German-American, Polish-American - you get the idea) where there is alcohol available for purchase separately but it's not a part of the social itself.

Thank you for your thoughts!

Exactly why I believe your chances of success are so high.  I also believe that there's a need for people in recovery to have something like dance in their lives, because of the healing potential.

I'm not being pretentious or condescending, cha.  My family is full of alcoholism.  Some family members are in recovery. Some are in denial. One died from its effects.

There IS a need for the program you envision. There is.

But even if most events are free, one could still have an event that champions the alhcohol-free dance.  That might attract others with the same issue - it could be marketed as a positive step out - and probably would be supported by the medical/social services communities too.
