Some Montford Hall students are playing lacrosse on an Asheville club team this season! Giving students the chance to get plugged into the community while pursuing a passion is an important dimension of our true-to-life recovery model.
“It’s great to see our students in their element,” says Director of Student Life Jessica Potter-Bowers, “playing a sport they love and finding real sober joy in the experience.”
Our lacrosse players are radiating a new-found confidence and energy that is contagious within the milieu.
“Nothing really captures true-to-life recovery like our guys enjoying a club lacrosse experience,” says Executive Director Alex Kirby, Psy.D. “They’re part of a real team that extends beyond the walls of a treatment program, and they’re getting an idea of how great a life in recovery can actually be.”
