Phoenix House’s fourth annual Climb for Recovery! at Monadnock State Park is set for Saturday, June 22, with rain date of Saturday, June 29—just in case. We know nothing can dampen the spirits of our climbers, but—just in case—if the weather does threaten, check this web page for rain date confirmation.
After registration at 10:00 a.m. at the Main Pavilion of Monadnock State Park, participants will hike selected trails to the summit of beautiful Mount Monadnock, one of the world’s most frequently climbed mountains. Each participant will receive a Phoenix House water bottle and other mementos. Refreshments will be provided and a raffle with great prizes will add to the excitement.
All funds raised by Climb for Recovery! support Phoenix House’s substance abuse treatment programs throughout New Hampshire. Within the shadow of Mount Monadnock, Phoenix House Academy at Dublin provides residential treatment and academic tutoring to adolescents; Phoenix House Dublin Center offers comprehensive residential services for adults, including those with co-occurring mental health issues; and Phoenix House Keene Center provides detoxification, outpatient treatment for adults and adolescents, as well as transitional living for those who have completed rehabilitation. Farther afield, Phoenix House Franklin Center provides crisis intervention, detoxification, residential rehabilitation, and transitional living, while Phoenix House Sober Living Center at Cornerstone offers sober housing for adult men in early recovery.
Registration costs are $20 per person, $10 for additional family members aged 15 and over, with kids under 15 admitted free of charge. To register online, click here. All participants are urged to ask family and friends to sponsor their efforts on behalf of Phoenix House. For more information, please call 1 888 671 9392. We look forward to seeing many members of the community on Mount Monadnock as we all Climb for Recovery together!
