Move Over Hangover –
December 9, 2019 – Despite the bar’s name, Cherokee Recovery Village is not just a bar for recovering addicts, but even for the sober who finds being in a ‘bar scene’ fun. French said: “It has really wakened people up on the health benefits of getting sober even if it’s just for a short period of time.”
Ember Zenchyshyn, an alcoholic that has been three years sober to this date said that the dry tavern doesn’t only provide a fun lifestyle option, but it also prepares her for the time when she has to inevitably step foot in a bar – and will have the willpower to refuse an alcoholic drink. “You’re not going to be able to avoid stuff forever. It’s life, you just don’t want to get into recovery to stop living life, you’re getting into recovery to enjoy life,” says Zenchyshyn.
