RCA at Bracebridge Hall Warriors program provides camaraderie and accountability to men in recovery
Authored by Ken Redmile
Paul Norris, after seeing how many men in recovery lacked a strong male presence, created the warriors program, to provide men in recovery at the Recovery Centers of America in Bracebridge Hall increased accountability and camaraderie.
“People in general are looking to be led,” Norris, the Wellness Coordinator at Bracebridge, said. “I know I am. I know I want to be held accountable because the farther we move away from accountability the farther we move away from our goals and dreams.”
Norris worked for RCA for over five years, beginning the warriors program in January. The program at first often consisted of people who were having difficulty at Bracebridge, a drug rehabilitation center in Earleville. Norris often starts the warriors off with simple tasks, such as keeping their room clean or making their bed everyday.
