YORK, Pa. - Being "stone sober" can be dangerous for women in recovery. The saying refers to people being bored once they get off of drugs. The York Chapter of Not One More wanted to think of something fun for women, in recovery, to do that would also be beneficial.
"I wanted to give them something to give them more confidence, more self-esteem, empowering," said Alyssa Rohrbaugh.
A class will be offered in December, January and February. As long as there is interest they plan to host more and at different times.
Matheis is also a retired police officer. Not One More feels the class could bridge a gap between civilians and police.
"These guys, in recovery, can see that the police officers are not bad people. Maybe they’ll reach out to them more often, maybe they will be honest with them, maybe they will turn to them," said Rohrbaugh.
