    Does anybody think that tri has supported their recovery from alcohol or drug abuse?

    Thanks in advance for sharing.

    You might be interested in the documentary “A New High”. It’s about a recovery program that helps people get off drink/drugs by teaching them to climb Mount Rainier. I watched it earlier in the year and enjoyed it.

    Trailer is here: Should be available to rent on Netflix and iTunes.
