Kicking into higher gear for substance use recovery

Did you know that research shows that physical fitness is critically important for recovery? In addition to helping a person heal from the physical effects of addiction and promoting mind-body wellness, physical exercise and fitness supports the recovery journey. Self-care is one of the most important aspects of recovery.


Rise Up Central Kansas Project Coordinator Amy Ferguson and the Peer Navigators were a big part of making the "Let's Kick It Annual Kickball Game" a big success! Thanks to the strong collaboration of partners in Great Bend, the kickball event is a great example of promoting a healthier lifestyle with family, community members and food to nourish everyone. What better way for persons in recovery from substance abuse to continue receiving support from their friends, families, community members and organizations.


The numerous sponsors of this event cannot be thanked enough for employing people in recovery, supporting their journey and believing together that we can foster healthy and positive changes! Event sponsors were: Live Like Jesus Today Ministries, Eldridge Fencing, C&V Home Improvement, Rosencrantz- Bemus, Nami Kansas, Nami Goldenbelt Kansas, Oxford House Chapter 16, Kelly's Garden Sense, CrossPoint Great Bend, Heart of Kansas Family Health Care, Inc.
