Activities and Events

In the spirit of fellowship and inclusiveness NEI hosts various activities and events throughout the year. They always include the serenity prayer and a time for getting current. The longer events include opportunities to work our program. We update this page frequently with specific dates and locations.

Our events through the year usually include:

  • We Are Not Alone Get Together – An event in mid-February (around Valentine’s Day) for those who feel isolated or just want to be with others in recovery. We have a speaker, get current and play games.
  • Spring Vermont Weekend 12 Step Retreat – In Chester, Vermont (2 1/2-3 hours from Boston) the retreats are not only about sharing experience, strength, and hope, but a chance to have lots of fun and laughs as well! We not only work the Steps, but also provide an opportunity to get to know ourselves, as well as other addicts in a safe place. There is also ample opportunity for “down” time if your schedule is overwhelming you. (click for more information)
