  • 12-Step Retreat Weekends – These retreats take place 4 times per year: April, July, Sept/Oct and December. We review the 12-Steps from the S.L.A.A. Basic Text over the weekend. The retreats are not only about sharing experience, strength, and hope, but there is also a chance to have lots of fun and laughs as well! Please see upcoming events listed above to get info about specific retreats.

NEI has hosted a variety of events which have previously included a summer picnic/BBQ at Ponkapoag in Canton, biking the Minutemen bike path in Cambridge, canoeing on the Charles River, bowling, corn maze in Central MA, Fall Stroll at World’s End in Hingham and we have even hosted a talent show.  Are you interested in helping to arrange any of these events again or have other ideas for events you might want to host?  There is a Committee which meets to plan these events – email the Activities Committee for more information.
