Tribes of the recovering community

wharfratIn Pathways: From the culture of addiction to the culture of recovery, Bill White shared the concept of tribes within the culture of recovery.

One tribe of the recovering community is the Wharf Rats. They started as a group of recovering Dead-Heads and currently describe themselves as “a group of concert-goers who have chosen to live drug and alcohol free. Our primary purpose at the shows is to make ourselves available to anyone who feels we may have something they want. We offer support, strength, fellowship and hope.”

There’s much more diversity in the recovering community than most people realize.
