Social Life in Recovery

Knapp House understands the need for a social outlet for young people in recovery. Just because you don’t want to drink and use drugs anymore, doesn’t mean you don’t want to have fun!

The 4th Dimension is a dedicated sober club that provides a safe and fun environment for the recovery community. We strongly encourage each of our members to check it out. They house 12 step meetings, dances, game nights, movie nights, Blazers games on the big screen and everything in between!

See their event calendar here and keep up with them on Facebook to stay connected to the social hub within the recovery community in Portland.
