Game Room

Addiction is a serious and tragic illness, but recovery can be really fun. The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous states, “We are not a glum lot. We absolutely insist on enjoying life.” (page 132). One of the unique features that Chapter House offers is a Marvel themed recreation room with game tables, a fully stocked game cabinet, a pool table, an arcade machine, _LHE8405and a pinball machine. The goal is to encourage young men to enjoy games in a community setting, as opposed to the isolated activity of playing video games. Video games are not allowed at Chapter House for this very reason. Instead of restricting gaming entirely, we provide numerous opportunities for community gaming in a way that builds a sense of belonging and balance. Opportunities to use the game room fall within the structure of the resident schedule.
