Chris Raymer to Lead Amarillo Workshop

Recovery Community Director Chris Raymer will lead a Sobriety for Keeps workshop for alumni and the recovery community on Saturday, Nov. 9, at First Christian Church in Amarillo.

The event, which is open to anyone in recovery, is scheduled to start at 5 p.m. in the church’s Snodgrass Hall with fellowship and then the workshop at 6 p.m. The church is located at 3001 Wolflin Ave. in Amarillo.

Chris will share things “we can do that will positively affect our sobriety” that he learned while traveling his personal road to recovery and his work in the field. He’s now been sober for 31 years.

It Didn’t Come Easy

“I spent seven years trying to get sober–meetings, therapy, meds, church–nothing seemed to work consistently,” says Chris. “I’m always amazed how some folks seem to get well so quickly, while some of us continued to struggle.”

“Working in the treatment field for the last 26 years, I’ve watched many folks make the same mistakes I did. Life is complicated, and we are all different, but the solution is the same for most of us.”

November Speaking Engagements

Other upcoming speaking engagements by Chris include a recovery talk at 2:30 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 2, at Alamo Heights Methodist Church in San Antonio.

On Wednesday, Nov. 6, he will do a recovery talk in Dallas, and on Nov. 17 he will speak in Milford, Connecticut.
