Recovery and Wellness Rooms Available at DNC

Every event at the both the Democratic and the Republican National Conventions is drowning in booze.

For those who are in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction, the convention hoopla must be akin to the seventh circle of hell.

The Recovery Wellness Rooms, available from today through Thursday and sponsored by the Recovery Caucus, will be a welcome respite from all the shenanigans and foolishness happening throughout the rest of the convention in Charlotte.

The caucus has printed cards inviting interested convention-goers to attend “the Recovery Caucus meeting on Tuesday, September 4th at 2 p.m. in Convention Center Room #214.”

At the meeting, former Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy (D-R.I.) and David Wellstone, son of the late Sen. Paul Wellstone (D-Minn.), will be joining other delegates in recovery.
