Drug Addicts Use CrossFit for Recovery at the Charlotte Rescue Mission

Here’s a local news segment showing how a rescue mission in Charlotte is using CrossFit to help recovering drug addicts. Welcome to the cult, gentlemen!

The Charlotte Rescue Mission is setting a unique approach to drug addiction recovery by incorporating the Crossfit exercise for more than 100 men.
The Mission brings in people addicted to drugs and alcohol for a 90-day treatment program. They live in-house for free while the Mission helps them on their road to recover — and now intense exercise is being used to help them better their health.
