Every year, the Lyerly Recovery Club has the Alacthon and Barbecue Competition, inviting recovering addicts and alcoholics across the city to compete in a cook off.

This year, eight teams represented various fellowship of sober living Houston and AA Clubs. This was the first year Team Eudaimonia entered the competition. The team was full of various residents from the Eudaimonia sober houses in the Houston area and they successfully took home the following medals:
- 1st place for Brisket
- 3rd place for Barbecue Chicken
What was the special ingredient in the food that to Eudaimonia Recovery Homes apart from others? The answer is simple. Teamwork and fellowship. Eudaimonia is a community of recovering addicts and alcoholics supporting each other through every stage of the recovery process. Eudaimonia residents that weren’t on the team joined the community atmosphere at the “Team Eudaimonia” tent and tables. They also listened to music, ate good food and met new people to expand their recovery circle. The sober living in Houston Eudaimonia team is looking forward to its next event, the and friends/family fun day at Fiesta Texas in San Antonio Texas.
