Women's Recovery Group

The Women's Recovery Group is designed for adult women seeking recovery from addiction.  In a structured format designed for confidential discussion, the group educates individuals about the disease of addiction, addresses various aspects of an individual's life that have contributed to & been affected by the addiction, & teaches various coping techniques and strategies that are instrumental for success in recovery.

Recovery is a process.  If you’re ready to admit you have a problem with addiction, you've taken the first step.  It takes tremendous strength and courage to face addiction head on.  Reaching out for help is the second step.  Support is essential in recovery from addiction.  It is crucial to have people you can lean on for encouragement, comfort, and guidance.  There is hope and help available, and you have the power to make sustainable changes in your life.  

The Women's Recovery Group is a 36-session 18-week program that meets twice a week, on Monday & Thursday Evenings, from 6 pm to 8 pm.
