A Woman’s Journal – Helping Women Recover

Helping Women Recover addresses issues that many women struggle with, especially if they are abusing alcohol or other drugs. Each woman’s path of healing is unique, but most of us find that it involves discovering our true selves, connecting in healthy relationships with others, understanding our sexuality, and gaining some spiritual connection. Recovery can be like a spiral upward, away from a life that revolves around objects of addiction (alcohol, prescription meds or other drugs, food, sex, and so forth) and outward into ever-widening circles of freedom, self-knowledge, and connection with others.

– Based on the work by Stephanie S. Covington
