Women's group for Addiction & PTSD
Do you find it hard to be sober and sane at the same time? If your life experience has included trauma and you used alcohol or other drugs to manage moods and performance, then this is the group for you. Our group is designed for women who have struggled with both addiction and PTSD. We are a strengths-based coaching group that will support you in developing skills that make it possible to experience better stability, creativity, happiness and energy in recovery. We explore not just addiction and PTSD, but also PTG-- that's Post Traumatic Growth-- which is defined as "positive psychological change," going beyond survival and resiliency to genuinely thriving and enjoying life. This closed group meets every other week for 90 minutes and is open to women seeking recovery, serenity, and happiness. Group orientation is on Wednesday July 26th at 1 pm Eastern Time. Interested?

While no one is allowed to attend when actively intoxicated, we welcome group members who may be still be using who want support on how to use alcohol or other drugs more safely, or to learn to moderate, as well as those who abstain from one drug and would like help dealing with another drug.
