WOMEN FOR SOBRIETY
Women for Sobriety is an organization whose purpose is to help all women find their individual path to recovery through discovery of self. We share experiences, hopes, and encouragement with other women in similar circumstances. We are an abstinence-based, self-help program for women overcoming challenges with alcohol and other drug use. The New Life Program acknowledges the needs women have in recovery – the need to nurture feelings of self-value and self-worth, and the desire to discard feelings of guilt, shame, and humiliation.
Women for Sobriety is unique in that it is an organization of women for women. We are not affiliated with any other recovery organization and stand on our own principles and philosophies. The New Life Program offers a variety of recovery tools to guide a woman in developing coping skills which focus on emotional growth, spiritual growth, self-esteem, and a healthy lifestyle. We encourage all women to engage in lifelong personal development through our 13 Acceptance Statements.
Women for Sobriety believes that addiction began to overcome stress, loneliness, frustration, or emotional deprivation in daily life – dependence often resulted. The physical, mental, and emotional components of addiction are overcome with abstinence from all substances and the self-awareness gained by practicing the program. Participation in Women for Sobriety requires a sincere desire for a New Life. We live by the philosophy: “Release the past – plan for tomorrow – live for today.”
