We are strong and courageous women, and we do recover.
We recover from drug addiction, alcoholism, codependency, love and sex addiction, disordered eating and eating disorders, workaholism and perfectionism. We recover from depression and other mental illness, burnout, anxiety, stress, trauma, grief, physical, sexual and emotional abuse, self-harm, cancer and chronic illness. We recover from having our hearts broken, from losing our marriages, our homes, or our jobs. Women who are recovering in all areas of their lives and who follow all pathways of recovery are warmly welcomed here on She Recovers.
We’re stronger together.
LET’S CONTINUE TO CONNECT. SUBSCRIBE FOR EVENTS, OFFERS, RESOURCES, INSPIRATION & SO MUCH MORE!

I certainly had no idea that the 5 days I spent in New York would be as inspiring and life changing as the 30 days I spent in Bali last winter.
Women of all ages, living all over the world, are overdosing or dying of other substance-related deaths. To be clear – I know that men are dying too, but my life’s focus happens to be on the women who are dying and the mothers and sisters and female friends who have to bury them. We read or hear about these ever-increasing and seemingly-multiplying deaths every bloody day.
