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 have four kids, a graduate degree, and a successful career. People think I’m a wonderful mother. I know this, because they’ve told me.
What they don’t know is that I drank alcoholically during my pregnancy with my fourth child. If they knew that, of course, their assessment would be different.
Today is my 25th wedding anniversary. Just writing that blows my mind. About 27 years ago I walked into a marathon meeting at a 12 step convention being held for recovering addicts in Edmonton, Alberta (Canada) and a male voice from the corner of the room said “Hey, I know you.” I had about 3 weeks clean at the time and as many of you recovering types know, being recognized by people in your early recovery can be more than slightly freaking scary.
