Women in Recovery
Our backgrounds are unique, our stories vary, and our programs may differ, but we are all women in recovery and we come together to heal, transform, and connect.
"The mission of Women in Recovery is to create a caring community that provides education and spiritual growth opportunities for women in 12-step recovery programs."
Join us each month as we nurture, renew, and transform not only our programs but our lives.

(Suspended) This Naked Mind: Control Alcohol, Find Freedom, Discover Happiness and Change your Life
by Annie Grace.
We live in a world obsessed with drinking. As a society, we are obsessed with health and wellness, yet we uphold alcohol as some kind of magic elixir, though it is anything but. When Whitaker decided to seek help after one too many benders, she embarked on a journey that led not only to her own sobriety, but revealed the insidious role alcohol plays in society and in the lives of women in particular.

(Suspended) The Untethered Soul
by Michael Singer.
This gripping, heart-breaking and witty book takes us down the rabbit-hole of an alternative reality. A life with zero hangovers, sober weddings, sex, Christmases and breakups. In The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober, Catherine Gray shines a light on society’s drink-pushing and talks to top neuroscientists and psychologists about why we drink, delving into the science behind what it does to our brains and bodies.
