Recovery from addiction is a STRUGGLE! Whether you're new to recovery or been trudging the road for awhile, there are always new things to learn, new insights to gain,and new connections to be made. The current statistics tout that only 1 in 18 addicts who actually try some sort of recovery STAY in recovery longer than 5 years.

The goal of this event is to build a community of women who want to beat those odds!

This event is for you if:

  • You are a recovery addict wanting to expand your recovery circle and support!
  • You are the partner or relative of a recovering addict working your own recovery program.
  • You want to learn from CSAT therapists about the skills it takes to stay IN recovery!
  • You are a member of a recovery community looking to support women in recovery.
  • You want to Level Up your recovery in any way, shape, or form!

Starting recovery is not the easiest thing to do. You walk out of an addictive and co-dependent life and need to develop new ways of living. At each twist in the road, each new revelation about you and your relationships, more is required of you. Starting recovery is hard - but staying in recovery requires even more!

One of the FIRST events of its kind!

There are many women out there drowning in shame about their addiction and behavior and they don’t have a support circle to turn to. Maybe they get the courage to attend a 12-step recovery meeting, and walk into a room full of men. Where a man sees a room full of other people like him, a woman does not. Where a man feels the loneliness and shame subside, a woman usually does not.

Join the movement to unite women together!
