Team Member: CHSP Women for Recovery Housing
EVENT DATE Apr 22, 2017
The opioid crisis cannot be ignored; addiction is real. RECOVERY is real, too. Women For Recovery seeks to provide a clean and sober housing environment to support women in southeastern Ohio who are seeking a way out of addiction.
The road to recovery from addiction (alcohol or other substances) is much like the path of a runner or triathlete new to racing. It starts with a commitment that engages in the “one day at a time” philosophy. For an athlete, the thought of completing a triathlon is daunting; for anyone suffering from the disease of addiction, so is the thought of being clean & sober the rest of one's life. Success requires support, training, and personal dedication. We need the advice of others who have done it before and help along the way. Our Women's Recovery House--a house in Athens County where women can "train" for sober living with loving support--is a goal that cannot be accomplished without the help of our community. TOGETHER, LET'S WIN THIS RACE!
