Supporting and Empowering Women in Recovery
We understand the many difficult challenges women face in their recovery process. AARC’s Women’s Christian Rehab is dedicated to helping women bring to light the myths, images and stereotypes that have played a role in shaping negative beliefs that may have contributed to their addiction. Exploring the origin and perceptions of womanhood is a recurring theme as issues surrounding self-esteem, personal boundaries and trusting your judgment are addressed. Experiential treatments such as role-play and art therapy is also incorporated into the curriculum.

During group therapy, women have the opportunity to express themselves in healthy ways, connect with other women who understand their struggles and strengthen their relationship with God through reflection on 12-Step devotions and scripture study. Our safe, nurturing space led by therapists who are addiction experts, facilitates healing, empowers women to take positive steps in their lives and offers ongoing support and resources to help women continue to flourish in their recovery.
