If SHE RECOVERS’ programs, events, recovery touch-points, and/or the community as a whole have made positive impact in your life, we invite you to create an impact statement so we may inspire and empower other women in or seeking recovery. Whether you include your full name or wish to remain anonymous, your words may be the reason another women finds hope and healing from substance use and/or mental health issues.

Your voice matters

and we want to empower you to share your experience in your own words.

Need a little spark of inspiration to get the words flowing?

Consider the following:

  • What does SHE RECOVERS® Foundation mean to you?
  • How has the community helped you?
  • What has been most impactful?
  • What connections, transformation, or growth have you experienced as a result of being part of this community?
  • What is one thing you wish other women in or seeking recovery knew about SHE RECOVERS Foundation?

Need a little more to get the creative fire going?

Here’s what other women have to say:

After a terrible relapse five years ago, I was desperate to find a community I could relate to, be inspired by, and feel safe in. When I discovered SHE RECOVERS I immediately felt like I had “come home”.

Frightened and alone, I tried to hurt myself. I wanted to feel something – anything. I found safety in SHE RECOVERS® – women who saw me when I couldn’t see myself.

There is something powerful about a community of women coming together, online from wherever they may be, to support each other in the common goal of recovery. I love the practical advice, and the creative alternatives to meetings like dance and yoga. I feel supported, encouraged, and safe here.

Connectedness is one of the most powerful things I get from SHE RECOVERS. It is true we are stronger together.
