GROUP GUIDELINES

If you are a woman (or a non-binary individual who identifies with women’s communities) and if you are in recovery or seeking recovery, you are welcome here. The SHE RECOVERS® Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity. Our mission is to inspire hope, reduce stigma, and empower women in or seeking recovery for substance use and/or mental health challenges to increase their recovery capital, heal themselves, and help other women to do the same.

SHE RECOVERS Groups and spaces are professionally facilitated and peer-driven. All offerings are trauma-informed. If you are seeking accessible, individualized, and trauma-focused therapeutic support we invite you to register for therapy with BetterHelp.com. SHE RECOVERS is grateful to BetterHelp for making a $100,000 donation in support of our mission in 2021 and for providing our community with a 35% discount on the first month of therapy. Register at betterhelp.com/srf to receive the relentless care and support you deserve today.

GROUP DISCLAIMER

The SHE RECOVERS® Together and SHE RECOVERS® Support Facebook Groups are designed to be supportive, recovery-focused communities. The SHE RECOVERS® Foundation platforms and resources are not a replacement for trauma therapy, addiction treatment, psychiatric, or medical care. In the event of an emergency please dial 911 or an emergency hotline in your area. If you require immediate care please:

  • Call an emergency hotline such as: 1-800-662-HELP (4357)
  • Text the Crisis Line – A live, trained crisis counselor via a simple text for help. The first few responses will be automated until they get a counselor on the line — which typically takes less than five minutes. If you are in the US or Canada, text 741741. If you are in the UK, text 85258.

Privacy

Because you are required to use your personal Facebook account while interacting with this group, whatever is listed as public on your profile may be viewable to other group members. Use of Facebook is done at your own risk. SHE RECOVERS is not responsible for the actions or policies of Facebook or any of its users.

We invite you to check out our Intentions & Guiding Principles to see if what we believe in feels like a fit for you.

  • Substance use disorders (including alcohol use disorder and opioid use disorder)
  • Trauma (including PTSD, brain injury, gender-based, racial, childhood, and intergenerational trauma)
  • Codependency and co-addiction
  • Anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues
  • Eating disorders, disordered eating, and other food-related issues
  • Grief and loss (including divorce or job loss)

SHE RECOVERS® TOGETHER FACEBOOK GROUP GUIDELINES:

CONFIDENTIALITY

The identities and all information and experiences shared by others must remain strictly confidential. Unless requested by an admin for corrective action, taking screenshots of comments, posts, or members in the group will result in your immediate removal and/or temporary or permanent ban from the group. You are welcome to share your own personal experience of SHE RECOVERS with other individuals you deem as supportive.

RECOVERY FOCUSED

You are encouraged to consider the nature of your share, comment, or post and strive to keep all focused on recovery. “Who is a hockey fan?” is not a recovery focused statement but “watching hockey in my family has been a tradition for years. It is one of the ways we seem to genuinely have fun and connect with each-other. Can anyone relate?”  is. Add context to memes. Avoid using the group feed to “vent”, “dump”, or engage in interpersonal conflicts with other group members; but rather to gain a sense of connection, support, and empowerment. Meeting links that include men (including trans-men or non-binary individuals who identify with men’s communities) or posted without descriptions aren’t permitted.

Posts that appear to be made under the influence will be removed and post-approval will be turned on.

OBTAIN CONSENT

Don’t send DMs or friend requests to other members unless you have received prior consent to do so (i.e. within a SRT Gathering, via the SHE RECOVERS Global contacts doc, offline, group comment i.e. “send me a DM.”). SHE RECOVERS Together Group Admins and /or SHE RECOVERS Coaches who facilitate the SHE RECOVERS Together Online Gatherings, may reach out to a member in crisis to ensure they are not at risk of harming themselves or others.

NO MEDICAL ADVICE

Please share only from a place of personal experience and support. Diagnosing, making medication and/or supplement recommendations, and giving medical advice should be done only by a physician or qualified health professional during a private consultation.

BE KIND

If you make a rude comment or an unkind, insulting, or bullying post, especially directly or indirectly geared toward one individual – your post will be removed and you may also be temporarily or permanently banned from the group.

TRIGGERING OR POTENTIALLY HARMFUL POSTS

Posts that are potentially harmful in nature such as: glorifying and promotion of substance use and/or addictive behaviors, promotion of disordered eating practices, condoning criminal behavior, violent intent, visually graphic, and/or explicit posts will be removed at the discretion of our admins.

We STRONGLY suggest that you include a trigger warning by starting your post with ***Trigger Warning*** and leave space so viewers can choose to expand the post to see content for any topic that may mention:

  • Violence and assault (sexual or physical)
  • Suicide and suicidial ideation
  • Overdose
  • Death
  • Self-injurious behavior
  • References to weight, weight loss, BMI, cleansing, and fasting

If a member discloses that your share contains content that is triggering to them, please edit your post to contain the ***Trigger Warning*** Tag.

NO FUNDRAISING, CROWDFUNDING, OR MONETARY REQUESTS

Requests for donations, money, or fundraisers that are not a SHE RECOVERS® Foundation initiative are not permitted. We empathize that recovering individuals can face financial hardship. SHE RECOVERS provides accessible opportunities for connection and healing as a response to these needs. If you wish to raise funds for SHE RECOVERS please consider creating a FB Fundraiser, shop via AmazonSmile, make a donation, or contact us about our Friends of SHE RECOVERS program.

NO SELF PROMOTION

The following are strictly prohibited: 

  • The use of promotional hashtags i.e. #beachbody #liveclean
  • Sales funnels (requiring individuals to sign up or subscribe)
  • Posting or re-sharing from your Facebook business page, website, and associated social platforms
  • Posting with the intention to advertise, promote, or sell a product or service
  • Contacting a group member privately with the intention to promote an offering, service, or resource
  • Contractors, associates, or team members hired to post on your behalf

The ONLY exception is within a comment in response to a community member asking for what you may specifically have to offer. This is considered obtaining consent to comment (no DMs) with a FREE one-click-to-access (requiring no exchange of personal information) resource ONLY i.e. a direct link to a relevant website, podcast or blog.

Please always consider your intention. If your resource is not relevant to what is being asked for it will be removed and you may be banned.

SHE RECOVERS® COACHES & PROMOTIONS

SHE RECOVERS Coaches and SHE RECOVERS Trauma-Informed Yoga Teachers are permitted to self-promote within 24 hrs before and after facilitating a SHE RECOVERS Together Gathering and within the #SHERECOVERSCoachYogaResources feed. Detailed promotional guidelines are provided to all SHE RECOVERS Coaches. SHE RECOVERS Admins and team members are permitted to promote SHE RECOVERS offerings at any time.

CONTRIBUTE MORE THAN YOU CRITICIZE

We are committed to co-creating a welcoming environment of support that celebrates diversity. SHE RECOVERS believes women have to be supported to find and follow individualized pathways and patchworks of recovery. We support all pathways and criticize none unless they involve or promote a violation of local, state, or federal law. Suspend judgment and choose curiosity when engaging in this group. bit.ly/TarynTalks-Support-All-Recovery-Pathways

TEND TO YOUR ENERGY

You are welcome to engage within this group in a way that feels comfortable and nourishing to you. We ask that the conversation be rooted in the themes of recovery and women’s wellness. You may not agree with everything that is shared in the group. We encourage you to choose curiosity over criticism, practice personal agency and take a “sacred pause” away from the computer if you feel reactive about a post or comment. You are your own authority and we encourage you to tend to your own energy. You are not required to read, watch, listen to, or engage with anything that makes you feel uncomfortable.

NO BLOCKS ON ADMINS OR GROUP MODERATORS

Our volunteers need to be able to see what people are posting at all times.

PAGES & JOINT / UNIDENTIFIABLE ACCOUNTS ARE NOT PERMITTED

Individual FB accounts newer than 3 months old that can confirm identity are required. Please contact an admin @ admin@sherecovers.org if your FB account is new or needs to remain anonymous for confidentiality or work-related purposes.

FB LIVES OR VIDEO

All live videos must be initiated from within the group and require approval. Please contact an Admin with your intention and wait for a response prior to starting or sharing a FB live. 

GROUP EVENTS

Only SHE RECOVERS team members and volunteers are permitted to create FB events within this group. Community members are not permitted to create events but may share information about a free event that they are not hosting (adhering to public health orders) within the discussion feed.

ASK YOUR QUESTIONS RELATED TO YOUR RECOVERY IN THE GROUP VS SENDING ADMINS DMS

We truly are stronger together. Your questions and experiences may be what another member is also experiencing or questioning. Utilizing this community helps everyone and gives our admins more time to engage with the whole. If you desire one-on-one support we strongly suggest working with a SHE RECOVERS® Coach. You may find our directory of coaches from all over the world here: https://sherecovers.org/coach-directory/

GROUP MEMBERSHIP IS SUBJECT TO ADHERENCE OF THESE GUIDELINES

Our admins reserve the right to remove posts and comments and temporarily or permanently ban anyone who does not contribute to creating a welcoming and supportive environment, disrupts the safety of the group, or doesn’t strictly adhere to these group guidelines. If your post or comment was removed it is because it didn’t follow our guidelines or was reported to an admin.

We are all responsible for co-creating a welcoming and supportive environment. If you ever feel like a post, comment, or member isn’t in alignment with the group guidelines, please report to an admin.
