SHE RECOVERS® Foundation & Aware Recovery Care Present


This is OUR Movement. This is OUR Cause.

Are you curious about how we can help women incorporate different patchworks into their recovery?

Join us for this free CEU event on July 19, 2023

9:00 AM – 11:00 AM PT / 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM ET

During this pre-recorded session we will learn from Sarah Benton, LMHC, LPC, AADC , Aware Recovery Care, and Dawn Nickel, PhD, Co-Founder, SHE RECOVERS Foundation:

How and to what degree individuals have accessed recovery from Substance Use Disorders (SUD) and related mental health challenges has changed significantly over the past several decades. Whereas in the past, there was generally one pathway recommended for individuals to follow, in this 21st century the concept of a recovery patchwork is gaining attention and traction.

Importantly, the pandemic increased innovation in the self-help and treatment space and opened new options and ways to engage in them. There has also been a movement towards a more fluid and adaptive approach to recovery that leads to a more holistic patchwork of non-linear layers and choices. It is important for clinicians to feel comfortable supporting clients in more individualized recovery plans that could include shifting, adding, or changing self-help groups and clinical resources to adapt to their evolving recovery lifestyle needs. This presentation will provide a case example along with other strategies to best support our client’s recovery from dual diagnosis.

Learning Objectives:

  • Hear a case example of an individual moving from a recovery pathway to patchwork.
  • Explore and describe how current mutual help and peer-led recovery programs can help (or hinder) women in or seeking recovery.
  • Learn what individualized recovery patchworks may look like for clients versus a narrow recovery pathway.
  • Learn strategies for helping clients to navigate and explore their personal recovery patchwork.

Q & A session with Dr. Dawn Nickel & Sarah Benton following the presentation recording.
