Mission

Women for Sobriety is an organization whose purpose is to help all women find their individual path to recovery through discovery of self, gained by sharing experiences, hopes and encouragement with other women in similar circumstances. We are an abstinence-based self-help program for women facing issues of alcohol or drug addiction. Our New Life Program acknowledges the very special needs women have in recovery - the need to nurture feelings of self-value and self-worth and the desire to discard feelings of guilt, shame, and humiliation. Mission Statement: Through the New Life Program, Women for Sobriety supports women seeking a sober life in recovery from problematic substance use.

New Life Program

Founded by a sociologist who related over-reliance on substances to the loss of identity many women feel when trying to fulfill competing roles in modern society, Women for Sobriety (WFS) believes that guilt, depression, and low (or no) self-esteem are common problems women experience for which substances have become the primary coping mechanism.

To overcome substance use disorders (SUDs), women must address their real needs – those for an increased sense of self-value, self-worth, and self-efficacy. The WFS New Life Program is specifically designed to fit these emotional needs of women. It shows women how to overcome their problematic substance use with supportive group interactions. Women learn how to identify and address the problems which caused and were caused by their use, as well as new ways of approaching and solving problems. Together, women learn how to live individually; they learn awareness of self and fulfillment of self.
