A Nun, Alcholoic Women, And Discovery

When a Sister of the Holy Cross began working with alcoholic women, she discovered these women's circumstances were different from those of alcoholic men. She formed a rehabilitation center for these women. That was in 1964.

Her original program is now the Women's Recovery Center that addresses
  • Co-occurring mental health disorders
  • Recovery from trauma and abuse
  • Emotional management and relapse prevention
  • Health and wellness
  • Relationships and building community
  • Increasing self-esteem and self-efficacy
  • Issues specific to young women, ages 18-24
