Women are confronted with unique challenges regarding mental health, addiction and stigmas that often act as a barrier to receiving the treatment and help they need.
While there are many unique addiction and mental health resources available for women, none of them are comprehensive and specifically tailored to addiction among women. After research across the resources available on the web, the AAC team noticed the absence of a centralized resource designed to help understand the basics of mental health, alcohol use and addiction within this demographic and offer guidance on navigating support systems. They decided to fill this gap of knowledge.
Expectant parents are usually hesitant to take the necessary measures to make their home baby-proof thinking they can always buy more time once the baby is finally home. What parents don’t seem to realize is that a baby only needs 8 months to be able to crawl and explore the world one reach, at a time.
With up to half of marriages in the U.S. ending in divorce – and rates of divorce higher for subsequent marriages – many children face challenges from their parents’ split that can follow them for a lifetime, including into their own relationships as adults.

Our Twelve Step program Recovery Guides are alcoholics and addicts with quality sobriety. Our Recovery Guides have themselves experienced the nightmare of addiction and the miracle of recovery. Thanks to their own personal histories, these uniquely qualified men have the ability to share their experience, strength, and hope with our guests in an intensely personal, highly effective manner. At Discovery Place, guests enjoy far more one-on-one attention from Recovery Guides than they would otherwise receive in larger, more conventional treatment centers. There is at least one Recovery Guide for every six men. When it comes to learning and adopting the fundamentals of recovery, it's quite clear that smaller groups are more effective than larger ones. In part at least, our Recovery Guides help produce such positive results because they have the time to provide each guest with the individual attention he deserves.
To contact one of our Recovery Guides directly, see the staff page or call Discovery Place at 1.800.725.0922.
In summertime, there’s more barbecues, pool parties and trips to the beach, more outings to night spots and theme parks. There’ll be more coolers filled with beer and quiet moments on the beach or in parks when a private toke might go unnoticed. While this is a great time to enjoy the company of your friends and family, some people who have been trying to stay clean and sober may find too many opportunities to relapse. It may take a little more work than usual to maintain sobriety when presented with temptation every time you turn around.

They recognize that a great deal of responsibility comes with bringing a child into this world and typically believe that every choice they make from the moment of conception onwards is going to play a role in how their child turns out.
