Women Recover From Addiction
SHE RECOVERS® is an international movement of women (self-identified) in or seeking recovery from a wide variety of issues, including substance use disorders.
This week on Talk Recovery Radio we talk recovery with Dawn Nickel, a visionary in the recovery movement and over the past eight years has been working diligently to create social media spaces to support women who are in or seeking recovery.
Along with her daughter Taryn Strong (also in recovery) Dawn is the creator of SHE RECOVERS – currently the largest online platform dedicated to supporting women in recovery from addiction and related life challenges. Dawn started her own journey of recovery from a substance use disorder and mental health issues in 1987. She is a strong advocate for the view that every woman in or seeking recovery must be supported to find the tools and pathways that will work best for her as an individual.
In this engaging session, Dawn will describe the consumer-driven evolution and growth of SHE RECOVERS, an international movement of women that started out as a Facebook Page in the summer of 2011. Since that time, SHE RECOVERS has been creating welcoming spaces and transformative opportunities – on and offline – to connect, support and empower recovering women. As part of the presentation, Dawn will share the results of a cross-sectional survey designed with researchers at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine and administered to the SHE RECOVERS community in the fall of 2018. In that survey, respondents shared their views about how they believed that social media engagement had enhanced their recovery journeys.
