At Empower!, We believe that women best heal from mental health, relationship, or substance dependency in an honest, supportive, caring group that supports their health and well-being. Our program work is designed to encourage empowering relationships with other women to help build a strong social support network while learning and demonstrating the skills needed to live the best lives possible. The program addresses low self-esteem, shame, fear, trust issues, trauma, and depression as well as addictive disorders. When trauma, fears, and other psychological barriers inhibit women from connecting with others in a healthy way, sobriety and healthy living become even more challenging to achieve. However, when women learn to trust one another and build a loving and supportive community, that community can form a strong base for individual healing and recovery. This is the first step in a journey of recovery from mental health or substance abuse issues. Women are part of a powerful community that addresses the issues impacting them, identify what needs to change and how to grow, and then practicing and learning to live in a more deliberate and effective way.
