Women who could benefit from third stage recovery are often combating barriers to a healthy and sober life from multiple overlapping areas including:

Housing, addiction, legal, financial, family, physical/mental health, trauma, under or unemployment.


All of which must be dealt with in a holistic manner with each approach complementing the other and acting to reinforce supports in other areas.


Currently there does not exist a service for women on the Island with this breadth and depth of support, facilitated by a female registered nurse in recovery.
