  • Laurie Schneider, Women for Sobriety

Women for Sobriety (WFS) is a non-profit charitable organization with an abstinence-based, self-help recovery program for women struggling with alcohol and drug addictions. WFS has been providing services for 40 years to women who wish to pursue a positive, long lasting recovery.  Women’s needs require different treatment approaches from those used with men.  Whether stand alone, or used in tandem with other programs, we feel each woman should have opportunities and choices available to them to decide which recovery approach works best for them and we encourage women to pursue what works.  The Women for Sobriety “New Life” Program shows women how to be empowered to handle all situations in life without resorting to alcohol or drugs to cope.  Our 13 Statements shows each woman how she can tap into her inner strength and how to celebrate her recovery with positive new thoughts, living spirit and enthusiasm, forgiving and releasing her past and moving forward to a new life …free from addictions.
