We’re focused on helping clients start a new chapter and find a way to leave behind a legacy that doesn’t include substance abuse and addiction.

As part of Women’s History Month, Destination Hope: The Women’s Program is helping clients learn to rewrite their story through addiction treatment and recovery. The focus is on helping clients put their substance abuse and past addiction behind them to start a new chapter of sober living in recovery. Through treatment, women learn to address the underlying causes of their addiction, identify triggers and strengthen their relapse prevention plans.

“Addiction and drug abuse can have you staring in a story you don’t recognize,” said Destination Hope: The Women’s Program founder, Ben Brafman. “A large part of addiction treatment and drug rehab for women is helping clients identify new storylines for themselves.”

Every March the United States celebrates Women’s History Month, paying tribute to generations of women who have left a lasting legacy on our society. Destination Hope: The Women’s Program used the celebration as a catalyst for helping clients identify and work to rewrite their own stories and legacies.

“Although this is a national celebration, we saw an opportunity to help inspire and motivate our own clients at an individual level,” said Brafman. “We’re focused on helping clients start a new chapter and find a way to leave behind a legacy that doesn’t include substance abuse and addiction.”

As part of the celebration, addiction therapists and professionals at the drug rehab for women program identified three ways a woman in recovery from substance abuse and addiction can rewrite her story.

1. Believe in the ability to recover.
Coping with addiction may be long-term, but everyone has the opportunity to recover. No one is too far down the hole of addiction to seek help.

2. Help others.
Whether it is speaking out about her own experience with addiction to inspire others to seek treatment or to volunteer through a drug rehab for women outreach program, helping others builds self-worth, self-confidence and leavings a lasting impact on society.

3. Offer forgiveness and give back.
Drug rehab for women programs help clients to come to terms with the past and helps them build the tools necessary to have a healthy future. Forgiving past wrongs, whether done by others or the individual herself can give a woman her life back and the opportunity to write a new future.

“Women in recovery too often see their past as the definition of their future, but we’re able to celebrate the new story and new legacy they are building by celebrating Women’s History Month,” said Brafman.
