Hello everyone. My name is Julia Moore, and I am an addiction counselor. I have worked for a rehabilitation facility for several years, and in my time as a counselor, I have seen that recovery is a little different for women than it is for men. There seems to be an additional stigma against women who suffer from addiction or substance abuse issues. Although we have come a long way, there is still an attitude among some that while men are “allowed” to go to the bar and get drunk, the women should be at home.
It is because of this that I decided to start a blog specifically for women in recovery. I understand how hard it can be. While I, myself, have never been an addict or alcoholic, my older sister was, and she overdosed and passed on in 2013. I have devoted my life to helping other women in the situation she was in.
Have a look at the blog, and let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. Thanks for stopping by!
