What we're about
*Attending WFS meetings requires a sincere desire for a sober/abstinent “New Life" and no consumption of alcohol or non-prescription substances within 12 hours prior to the meeting.
Women for Sobriety (WFS) (https://womenforsobriety.org) is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to help all women find their individual path to recovery through discovery of self, gained by sharing experiences, hopes and encouragement with other women in similar circumstances. We are an abstinence-based self-help program for women facing issues of alcohol abuse or addiction. The “New Life” Program acknowledges the very special needs women have in recovery – the need to nurture feelings of self-value and self-worth and the desire to discard feelings of guilt, shame, and humiliation.
WFS is unique in that it is an organization of women for women. We are not affiliated with any other recovery organization and stand on our own principles and philosophies. We recognize each woman’s necessity for self-discovery. WFS offers a variety of recovery tools to guide a woman in developing coping skills which focus on emotional growth, spiritual growth, self-esteem, and a healthy lifestyle. Our vision is to encourage all women in developing personal growth and continued abstinence (sobriety) through the “New Life” Program. WFS members live by the philosophy: “Release the past. Plan for tomorrow. Live for today.”
