These groups allow our female patients to attend clinical activities which address major issues and the special needs of chemically dependent women, providing education, and peer interaction/discussion. These groups provide a safe forum for women to explore and gain insight into the impact these issues have had on their disease and recovery process and assist women in familiarizing themselves with resources available to address issues as part of continuing care.
