Aware Recovery Care is pleased to announce it is a Trusted Resource and the Presenting Sponsor of SHE RECOVERS in CHICAGO from September 29 to October 1, 2023. The event is a three-day experience for women in or seeking recovery from life challenges, including substance use, grief and loss, eating disorders, burnout, and moral injury, chronic pain, love addiction, mental health issues such as anxiety and depression, and other obstacles often associated with trauma.
Aware Recovery Care provides a full continuum of home-based care, including in-home withdrawal management (in-home detox), medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and management, individual therapy, family therapy, and coordinated medical and behavioral healthcare. By transforming the home into the treatment setting, Aware helps people recover safely and discreetly in their own environment, without disrupting work or school. The Aware treatment process allows individuals to recover from addiction while getting the right amount of healthcare - all in the safety and comfort of their homes. Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield found that 78% of people who complete Aware’s in-home treatment remain drug and alcohol-free a year after treatment.
“We are absolutely thrilled to partner with Aware Recovery Care as we work together to provide a continuum of accessible, individualized, responsive, and evidence-based recovery solutions for women. We are grateful to be aligned with an organization that truly believes in a client-centered approach to treatment and meeting people where they are,” said SHE RECOVERS Executive Director Susan Carter. “We believe the in-home recovery treatment programming provided by Aware is unparalleled in their ability to provide holistic support that empowers recovering women to receive treatment in a way that best suits their lifestyle, needs, and respective recovery pathways and patchworks.”
“We are honored to be named a SHE RECOVERS Trusted Resource and so excited to be a presenting sponsor,” said Martha Mather, Chief Operating Officer of Aware Recovery Care. “It is crucial that women who are struggling with addiction have innovative, evidence-based treatment options available to them. A supportive community is equally important, and SHE RECOVERS reminds women in recovery that they are not alone, which is so powerful.”
SHE RECOVERS in Chicago is an innovative three-day experience inspired by the nonprofit’s past conferences: SHE RECOVERS in NYC, SHE RECOVERS in LA, and SHE RECOVERS in MIAMI. SHE RECOVERS in CHICAGO will highlight and celebrate strength, diversity, inclusion, and innovation…by women for women and non-binary individuals who identify with women’s communities.
Event headliners include Elizabeth Gilbert, the best-selling author of Eat, Pray, Love, and Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear, and Valarie Kaur, civil rights leader, lawyer, award-winning filmmaker, and best-selling author of See No Stranger: A Memoir & Manifesto of Revolutionary Love.
This year’s theme is Our Stories, Our Strength, with “story-related” programming weaved throughout the conference, including story-telling training and story showcases highlighting different forms of creative self-expression such as spoken word, embodied movement, music, and art.
