She Recovers at Kripalu Expand Your Recovery Bubble

She Recovers, an international movement of women in or seeking recovery from substance use disorders and addictions, trauma, codependency, loss, and other life challenges, creates welcoming (sober) spaces and transformative opportunities for women to connect, support, and empower each other.

Are you curious about sobriety, new to recovery, or even a woman in recovery from something other than a substance use disorder? Join Jean McCarthy, Payton Kennedy, and other women eager to explore, share, and celebrate the many different pathways and patchworks of recovery. Jean—who has been sober since 2011—is a leader in the She Recovers and recovery advocacy movements. Payton, director of retreats for She Recovers, has been sober since 2014 and is an integral player in holding sacred space for She Recovers events.
