Addiction recovery is often seen through the lens of Alcoholics Anonymous, an organization established in the early 1900’s. Now, almost 100 years later, it is long due for us to reexamine addiction as women and how we can reclaim our lives. In this episode, Holly Whitaker shares her insights and thoughts on a different way that we can look at addiction and recovery with the needs of women in mind.
