Reaching out when you feel lost, scared, alone or out of control is the best thing you can do, and your first step down your own road to recovery. Here is a list of resources to get you started, a list that I hope evolves greatly as we go.

    Hello RM,

    Thank you for sharing your story. I look forward to reading more about your journey through recovery.

    I am the Executive Director and Founder of Life Restored, Inc. I am currently designing a parenting curriculum for specifically for women who are in recovery and/or returning to the community after incarceration. I came across your blog as I was trying to get more insight on the needs of women who would benefit from such a program. In my city (Cleveland, OH) the majority of the parenting classes are geared toward men. I wanted to provide the women with something a little more catered to their needs as a woman and mother. I’m trying to think of a name for the program and just some key points that tend to be overlooked in other programs.

    Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome. Feel free to email me if you can think of anything that would be helpful for us.

    Kind regards, Deirdre

      Hi Deirdre, thanks so much for your interest. I went through a lot of names before deciding on Recovering Motherhood :) But I will see what I can come up with. In the meantime I hope to have a LOT more posts up. Thanks so much for reading!
