From Trainspotting to Wolf of Wall Street, the downward spiral of addiction has been heavily depicted (often glorified) across film, writing, and music. What’s much less explored is recovery. What happens when a person chooses to get help rather than take another drink?
This year, Westover has introduced a program that helps self-identified women feel safe to be themselves while they learn about recovery and how to succeed in life.
Some people will be fortunate enough to never have to live through the reality of being an addict or know what it feels like to love an alcoholic, but that's a small number. Addiction is everywhere. The simple fact is that addiction is a disease that affects 1 in 5 Canadians.
