Addiction: Understanding its stigma
In society, addiction is widely misunderstood. Fear of judgement, shame and discrimination is a major reason why many people with addictions hesitate to get treatment. The stigma associated with substance abuse can make it difficult to get the necessary help for recovery.
Renew Wellness & Recovery understands that overcoming an addiction is a brave step and not a sign weakness or moral failure. The center aims to foster an environment which challenges harmful stereotypes, and promotes empathy and understanding.
The Healing Haven
Renew’s philosophy is centered on creating a place where women feel safe and can heal, without being stigmatized. Women are treated with respect and compassion the minute they enter Renew. Staff is well-trained to recognize the complexity of addiction, as well as the many factors which contribute to its development, such trauma, mental illness, and personal circumstances.
The supportive atmosphere allows women to let go of the shame and guilt that are associated with addiction and concentrate on their journey towards recovery.
Promoting Open Dialogue
Renew Wellness & Recovery promotes an open, honest and transparent dialogue on addiction. Renew aims to normalize the conversation about addiction and recovery by creating an environment where women are free to share their stories and experiences.
The program empowers women to tell their own stories and give a voice to those who have been silenced due stigma. The dialogue reduces the stigma that is often associated with addiction, and reinforces that asking for help can be a sign that you are strong.
