Connecting Women in Recovery

The Ann Arbor Women’s Group strengthens women’s sobriety through fun and informative events, workshops and retreats. We help women in recovery connect with other recovering women in Washtenaw County, Michigan. We are not a rehab, detox or transitional housing organization. A2WG is unique in our mission.
