On March 19, 22 women gathered in Ypsilanti, Michigan for a workshop called “Prayer – What is Your Path?” Cathy F. led the first part of the workshop, as we learned that different personality types prefer different ways to pray.

Ground Zero

I work on what is commonly called “methadone mile.” It’s also been referred to as “ground zero” for the opiate addiction in Boston. I’ve heard those who are commonly seen walking around the area referred to as “zombies” or the “walking dead,” and even worse, as I’m sure you can imagine.
There are two methadone clinics, two shelters, a detox, and we (PAATHS) are in the same building as the needle exchange, in the immediate area.

Let Us Entertain You 2015

On January 16, 2016, the Ann Arbor Women’s Group hosted the annual Movie and Ice Cream event “Let Us Entertain You”. This year, 22 women came for fun and fellowship, and of course, the ice cream! Registration was online and a suggested donation was all that was needed to enjoy quality time with other women in recovery. The women met up at the Coffee House Creamery and others provided rides from Maple Rock. This was a great way to get connected to women in the community and to have fun in sobriety. The movie was Joy with Jennifer Lawrence (trailer), the inspirational story of a woman entrepreneur who invented the Miracle Mop and the adversities she faced along the way and how she overcame them. Join us next year for more movies and ice cream. It is an experience you don’t want to miss!
