Transformation In Early RecoveryWe know that key concerns for women in early recovery include relationships, self-care and developing a safe community of support for networking and recovery. Women have individual needs, and their work in treatment at Pavillon reflects that specialization. We use experiential therapy, family sculpting, yoga and Tai Chi, exercise and weekly outings to help women regain themselves and heal. The work on women's issues centers around topics such as empowerment, boundaries, codependency and relationship issues, shame, and grief. Natural and healthy coping skills are emphasized - skills that can also be used universally with or without others.
Relationships are vital to women and are crucial for women in early recovery. At Pavillon, women gain an understanding of relationship dynamics, family systems, and how to transform both self and their family systems. We treat the whole person, focusing on the unique biopsychosocial needs of each woman. The whole person is involved in treatment, and the whole person enters recovery. We want this process to involve a transformation in the woman's relationships. This process allows the entire social support system to enter into recovery.
