The Top 10 Health Risks of Alcohol for Women, According to an MD
In medical school, I never learned about the specific harms of alcohol to women. Some of them we didn’t yet know, like the greater risk of breast cancer even at 3 servings per week. Some of them took years and better technology to identify, like the role of alcohol as a gut and brain toxin. Some of them we still don’t know because  research on women and alcohol  is sadly lacking.

Doomscrolling, Defined.
Doomscrolling and doomsurfing are new terms referring to the tendency to continue to surf or scroll through bad news, even though that news is saddening, disheartening, or depressing. Many people are finding themselves reading continuously bad news about COVID-19 without the ability to stop or step back.

Springs Recovery Connection Impact
I am writing you regarding Sparkle my recovery coach. SRC has been so beneficial in my life along with my recovery coach she's always there for me even went to court with me wrote letters to DHS for me she's an amazing support.
I feel like SRC helps me a lot more than I ever did because of the individual one on one time that my coach and her quotes she sent me every morning.
Without SRC I don't think I'd be this far along in my recovery and able to be living out of sober living I appreciate them to the fullest. - H.

Recovery Hero: Trish McPeek
Hello, I'm Trish McPeek. I've been in recovery for 2 years and 8 months.
Prior to my recovery, I was withdrawn from every aspect of my life. Alcohol consumed me. Towards the end of my drinking career, I was not a pleasant person to be around even when I wasn't drinking. I discovered alcohol wasn't the only reason for this.
