Services Offered

Sophia offers something for every woman seeking recovery.

Our menu of services includes choices ranging from one-on-one mentoring, formal recovery group programs and opportunities to heal alongside other women by joining informal group activities.

Programs are facilitated by professional therapists and peer specialists - women who are in recovery themselves.

All programs are free of charge.
