Jana Heckerman writes about the four phases of relapse prevention for women in this insightful article:
What makes a woman who has been sober for a year, five years, or twenty years start drinking again? The answer to that question is unique to every woman, but one overriding factor I see in recovery circles – and in my coaching practice – is an inability to cope with significant life changes. Since life changes and challenges are pretty much guaranteed, sober women must learn to anticipate and manage the various phases and chapters that their lives will predictably cycle through.

“Thanks again for being there for us and guiding us through some rough waters. Your kindness and genuine concern deeply touched my soul and we are all grateful our paths crossed when they did. You are a truly gifted professional, keep on doing what you do so well.”
“I just want to thank Hired Power for the PRA. He was a perfect match and I can’t say enough…. He was intensely committed. This is the first time I have been clean in over 30 years. Thank you again.”
“I don’t look at you (Hired Power) as hiring a service, I look at you as saving my life.” (referring to his ability to stay sober after returning home).
