ABOUT US

Recovery Girls Rock (RGR) is a network of women from various walks of life who are recovering from abuse, loss, addiction, sex trafficking etc. We believe in a four-fold process of Identification, advocacy, education, and healing !!  Our mission is to end and treat the negative lifestyle patterns, which have sought to destroy us mentally, spiritually and physically.  We recover out loud – so our sisters don't die in silence.

 

If you've suffered abuse, battled mental health issues, have low self-esteem or have lost loved ones, we are here to help.  RGR is an open and positive platform designed to remove the negative stigma associated with such challenges.  Those of us who have been battered, experienced divorced or have carried the weight of depression on various levels understand that coming out of the shadows is no walk in the park. It requires not only willingness but a strength and determination to heal and to keep going even when life hurts. 

 

Society has a tendency to set unrealistic expectations of how a woman is supposed to act and behave. There is no shame in being who you are, wherever you are, in this moment. We can recover from any and everything for ourselves, but we don't have to do it by ourselves. 

 

The sun is shining, and it's okay to have hope again. You are loved. You matter. And most of all, you are needed. 

“ Surrender to win!”

 

Surrender to feeling lost. Surrender to not knowing what to do. Surrender to not being able to change things by yourself.

Surrender, surrender, surrender –

“We got you girl!”
