Being in a woman’s only treatment center has really made my connection to my womanhood and girl power stronger. Being alongside women who have conquered death essentially and have also been given a chance to fight for their lives has been such an empowering experience. Women are bad ass! Sometimes it is a challenge, when you put 20 girls into a confined space, but it really gives you a chance to embrace all it means to be a woman and a woman in recovery!

Men were a great distraction for me – so when my mom told me in the car that I was on my way to an all women’s treatment center I was not very happy about it. When I first arrived I was not very comfortable with being around so much feminine energy, but now that I’ve been here for a couple of months – I can honestly say it is the best thing that’s ever happened for me. I’ve been given the opportunity to really heal in an environment that allows it. I have been to other co-ed centers and I didn’t get half the amount focus on my inner issues as I am here. I’m becoming an empowering woman who holds herself with grace… and I never knew that person was inside me all along.

Canyon Crossing has done miracles in my life. When I first heard that Canyon was only women – I was not a fan. “I don’t get along with girls that well,” was the first and only thing I said for a little. After getting here and meeting all the girls I was still a little weary about it. As time went on I learned to tolerate it, then like it, then absolutely love and appreciate all the women here. They have been through all the laughs, smiles, tears, breakdowns, and even the snotty cries. I actually trust these women. Being in an all women’s treatment center has been the best choice for me. I have been in co-ed treatment centers before and I just wasn’t comfortable letting all my emotions out in front of males and females in a mixed setting. Being here also teaches that we as women don’t need men all the time. I love these women and I know they love me too. These women will always have my back and I will always have theirs. Canyon Crossing is full of women with integrity and grace, will help pick you up when you fall, and will love you till the end. Lets just say that I am more than happy with the decision that I made to come to an all women’s treatment center.

I have enjoyed being in an all women’s program because I have learned how much I have in common with every women I meet. I have learned to focus on our similarities and not our differences. I have learned how to have safe and loving relationships with women when in the past I have been afraid to start relationships with women. The benefits of this program are learning that women are kind, safe, and loving.
