Philosophy of M.O.M. Support Group

  • Women are viewed as experts in their own lives
  • Recovery includes acceptance of and responsibility for substance abuse.
  • Women must learn to be activists in their own lives and communities by practicing appropriate life skills.
  • Women can develop healthy support systems and trusting relationships with other women.
  • A crucial aspect of recovery is learning to have fun.


  • Provide a non-judgmental support group that gives women an opportunity to share experiences and learn, with a focus on how they can be role models for the children in their lives.
  • Empower women through educational presentations, open discussions, and activism.
  • Provide Information and referrals to other helping agencies (therapy, treatment, AA/NA, housing, etc)l
  • Focus on how women can overcome common barriers faced in the DHS, Juvenile Court and other systems, as opposed to getting “stuck” in the problem.
    Identify state and local resources that can provide programs for skill development in the following areas:

    • Communication skills between the parent and child
    • How recovery impacts the parent/child relationship
    • How to nurture a child’s moral and spiritual development
    • Communication skills with the child’s father or significant caretaker
    • Discuss women’s issues as they relate to substance abuse (guilt and shame over the past, child abuse history, violent/abusive relationships, housing, transportation, children’s issues, etc) and how they relate to active addiction.

Moms Off Meth is a grassroots, self-empowerment support group for women to find solutions to their living problems. Participants become active agents in successfully re-shaping their lives, relationships and communities.
