Many writers’ lives are threatened by the inability to quit alcoholic drinking, serious substance abuse, and process addictions. Too often writers and poets working alone at home, in a publisher’s cubicle, or in cabin retreat succumb to the deadly combination of isolation and addiction.
Writers In Treatment helps men and women in the writing industry suffering from alcoholism, drug addiction, and other self-destructive behaviors get treatment for their disease. We produce free educational and cultural events that celebrate sobriety while reducing the stigma of addiction.
Rebuilding one’s life need not be a solitary effort. Our vision is to provide the treatment and support individuals need to take their first step toward recovery.
We believe it’s important for people in recovery (and for those on the cusp of recovery) to have entertaining and culturally stimulating events that inspire enthusiasm for living clean and sober.
