We're pleased to announce that HERS @ ASC (Honoring Everywoman's Right to Safety) was recently spotlighted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA) as a national model of women's peer education programming. HERS @ ASC promotes women's long-term recovery from substance abuse using peer services that address the unique challenges women face in initiating and maintaining recovery.

The program was highlighted during SAMHSA's Annual Conference for Recovery Community Support Programs, held in Alexandria, Virginia in August. Members of the HERS @ ASC team facilitated conference workshops on peer leadership, gender-specific recovery service delivery, and the impact of childhood trauma on patterns of risk behavior in adulthood.
