Many writers' lives are threatened by the inability to quit alcoholic drinking and serious substance abuse. Too often writers and poets working alone at home, a publisher's cubicle or cabin retreat succumb to the deadly combination of isolation and addiction.
Rebuilding one's life need not be a solitary effort. Our mission is to provide the treatment and support a writer needs to begin their first step towards recovery.
Research validates the effectiveness of residential treatment as an appropriate intervention for men and women with addiction histories. The better the treatment, the better the chances for maintaining a lasting recovery.
Writers In Treatment has partnered with top tier rehabilitation facilities such as the Betty Ford Center, Hazelden, Caron Treatment Centers and others to provide the highest quality care available. Few writers have health insurance
W.I.T. underwrites the cost of residential therapy for up to 60 days.
W.I.T. also facilitates continuing after-care, therapy, 12-step programs, relapse prevention awareness and monthly alumni meeting
