About The Voyage: Professional Women’s Podcast

Helping professional women find resources for addiction and mental health issues.

Women and Addiction

At least 31 women will lose their lives to opioids each day. According to the American Society of Addiction Medicine, “Women are more likely to have chronic pain, be prescribed prescription pain relievers, be given higher doses, and use them for longer time periods than men.” When it comes to alcohol, An estimated 5.3 million US women drink quantities of alcohol that put their health, safety, and general well-being at risk. Due to sexual assault and violence risks that accompany alcohol impairment in women as well as increased bodily damage even with less alcohol ingestion, it is fair to say that heavy drinking is more risky for women than men.

The Voyage Podcast
Working to shine the spotlight on the need for better treatment, better resources, better access to information and care for women, we have launched The Voyage Podcast. Our podcast is a women’s professionals centered podcast promoting female empowerment for women who have been impacted by addiction in some way.

Addiction is a disease that can affect not only the person struggling with substance abuse, but family and friends as well. It not only destroys bodies but also spirits, minds, inner-peace and self-confidence and relationships of all sorts. It can strip you of your job, friends, marriage, home and even hope. Our core mission of The Voyage podcast is to be an outlet and resource for women touched by addiction and recovery. Some of us are mothers, wives, and friends of alcoholics. Some of us are sober to manage our disease of addiction and others of us making a health conscious choice to abstain from all substances. The Voyage podcast is our voice.

Through our podcast, we are seeking to help build up women and be a consistent resource of information for those learning about overcoming addiction. Many are looking to rebuild their careers early in sobriety. For those women, we host guests that talk about how they got their start in certain fields and how they leveraged their sober community to assist.

Some women are mothers with children actively abusing drugs or alcohol. We have other mothers sharing their experiences and stories of not only how they themselves cope or find recovery, but how they turned a passion for sobriety and recovery into fulfilling careers or launching giving back efforts.

We are here not only to be an informational resource, but also a listening ear for those wanting to share their story. We are facilitating conversations to make recovery more open and accessible. We are working to eliminate the stigma and feelings of shame and embarrassment that coincide with mental health and addiction.
