The Achilles heel for many women in or seeking recovery is tied to unhealthy and toxic relationships, from family of origin to adult romances. This presentation will use powerful keys from family systems theory to provide practical tools for getting free from limiting beliefs that fuel negative relational cycles during the recovery process. In addition,  we’ll discuss the extraordinary trends from the last seven years that have been birthed by women grappling with their own or a loved one’s alcohol or substance use disorder.


Jean LaCour, PhD, CPP, CPC, CPRC, is an innovator and global consultant who has personally trained in 35 nations. As a tireless advocate for people in recovery and those working in the addiction field worldwide, she has inspired innovation in Egypt, Russia, Bermuda, and other countries. Being committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion in addiction services, she co-founded a global coalition of 1,000+ people in 100+ nations. She has served on addiction-related workgroups for the United Nations, U.S. State Department, SAMHSA’s Partners for Recovery, the Access to Recovery initiative (ATR), ATTC, and many national and state organizations. In 2014, LaCour created the International Association for Professional Recovery Coaches (IAPRC) to deliver career training and certification for groundbreaking specialty in addiction recovery for wellness, life, and business coaches. In response to the addiction pandemic within the Coronavirus pandemic, LaCour co-created “ICARE Workforce Solutions” to disseminate an engaging adult prevention program in addiction awareness that meets CDC best practices. Trained facilitators work with businesses to address substance misuse, stress, and poor coping among their employees by creating psychological safety through experiential and confidential processes.
