As the co-founder of Avalon Recovery Society, Helen Burnham knows all too well the unique challenges women face when battling drug and alcohol addiction. In 1990, Helen and her co-founder opened the first Avalon Women’s Centre in Vancouver. For over 30 years, It continues to be a warm, inviting space for women to share their stories, free of judgment, and with others who had been there before.

Brooke is the co-host of Seek Purpose Now Podcast, a sober content creator who designs at Sober Lifestyle clothing, a published author, and a mom of three that is in recovery. She shares her story of recovery and how she tragically lost her brother to an overdose earlier this year.




Rosemary Keevil has been a TV news reporter, a current affairs radio show host, managing editor of a professional women’s magazine, and the author of The Art of Losing it. She has a master’s degree in journalism and is currently a journalist covering addiction and recovery. Rosemary has been clean and sober since 2002.
