A 2017 study published in JAMA Psychiatry found that, on average, one in eight American adults suffers from Alcohol Use Disorder, more commonly known as alcoholism. The study found that Alcohol Use Disorder in women jumped from 4.9% in 2002 to 9.0% in 2013, an 83.7% increase over an eleven-year period.
This staggering data, combined with a growing DFW population, means that the estimated population of 251,364 alcoholic women located in the Dallas Fort Worth area1 alone is growing.
Alcoholism crosses all ethnicities and socioeconomic lines and is a chronic, progressive disease. We strongly believe that every alcoholic woman, regardless of her resources or circumstances, deserves the opportunity and has the right to recover from alcoholism.
The staff at Maggie’s works tirelessly to show women that are still suffering that there is hope. When women receive education on the disease of alcoholism and are equipped with a solution of recovery, it empowers them to take action to fight for their lives, while inspiring a big change in the entire community. We will not stop until every alcoholic woman who needs and wants to get sober has the opportunity to learn about the spiritual solution of recovery that has worked for millions around the world.
