The Sanctuary is devoted to helping you make self-care happen. Our ever-growing collection includes comic relief, inspiring images, yoga and meditation videos, poetry, art and the list goes on…

Allies’ founder and director, Dominique Simon-Levine, responds to questions from our Content Editor about the Key Observation exercises in our eLearning Center.

Our members speak for themselves…
“The discussion blog is fantastic. Dominique’s and others’ detailed responses are very helpful to get perspective and specific approaches to the problems. Seeing how others are struggling breaks down some of the isolation that can come with addiction.”
“You provide very informative and positive feedback to everyone who reach out here. I consider myself to be a private person who does not easily confide. The opportunity for me to ask for help with my post hoping to get some support is a great relief. Thank you.”
