  • Username
  • Password
  • Timezone
  • Location (may be approximate - i.e. city & state)

After completing your registration, you will be sent an Email Verification message. Simply click on the link contained in the email to finalize your registration.

User Requirements

Access to this site is always free - we are entirely supported by the generosity of donations.

 

Consistent with WFS policy, the minimum requirements for membership on this site include:

  • 18 years of age or older
  • In, or seeking, recovery from a substance use disorder or problematic substance use
  • Identify as female, including women from the LGBT+ community and those with trans experiences

 

If you are a treatment provider, family member, or other party interested in learning more about the WFS New Life Program but you do not meet these requirements, we appreciate your interest! Please visit our informational website at https://womenforsobriety.org and email [email protected] with any questions.

Email Verification

Look for an email from Forum Management Team (WFS) with the subject line WFS Online - Email Verification. If you do not see the email in your regular inbox within 5-10 minutes, please double check your spam folder.

 

If you did not receive the Email Verification message, send your username and date of registration to [email protected] so that we can manually review your registration. Be sure to use the same email address that you used to register for the site.

 

If we find that your email address was entered incorrectly during the registration process, we will correct it in the system and resend the Email Verification message.

 

If your email address was entered correctly but you did not receive the Email Verification message, it is likely that your email service filtered out our message for some reason. We will manually approve your account, but please be aware that you are unlikely to receive any future emails through the WFS Online system in this case.

 

Please keep in mind that WFS operates with a limited number of paid staff and manual reviews and/or approvals can take up to 72 hours to process, possibly more during holiday and high traffic periods. We know that you are likely anxious to get into the site, so we thank you in advance for your understanding and patience.
