Daughters of Deborah Celebrate Freedom from Addiction

Great story from the Ledger about a rehabilitation program in Newark that focuses on women: Women celebrate rehab and rebirth with a gala event in Newark.

The 17 women, all recovering drug addicts, walked into a crowded ballroom in the city tonight as if dressed for a wedding, from the orchid corsages on their wrists to their elegant gowns.

But they were not getting married. The women were at the Robert Treat Hotel celebrating the milestone of being the first graduating class from Daughters of Deborah, a special workshop program on jobs, personal finance, legal issues, entrepreneurship, health, confidence, manners and communications, according to organizers.
