Women In Recovery Association was registered as a society in 2006 during the height of the subutex problem when a group of recovering women and individuals were concerned about the injuries and deaths as a result of the abuse of subutex among drug addicts while trying to curb their cravings for illegal drugs.
In March 2015, WIRA became a registered charity offering services to all women regardless of ethnicity or religion.
- To help recovering female drug ex-offenders rehabilitate and reintegrate into the society.
- To provide support to them and their families through alternative educational and training assistance.
- To impart educational and life skills such as family life education, good parenting, vocational skills training, including for their children.
- To grow an alumni of WIRA ‘graduates’ able to provide support and inspiration to each other as well as other recovering women.
