Kevin Burke addressed a private gathering of 30 New Jersey certified addiction specialists on the psychological challenges women and men can suffer after abortion. He offered an introduction to the recovery process in Rachel’s Vineyard. They shared how many of their clients have experienced this loss and how their complicated grief can play a significant role in their addiction struggle. Many of the participants expressed appreciation at the insight and understanding they now have of the issues their clients face and the benefits of recovery programs for abortion loss. One therapist serves clients in the female prison system and shared how many of the women were wounded by their abortions. We will stay in touch to explore ways to bring healing into the prisons.
