Wellness Advocate Volunteers in Her Community to Help Women with Addiction

Patti Stevens was introduced to doTERRA roughly four years ago by one of her Pilates clients. At the time, Patti enjoyed mentoring people on healthy living with herbs and oils. Her passion for helping people to live healthy lifestyles made her a perfect fit for doTERRA, but she didn’t stop there.

A few years ago, Patti became certified in Qigong—a type of standing meditation similar to Tai Chi, combining deep breathing with movement to send healing energy through the body. Upon becoming certified, she felt motivated to share this technique with others. After some research, she found the WestCare Foundation facility in Las Vegas to be the best place to volunteer and share her talents. She now volunteers at the Women’s Campus, teaching Qigong classes.

Though this is not a detox facility, Patti has been able to help women improve their health, find focus, and re-center their lives. The majority of the women at the facility are low income and struggle to find work or housing due to addictions or abuse. The aim of this program is to help women become independent and overcome their addictions, while building self-esteem. One in three adults who struggle with alcohol or drug abuse also suffers from depression.1 While women can admit themselves to the facility, the majority are court appointed.
