The Step-by-Step Guide to a Powerful Process for Healing Women with Substance Abuse

Since it was first published in 1999, Helping Women Recover has set the standard for best practice in the field of women and addiction. Helping Women Recover is based on Dr. Covington's Women's Integrated Treatment (WIT) model. It offers a program specifically designed to meet the unique needs of women in correctional settings who are addicted to alcohol and other drugs or have co-occurring disorders. This thoroughly revised and updated edition includes evidence-based and empirically tested therapeutic interventions that are used to treat substance abuse and trauma in an innovative way. The Helping Women Recover program offers counselors, mental health professionals, and program administrators the tools they need to implement a gender-responsive, trauma-informed treatment program within the criminal justice system.
