Overview

"Where was this book when my mother needed it? Women and Recovery is a wonderful and very comforting resource for women and family members. I really enjoyed it."

?Susan Ford Bales, daughter of Betty Ford

"Women and Recovery is a must-read. Dr. Harris gets it one-size-fits-all has never fit women. Her page-turning stories of binge-drinking girls, social-drinking moms, and others illustrate the many ways women slip into alcoholism. With her unique coping skills, Dr. Harris offers a lifesaving ring of hope to women and their loved ones."

?Karen Tandy, former administrator, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration

"For years, there has been an alarming lack of resources specifically for women with alcohol problems. This book fills that void by intelligently combining forthright personal accounts of alcoholism with treatment and recovery science. The result is a compelling, engaging, and, above all, useful book that will open the door to a better life for countless women."

?John F. Kelly, Ph.D., Director, Addiction Recovery Management Service, Massachusetts General Hospital

Millions of women drink too much, and their drinking is destroying their lives. Now Dr. Kitty Harris, one of America's foremost recovery counselors and herself a recovering alcoholic with more than thirty years of sobriety, presents a new recovery plan for women that focuses on treating the pain, not reinforcing the shame. Dr. Harris's program can be used successfully in tandem with any 12-step or other recovery program. In this unique and easy-to-understand guide, Dr. Harris identifies the five types of pain associated with alcoholism in women and discusses how to deal with each of them. She shares the stories of recovering women of all types, from binge-drinking young people to closet alcoholics, and includes the personal story of her own alcoholism and recovery.
