In this revised version of Helping Women Recover
, Dr. Covington addresses the special concerns and issues of women with substance use disorders who are in correctional settings. This innovative program integrates the theories of women's psychological development, trauma, and addiction treatment in an approach specifically designed to meet the needs of chemically dependent women in jails, prisons, drug courts, and community correctional settings.
The package of a facilitator guide and client journal provides counselors, mental health professionals, corrections staff, and program administrators the tools they need to implement a highly effective program with women's groups. Topics include self, relationships, sexuality, and spirituality, areas that women in treatment have identified as necessary for growth and healing or issues that trigger relapse. This flexible program stands nicely on its own or can be comfortably integrated with existing recovery programs.
