Women and Addiction A Gender Responsive Approach Curriculum with DVD


Women’s treatment involves more than simply providing women-only group settings. Program content, staff selection, and even site selection are all components of an environment in which gender-responsive treatment thrives. In this program, Stephanie S. Covington presents how to create effective recovery services for women and girls–services that reflect an understanding of the realities of their lives and address their unique challenges and strengths. Dr. Covington’s comprehensive, integrated approach is based on years of theory, research, and clinical experience.
