Counseling Addicted Women
A Practical Guide

  • Monique Cohen - CASPAR Program for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Rehabilitation

November 1999 | 264 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Do you work with addicted women? How can you help them to get sober and to lead healthier lives? What are the issues women face as they work through problems with substance abuse? How does motherhood influence the recovery process? To what extent do relationships support or undermine a woman's efforts to overcome alcoholism or other addiction?

This book answers these and other questions surrounding the effective treatment of women addicts. It offers hands-on practical guidance to counselors, nurses, social workers, and others who help women along the journey from substance abuse to healthy and fulfilling lives.
