Praise for Helping Women Recover

"Helping Women Recover provides an integrated and holistic approach to woman-centered substance abuse treatment that incorporates findings from treatment research as well as clinical insight derived from years of dedication to helping women recover from addiction. Treatment staff and participants alike will find it to be accessible, affirming, inspiring, and, quite possibly, life saving."
—Christine Grella, PhD, research psychologist, UCLA Integrated Substance Abuse Programs

"In this edition, Dr. Covington provides us with updated research and theory as the framework for this easy-to-use, comprehensive, and trauma-informed treatment program. The detailed exercises cover a broad range of issues related to women's recovery. Her knowledge and understanding of women are reflected in every page."
—Lisa M. Najavits, PhD, professor of psychiatry, Boston University School of Medicine; lecturer, Harvard Medical School; clinical psychologist, National Center for PTSD, VA Boston; psychologist, McLean Hospital

"A comprehensive, practical, extraordinarily valuable guide for anyone involved in creating, implementing, or facilitating women's treatment programs."
—Jan Surrey, founding scholar, Jean Baker Miller Training Institute, Stone Center, Wellesley College

"In this new edition of Helping Women Recover, Stephanie Covington once again sets the standard for women-centered treatment. By detailing the historical, social, and empirical context for this approach, Dr. Covington provides the practitioner with a deeper understanding of the program and its real-world implementation. Helping Women Recover remains the best practice for treating women and their substance abuse problems."
—Barbara Owen, PhD, professor, Department of Criminology, California State University–Fresno

"Powerful, comprehensive, and grounded in years of experience and wisdom. Stephanie Covington brings a holistic, in-depth understanding of the complex social and gender issues that need to be understood by every professional who works with women, trauma, and addiction. She points the way to dramatic shifts that need to be made in order to help women recover from addictions. It is a wake-up call that's right on the mark!"
—Charlotte Sophia Kasl, PhD; author, Women, Sex, and Addiction; Many Roads, One Journey: Moving Beyond the Twelve Steps; and If the Buddha Dated
