The latest, fully-revised and updated edition of classic and best-selling work in the field
Since it was first published in 1999, Helping Women Recover has set the standard for best practice in the field of women's treatment. Helping Women Recover is a manualized treatment intervention based on Dr. Covington's Women's Integrated Treatment (WIT) model-offering a program developed to meet the unique needs of women addicted to alcohol, other drugs, and those with co-occurring disorders. Included in SAMHSA's National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices, The Helping Women Recover program offers counselors, mental health professionals, and program administrators the tools they need to implement a gender-responsive, trauma-informed treatment program in group settings or with individual clients.
Now in its third edition, this binder set including both a facilitator's guide and a hands on participant's journal, has been updated with new material on opioid addictions, how to become trauma-informed and gender-responsive, LGBTQ issues, and more. The detailed chapter for the facilitator on how to use the program, updated references, and further reading suggestions help practitioners effectively implement the program in daily practice. A vital tool for all mental health and addiction treatment professionals, Helping Women Recover:
* Draws from the most up-to-date theory and practical applications in the fields of addiction and trauma
* Covers the historical background and fundamental principles of gender-responsive services
* Provides guidance for facilitating an effective woman's treatment program
* Offers real-world insights on the role of the facilitator
* Includes an appendix of additional recovery resources such as The Sixteen Steps for Discovery & Empowerment and Women for Sobriety New Life Program Acceptance Statements
Helping Women Recover is essential for mental health and addiction treatment professionals including counselors, therapists, social workers, psychologists, and psychiatrists who work with women in hospitals, addiction treatment programs, community mental health centers, and individual practices.
"Since its first publication in 1998, Stephanie Covington's Helping Women Recovery has been an invaluable resource in the treatment of women recovering from addiction and trauma. The 2019 update will find appreciative audiences across a broad spectrum of addiction treatment and recovery support arenas. There exists no other resource combining historical insight, rigorous scientific research, clinical treatment, and the lived experiences of women in recovery. This revised edition is filled with step-by-step facilitator instructions, scripts, materials, and delivery tips. Helping Women Recovery is a landmark work that will leave a lasting legacy of transformed lives."

"How lucky we are that Stephanie Covington is continuing and updating her pioneering work on women and addiction. A leader in the field for decades, she is a national treasure."
-Jean Kilbourne, Ed.D., Media Critic, Pioneering Activist, Author
"Helping Women Recover by Dr. Stephanie Covington is another major contribution to the field of women's addiction treatment. The first part of the book contains vital knowledge for any clinician who works with women. She puts the history of women's treatment into perspective and then provides information that clearly differentiates the differences between substance abuse treatment of women and of men. The experience and wisdom embedded in this text is long overdue."
-Sandra L. Bloom, M.D., Associate Professor, Dornsife School of Public Health, Drexel University
"Helping Women Recover is vital to our work with the chemically dependent female - and there is no one who understands gender-specific work better than Stephanie Covington!"
-Claudia Black, Ph.D., Addiction Specialist and Author of Unspoken Legacy: Addressing the Impact of Trauma and Addiction Within the Family
"With the debut of Helping Women Recover: A Program for Treating Addiction, Stephanie Covington demonstrated her innovative style in an evidence-based program by integrating theories of the psychology of women, trauma, and addiction. This revised edition builds on her internationally-recognized knowledge in the field of women's issues, addiction, trauma and recovery. It is exciting to see some of the new sessions that have been added. The updated resources and citations add additional value to this already useful body of work."
-Colette Anderson, LCSW, Executive Director, The Connecticut Women's Consortium
