Women and girls are now becoming addicted at greater rates than ever before-and until very recently women in recovery were dependent on treatment models based solely on work with men.

Harvard addiction and trauma expert Lisa M. Najavits, PhD offers a step-by-step program to help women overcome the often- overlooked problems associated with their drug and alcohol addictions-- such as body image, trauma and violence, relationships, stress, and thrill-seeking. She explore how women differ from men in their addiction and recovery, and conveys a supportive tone to help them embark on the journey to healing. A chapter on co-occurring emotional problems allows readers to evaluate whether they may have any of the key disorders common among women with addiction-- such as depression, posttraumatic stress, eating disorders, or phobias.

In this strengths-building workbook, women take steps to come to terms with their personal addiction stories. Healing exercises in four areas-- feelings, beliefs, action, and relationships-- help women build self-respect. Exercises include Listen to That Small Quiet Voice, Extreme Self-Care, Self-Soothing, Become Friends with Women, Rethink, Take Charge, Share Responsibility, and Mourn. Throughout, a directory of recovery options are offered.
