The Handbook of Addiction Treatment for Women is a comprehensive resource of the most current research and knowledge from recognized experts in the field of addiction and treatment. This much needed guide offers an historical context on the issue of women and addiction, examines the myriad challenges of the female addict, and includes recommendations for choosing a course of treatment that will meet the specific needs of an individual woman addict.
"The Handbook of Addiction Treatment for Women brings to the field the thinking of researchers and practitioners in a very readable, practical compendium. This book is for anyone who cares about women with addictions." Mary Beth Johnson, director, Addiction Technology Transfer Center, National Office
"This is a wonderful book that addresses an unusually diverse set of issues, some of which are often neglected. It is not only useful to clinicians, but also to educators, researchers, policymakers, and anyone responsible for treatment program design."
