Helping Men Recover: A Program for Treating Addiction (Criminal Justice Version)

“For too long, “gender-responsive” has meant, “for women.” Addiction is a chronic recurring brain disorder, and treatment approaches that target men are equally important if we are serious about reversing the spiral of drugs and crimes that has swollen our prisons and nearly bankrupted our states. Helping Men Recover makes a down payment on that effort and is the first smart, male-responsive tool that can be used in prisons and jails with the men who need it. As always, Covington and colleagues are on point, approachable, and responsive to their audience. This is a needed tool for every prison and jail administrator who is determined to release individuals from custody with a better chance of success.”

“In this unique gender-responsive approach, I have found a practical guide to successfully treat the often overlooked trauma that many incarcerated males have experienced."

Tom Combs, Administrator
Substance Abuse Services Section, Michigan Department of Corrections

“Practical, grounded in theory and best practice, based on men’s particular needs and strength, you’ll find that Helping Men Recover is an excellent, easy-to-use resource for any professional working with men in residential and non-residential treatment programs.”
