Chapter 7 covers specific substance abuse treatment recommendations for female clients, as well as the research supporting the recommendations.

Specific recommendations are provided to assist clinicians and administrators in developing and maintaining trauma-informed therapeutic healing programs designed to meet the specific needs of female clients.
