Endorsements: Helping Men Recover–Criminal Justice Edition

“If we are serious about affecting long-term recovery and lessening the likelihood of relapse(s) in our male clients, it is paramount that we engage in gender-responsive treatment. Thank you to these three authors whose work has the potential to revolutionize addiction services.”Claudia Black, PhD; addiction specialist and author of It Will Never Happen to Me

“I have been inspired by reading your curriculum Helping Men Recover. Too often men are taught not to show emotion or share feelings. The way you present the material will help men from all walks of life find their way through the recovery process, while exploring their spirituality, emotions, and relationships with strength and courage. White Bison, the Wellbriety Movement, and I fully support this program. Thanks for your work in helping other men recover.”—Don Coyhis, president, White Bison, Inc.

“A superb work that fully understands and articulates the unique challenges faced by men in recovery from alcohol and drug abuse. Dr. Covington, a true pioneer in gender-responsive approaches, and her colleagues offer a powerful set of resources for this work. The model’s emphases on trauma and on spirituality are especially welcome, giving this material a timely, strengths-based orientation.”—Roger D. Fallot, PhD, Community Connections, Washington, DC

“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 crime 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…As always, Covington and colleagues are on point, approachable, and responsive to their audience.”Martin F. Horn, distinguished lecturer, John Jay College, New York City; former Commissioner of Corrections and Probation, City of New York; former Secretary of Corrections, Pennsylvania
