Drug Dependence and Alcoholism: Volume 2: Social and Behavioral Issues Softcover reprint of the original 1st ed. 1981 Edition

by Arnold J. Schecter (Editor)

Determination and treatment of the unique needs of each addicted individual is a prerequisite to rehabilitation. General descriptions of large subgroups of the addicted population may only serve to iden­ tify issues pertinent to treatment and global treatment needs. How­ ever, specification of services needed is a first step in incorpora­ ting these in treatment. Clearly, women in treatment need many ser­ vices which, currently, are not typically available and may be criti­ cal for successful treatment of many of these women. REFERENCES Anderson, M. 1977.
