Description

Charting Women's Journeys is about the meaning of addiction and recovery in the lives of twenty-five Appalachian women who have been practicing abstinence from the use of alcohol and/or drugs for eighteen months or more in a small rural community in the United States. The empirical focus is on the ways in which these women's lives have been transformed through the processes of addiction to and abstinence from these substances.show more
