Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Why is it that newfound sobriety, with its hard-won joys and accomplishments, can be such a lonely and unsatisfying experience for many women? The answer, according to pioneering therapist Stephanie Brown, Ph.D., can be found by looking in the mirror. Once a woman leaves behind the numbing comforts of alcohol or other drugs, she is left to face herself--perhaps for the first time in her life. With gentle guidance and personal stories, Brown helps readers unravel painful truths and confusing feelings in the process of weaving for themselves a true sense of self. Dr. Stephanie Brown, a pioneering addiction researcher and therapist, offers women a map to find their way through the rocky spots in sobriety.
