Taking Back Your Life: Women and Problem Gamblingby Diane Rae Davis
Synopses & Reviews
Today there are more than five million women who struggle with problem gambling in the United States alone, and this number is increasing as casinos, online card rooms, and other venues continue to multiply. Despite this high number, those who do seek assistance often find that their experiences as women--the taboo of being female and having a gambling problem, and the social and cultural pressures specific to women--are not addressed.
In this groundbreaking book, addiction expert Diane Rae Davis, Ph.D., offers women everywhere the support they need to face this debilitating problem and take the necessary steps to regain control of their lives. Offering information on preventing relapse, finding support groups, and healing relationships with loved ones, Davis uses the most up-to-date research and methods for treatment to help women gamblers
Each section of this user-friendly guide highlights real success stories of women who have gone through the same issues and treatment strategies, and have discovered the rewards of beating a gambling problem and reclaimed hope for their lives.
Up-to-date, guided support to help women with a gambling problem achieve the rewards of a hopeful life, free of addiction
