Spiegel, Virginia M.
Counseling and Values, v34 n1 p51-56 Oct 1989
Obtained information on addiction history, intervention and treatment, and family and community patterns from 221 Catholic Sisters in residential treatment for alcoholism. Findings suggest that, although respondents were similar to other women in their vulnerability to addiction, they carried added burdens because of societal expectations of appropriate behavior. (NB)
