Strategies for Incorporating Women-Specific Sexuality Education into Addiction Treatment Models
James, Raven
American Journal of Sexuality Education, v2 n3 p3-25 Sep 2007
This paper advocates for the incorporation of a women-specific sexuality curriculum in the addiction treatment process to aid in sexual healing and provide for aftercare issues. Sexuality in addiction treatment modalities is often approached from a sex-negative stance, or that of sexual victimization. Sexual issues are viewed as addictive in and of themselves or as trauma/abuse experiences that are gender-specific in nature. Lacking in treatment modalities is a sexuality curriculum for women or men that address sexuality as a necessary and normal part of life and integral to the recovery process. This paper proposes a rationale for treatment modalities to consider when integrating women-specific sexuality curriculum into current addiction programs.
