  • Lesbians’ Process of Recovery from Addiction

    Lesbians’; Process of
    Recovery from Addiction
    This article presents the
    results of a qualitative
    study on lesbians’;
    recovery from addiction.
    The study involved semi-
    structured interviews with
    20 lesbians in recovery
    from addiction and was
    analyzed using grounded
    theory method. The central
    theme that emerged was
    self-acceptance, both as a
    lesbian and as a recovering
    alcoholic/addict, with
    considerable interaction
    between the two.
    Categories that
    contributed to this theme
    were learning to recover,
    relationships with other
    people, and relationship
    with something bigger than
    self. The discussion
    addresses how this
    information can be used to
    assist lesbians trying to
    recover from addiction.
