“Germayne Boswell Tizzano’s curriculum, Sanctuary for Change: A Sexual Health Program for Women in Recovery, addresses an important aspect of women’s recovery–sexuality. This topic is often ignored in traditional treatment, yet it is a common trigger for women’s relapse. This curriculum helps women to come together to share and talk abou their feelings, experiences, and challenges regarding their sexual health. This is a contribution to the addicition field.”
