Helping Men Recover is the first gender-responsive, trauma-informed treatment program for men. The materials, based on the widely used, evidence-based women's curriculum, Helping Women Recover, are grounded in research, theory, and clinical practice. Included in this package are a facilitator's guide and a participant's workbook.

This version of Helping Men Recover has been specifically developed for men in the criminal justice system. Presented in an eighteen-session format, the facilitator's guide offers a step-by-step manual that contains the theory, structure, and content needed to run effective groups. The participant's workbook is designed so that men can process, record, and refer back to their therapeutic experience.

The program model is organized into four modules: self, relationships, sexuality, and spirituality. These are the four areas that recovering men have identified as triggers for relapse and as necessary for growth and healing. In addition, all the materials are designed to be user-friendly and self-instructive.
