dc.description.abstract until recently, women were not believed to have unique concerns regarding their use of alcohol. Information was usually gathered from men and then extrapolated to include women. There have been bursts of research over the past 20 years, however, there remains an urgent need to continue and expand research in this area to facilitate the development of a working treatment and recovery model for women. Whether it be a community or acute care setting, nurses have traditionally been the first point of contact for many alcohol users. As with any disease process, it is essential that nurses look beyond the presenting symptom and perceive the client as a person. To aid in this perception, the nurse must understand or at least recognize the unique experiences of the person. Phenomenology as a research method allows the researcher to explore the lived experience of the phenomenon in question. In this phenomenological research project, the experiences of 4 women recovering from alcoholism were explored. en
