Luckily, when I started playing I had to take a learn-to-skate school. 20 sessions long, the first 10 were without pucks. Totally worth it. I could stop both ways, pivot both ways, skate backwards with crossovers, all rather quickly.
I would suggest (even if you're an adult) skating school.
But like said, if you knwo how to stop on one foot, just do the same thing with the other. To get really specific, just stand on the boards at a public skating thing, and practice scraping with your bad foot to get a feel for where your edge is. Go from there.
