This publication is one of the first to focus on gender differences in addictive disorders. It is a tool for understanding and a guide for more effective treatment of women by the programs and professionals in the drug and alcohol prevention and treatment field. Authored by women for women health care professionals and educators, this volume deals with all aspects of the field including research, intervention, treatment, prevention, and education at the community, academic, government, public, and private levels. In addition to women in the general population, it also looks at issues of addictive disorders among women of color, lesbian, Latino, Native American, and women living in abusive domestic situations (co-dependency).
