Women and Addiction
From Science to Policy

Women and girls represent an increasing proportion of those with substance use disorders worldwide, yet it is only recently that women have been included in addiction research. Since then, studies have revealed critical differences in effective interventions between men and women. Shelly Greenfield will discuss the latest research and a gender-specific approach that optimizes prevention and recovery for women.
