Women who use substances face a distinctive set of challenges in accessing and succeeding in treatment, including social stigma, trauma, abusive relationships and a greater burden of caring responsibilities. But what can treatment providers, probation practitioners and other people working with women who use substances do to respond to women's needs?
Centre for Justice Innovation, Staffordshire University and Expert Citizens have been speaking to women in treatment, practitioners and experts in order to better understand the challenges women face in accessing and engaging with treatment and how they can be met.
This online event will:
• share the findings of their research, and
• offer advice on the best way to support women
This recording will be of particular interest to those working with women affected by substance use.
