Women and Addiction

Women’s bodies are biologically more vulnerable to the negative effects of alcohol or drug consumption. They are more prone to psychological damage, such as depression, trauma, abuse, shame and stigma. They find it harder to quit drinking or drug taking.

Help and Support for Women
