Substance Use in Women Across the Lifespan

For many years, substance use research routinely excluded women, leading to an accumulation of data and treatment recommendations that are heavily biased toward men. As this has shifted in recent decades, it has become clear that women have different pathways to the development of a substance use disorder, as well as different risk factors, treatment needs, and barriers to treatment, compared to those of men (SAMHSA, 2011). In this course, you will learn about the effects of age and life transitions on alcohol and drug use in women and how these are reflected in treatment methodologies. A host of stressors and life transitions can be accompanied by significant changes in substance use and can be implicated in women's development of a substance use disorder. Through a blend of didactic information and interactive exercises, you will learn ways that you can provide gender-sensitive treatment to women struggling with substance use or at risk of developing a substance use disorder.
