New DEUSTO Publication “Women and Drugs: Handbook for the prevention of relapses from a gender perspective”

Drug-dependent women differ from their male counterparts in patterns of drug use, psychosocial and physiological characteristics, practices, motivations and sense of consumption, and despite this, treatments, in general, continue to apply intervention models based on male reality. This manual, written from a gender perspective, aims to be, on the one hand, a training tool for professional teams in order to adapt their therapeutic offer to the needs of women, while on the other hand, it proposes a practical intervention aimed at creating an empowering space for women through group work exclusively for women.
