Presentation of DEUSTO Handbook “Women and Drugs: Manual for relapse prevention with a gender perspective”

The Handbook “Women and Drugs: Manual for relapse prevention with a gender perspective” was presented at the Delegation of the Drugs National Plan in Madrid on 23 January 2020.

The handbook is a practical theoretical manual that incorporates the gender dimension as the central axis of the intervention on female drug addiction, by looking at the influence of the social structures in the analysis and interpretation of the problem and its solution.

It seeks to provide a new framework for understanding and addressing women's drug use and, at the same time, it proposes a practical proposal to adapt the therapeutic offer of resources to women's needs, generating an empowerment space in which they acquire control on decisions and actions that affect their health and well-being.

Its authors are Patricia Martínez Redondo and Elisabete Arostegui, researcher at the University of Deusto and member of the Gender Interdisciplinary Research Platform.
