Webinar: Women and Recovery: Breaking Free from Addiction – Feb. 26, 2015

FREE Webinar: Thursday, Feb. 26, 2015, 12:00-1:00pm

Women turn to substance use for many reasons, including untreated mental health issues and low-self esteem.  Shame, stigma, and multiple barriers to obtaining treatment, like a lack of family support, are some of the reasons why women struggle with returning to health after active addiction. This webinar will address how gender-specific treatment continues to emerge as a treatment of choice, as it caters to the unique needs and challenges that women face.  This webinar will also address the pitfalls of being “other focused,” by nature and nurture, and dealing with hormones that create a “love” relationship with drugs.
