4.5 million women are impacted by addiction. We have a plan to change that.
Women are the fastest-growing segment of alcohol and drug users in the United States.
In fact, up to 4.5 million women over age 12 in the U.S. have a substance use disorder, 3.5 million misuse prescription drugs, and 3.1 million regularly use illicit drugs. Each year, over 200,000 American women die as a result of alcoholism and drug dependence, with more than 4 million women in need of treatment for their addiction. www.ncadd.org
Addicted women often have more to juggle than men with similar problems. They’re more likely to live with their children and to have to navigate the child welfare system.Read More
Addicted women are more likely than their male counterparts to have sexual and physical abuse histories, and women are twice as likely as men to suffer from mood disorders such as depression along with their addiction, which affects treatment outcomes. www.ncadd.org
The emotional and spiritual damage done by addiction runs deep, and when a woman is addicted it can impact the entire family system.
In treatment, just as each patient’s needs are unique and a treatment program must be tailored to address those particular needs, attention also must be paid to the special needs of women. www.ncadd.org
