Treating substance-abusing women can be a completely different entity from treating men. Often, women who abuse substances face significant barriers when seeking treatment, and are often in need of therapeutic techniques specifically tailored to suit their needs.
Keeping this in mind, and using the textbook, lecture materials, and other scholarly resources, respond to the following questions:
Describe the barriers that women face when seeking treatment. Compare and contrast how these barriers differ from the barriers faced by men. Recommend several treatment modifications that should be made for women in treatment. Explain why these modifications are important and how they are different from treatment for men.
Write your initial response in approximately 300–400 words. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.
When writing your responses, comment on how women seeking treatment are in need of counseling tailored specifically to their needs.
