In honor of International Women´s Day, listen to our members share their message about women, substance disorder, treatment and recovery.
Statement by WFAD Gender Working Group
“…still this day, women face significant disadvantages within the realm of prevention, treatment, recovery, and reintegration services. With the lack of gender-specific and trauma-informed services, intersected by stigmatisation and violence, women around the world are hindered from accessing adequate support.”
Read about the need for and benefits of the inclusion of women and people with lived experiences in creating adequate services and drug policy. We will have to continue to raise awareness around the fact that “People can and do Recover”.
