The infographic on the “Way Forward- developing gender-sensitive addiction treatment programs to eradicate barriers for women” presents the barriers women face for accessing and adhering to addiction treatment as well as possible ways to overcome them.
With the “Way Forward” we would like to raise awareness on the problem while challenging professional teams to take an active role in reducing gender barriers, either by rethinking the designs of existing programs, improving training plans, reviewing their stereotypes at work, or/and enhancing their networking. As you will see, the proposals to overcome the barriers have more to do with a change of approach, rather than with the investment of large budgets. Everyone can therefore contribute to it!
