Description:
Drug abuse and addiction are among the most pressing health and social issues facing our Nation, posing serious health risks and often tragic consequences for those who are afflicted and for their families and communities. Because women traditionally have been underrepresented in research studies and drug abuse treatment groups, the effects of drug abuse are far less understood for women than for men.
