New from CAMH--Highs & Lows: Canadian Perspectives on Women and Substance Use

Nancy Poole and Lorraine Greaves, Editors

Developed through a partnership between the British Columbia Centre of Excellence for Women's Health and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health

Women's and girls' substance use is now recognized as an important health, economic and social issue in Canada. However, most books about alcohol and other drug use do not address the unique needs and circumstances of this population. Highs & Lows draws on the latest theory and research to offer strategies for improving practice and developing policy to support women with substance use problems. This unique book includes contributions from nearly 100 experts on women's substance use, including psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, clinical therapists, health promoters, academics, alternative health care providers, women's health advocates--and women who have been affected by substance use.
