How Did One Glass of Wine Become A Bottle Every Night?: Women and Addiction

Inspired Journeys: Overcoming Adversity and Thriving

Jun 18 2013 • 56 mins

In this hour I will discuss with my guest, Denise Tordella, some of the challenges and barriers that are unique to treating women with addiction issues. We will explore the physical, emotional, and behavioral red flags that indicate the possibility of a substance abuse problem, as well as the slippery slope that quickly brings women to a place of being out of control with alcohol. We will process the relationship between addiction and trauma as well as other factors that may contribute to substance use and abuse. Special attention will be paid to the very real feelings of embarrassment, shame and denial that prevent women from seeking treatment and getting the help they deserve. We will also discuss the common myths and stereotypes that relate to women and addiction, and helping professionals will learn how to recognize the problem when treating their patients. As always, we will provide resources for hope and support!
