For many years, addiction research focused almost exclusively on men. Yet scientific awareness of sex and gender differences in substance use disorders has grown tremendously in recent decades. This volume brings together leading authorities to review the state of the science and identify key directions for research and clinical practice. Concise, focused chapters illuminate how biological and psychosocial factors influence the etiology and epidemiology of substance use disorders in women; their clinical presentation, course, and psychiatric comorbidities; treatment access; and treatment effectiveness. Prevalent substances of abuse are examined, as are issues facing special populations.

KEY FEATURES:
- Timely: research on the topic has exploded in recent years.
- Comprehensively reviews the state of the science and practice.
- Chapters are concise, focused, and consistently structured to enhance utility for clinicians and students.
- Editors and contributors represent both psychiatry and psychology.

AUDIENCE: Clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, substance abuse counselors, psychiatric nurses, and other specialists in addictions and substance abuse; graduate students in these areas.

COURSE USE: May serve as a supplemental text in such courses as Women and Addiction, Gender and Substance Abuse, Substance Abuse and Addiction, Women's Mental Health, and Psychology of Women.
