Did you know there are differences in the physical, psychological, social, and spiritual effects of substance use and abuse on women and men?  Those differences have implications for treatment in behavioral health settings.  The U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA)  offers two reports that emphasize  gender-specific research and best practices, such as common patterns of initiation of substance use among women and men and specific treatment issues and strategies.   These reports  demonstrate how important it is to advocate for sex and gender based research across all body systems, something  our Institute is striving to make happen.
