The Canadian Network of Substance Abuse and Allied Professionals has a series of resources or “toolkits” for professionals.
The latest toolkit is on “The Essentials of … Women and Problematic Substance Use” which is a four page overview of the unique aspects of women and substance use and implications for allied professionals. The toolkit was written by Colleen Ann Dell from the University of Saskatchewan. (You can also check out a previous post on work she has done related to Aboriginal women and healing from illicit substance use here).
