Clinicians are aware of the important differences of gender with regard to the physical and emotional effects of substance use. Specific issues related to the delivery of gender-responsive services for women by combining clinical interventions, practical applications and resources with women’s voices. Practical hands-on tools and resources about the specific recovery needs of women can increase treatment effectiveness. Improved outcomes when women’s specific treatment provided result in better engagement and retention for successful results.
