No complaints about today’s work views🏼. One of my favourite aspects of being a part of the Hazelden Betty Ford family is the access to continuing education webinars. Today’s webinar was on alcohol use in women. Check out a few key points below:
️ It is well documented that women are at a higher risk than men for telescoping...which is when someone transitions from casually drinking to problematic drinking
️ Binge drinking (4 or more drinks at a time) is a key predictor for alcohol related health consequences
️ STIGMA still exists around substance use disorders...over 55% of women surveyed stated they would feel ashamed/embarrassed to bring up a potential substance use problem.
️ Women who self medicate with alcohol are more likely than men to experience substance induced anxiety.
If you or someone you know is in need of support with substance use issues please PM or book a free consult. - 7 hours ago
