Time & Location
About the Event
Barbara McCrady, Ph.D.
Distinguished Professor of Psychology
The University of New Mexico
This presentation will provide an overview of current knowledge of women with alcohol use disorder (AUD). Women with AUD experience unique barriers to treatment and are less likely to get treatment than men with AUD. Women enter treatment with more severe AUD and more complex psychological, social, and service needs than men. Treatment programs may reduce barriers to entering AUD treatment and provide services that address the unique needs of women.
