Thematic paper: Womenâ?Ts voices: experiences and perceptions of women facing drug problems.

Creator:

European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction

Type: Report
Region: Republic of Ireland
Northern Ireland
Description:

Epidemiological studies routinely collect quantitative data on gender differences in drug use (e.g. prevalence, mortality), but far less is published on the qualitative aspects of female drug problems. This review presents quotations gleaned from interviews with women in eight countries. Through these testimonies, the report illustrates how qualitative research can provide glimpses into the experiences and perceptions of women facing drug issues that statistics alone cannot provide. Table of contents: * Confusion for women as parents of drug users * Neglect and physical and sexual abuse * Childcare and being a â?~goodâ?T mother * Women in prison * Stigma, policies and practices that make it difficult for women to access services * Discussion and conclusions
