Tea Time presents:

On today’s show we continue with Dr. Hendrée Jones’ presentation on Whole Person Treatment – Caring for Women Across the Lifespan. This presentation was recorded at the Reynolds-VCU Humphreys Fellows Annual Symposium. This year’s theme: International Perspectives on Women and Substance Abuse. Dr. Jones is a professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the School of Medicine, University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. She is also the executive director of UNC Horizons, a comprehensive drug treatment program for pregnant and parenting women and their drug-exposed children.

International Narcotics Control Board devoted Chapter 1 of their report in 2016 to women
• The report summarized that compared to men, women:
• Are highly stigmatized
• Experience more violence
• Are less likely to receive treatment for substance use disorders
• Lack access to gender-specific treatment
• Are being incarcerated at higher rates = devastating effects on children
• While gender itself may not predict treatment outcome, there are
gender-specific factors that influence treatment outcomes in women

On today’s show, we have included modules: Peer 2 Ear with Sammy Styles and a V Word module on addiction and substance with Carol Olson.
