The Riverside Clinic Facebook page recently shared an article by Katherine Gillespie titled, ‘Let's Talk About How Women Experience Drug Addiction Differently.’ The focus of the article is a new book titled ‘Woman of Substances’ authored by Jenny Valentish which explores how women are susceptible to self-destruction in ways men aren't. The article also shares information from the ‘Report of the International Narcotics Control Board for 2016’ which cites new statistics revealing that once women start abusing drugs like cannabis, heroin, or cocaine, their rate of consumption progresses more rapidly than among men.
An excerpt from Katherine Gillespie’s article states, “Researchers told her that about a third of females who inject drugs were initiated by sexual partners. And women often use drugs and alcohol to bolster ideas of equality and put themselves on the same playing field as male counterparts. Women are also more likely to use self-destructive drug habits to create a sense of personal autonomy they otherwise find difficult to grasp. And women are far likelier to use drugs and alcohol as coping mechanisms in social situations, while men use them for positive enhancement and fun.”
The Facebook page also shares inspiring stories and videos by celebrities and persons who overcame addictions. They include stories of how Mike Tyson overcame his drug addiction besides other informative articles such as ‘Your after work drinks could be causing high blood pressure,’ ‘Acute alcohol consumption can disrupt heart rhythms, study finds’ and the like.
