Women and addiction: The silent victims
During National Addictions Awareness Week, Portage put the spotlight on the challenges that women face with regards to getting help with drug addiction. Many women who suffer from drug or alcohol dependency have been victims of abuse, violence, or unhealthy relationships, and their drug use is often closely tied to these struggles. Women, and more particularly mothers, face discrimination, prejudice, and stigmatisation with regards to their drug problems, and often hesitate to ask for help as a consequence.
