The prevalence of trauma among substance]involved women is high. The Ontario Drug Treatment Funding Program (DTFP) Trauma and Substance Use project team is developing guidelines to support organizations that offer substance use treatment services for women. These guidelines will help service providers understand the connections between trauma and substance use, and provide better care for substance involved women.
EENet’s next webinar, a continuation of the Health Canada DTFP series, looks at “Women, Trauma, and Substance Use: Guidelines for Informed Practices.” The event will be on February 21, 2013 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. EST.
Presenters Nancy Bradley, project lead and director of the Jean Tweed Centre in Toronto, and Janine Gates, project consultant, will give a project overview, define what are trauma informed practices, describe how the guidelines were developed, and discuss the project’s next steps.
