Free NAADAC Webinar
This webinar is designed to expand the knowledge of clinicians who work with the female population. Women are at a higher risk for developing a dual diagnosis. However, they are less likely to seek treatment due to the fear and stigma involved in receiving treatment. Women are also more likely to be misdiagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, this mistake, therefore results in improper treatment and often times a relapse. In addition, women experience higher rates of self-harm behavior. Unisex treatment centers are often times not equipped or trained to treat special areas of women issues, which include childhood trauma and abuse, resulting in poor success rates. Proper training and understanding of women’s issues can increase success rates and sobriety in women.
