Measurement of gender-sensitive treatment for women in mixed-gender substance abuse treatment programs

Drug and Alcohol Dependence, 05/25/2012

This is the first study to quantify gender–sensitive (GS) treatment for substance abusing women. The identified treatment services and practices and the way they clustered together to form scales have practical implications for researchers, service providers, clinicians, and policy makers. The scales can be used to study treatment outcomes and to evaluate the effectiveness, cost–effectiveness, and cost–benefit of GS programming for women.
