Addiction: l'égalité face aux substances [Addiction: are women and men equal?]
Revue Médicale Suisse
Publication types: English Abstract ; Journal Article
When illicit drugs are taken, men and women have a different biological response to drug used. Likewise, gender differences show more stigmas, more complex familial environment, and more history of sexual abuse for drug addicted women. The expression of psychiatric co-morbidities differs according to gender, with increased mood disorders, eating disorders, anxiety, and post traumatic disorders among drug addicted women.
