There is increasing concern among all health and social care professionals about substance use among women. Of particular concern is the consequence of substance use on the physical, mental, and social well-being of women and also the repercussive effect on their children, families, and communities. Substance Abuse Among Women speaks directly to the helping professionals and students trying to understand the various aspects of substance use among women and the crisis that it has become. This comprehensive text is a compilation of theoretical, empirical, and clinical knowledge concerning key topics associated with substance use among women. The early chapters provide an overview of the issues with attention to the nature and extent of substance use among women. The text features a new empirically-based assessment model, developed by the authors, as well as a variety of modern theories and treatment interventions. Critical developmental issues including the toxic effects effects of substance use during and after pregnancy and the effects of substance use on healthy aging are included. Many important issues are also explored, including: major depression and other mental disorders; dual diagnosis; sexual abuse; and high-risk lifestyles. This useful and informative resource concludes with chapters devoted to strategies used in clinical practice. These chapters, rich in detail, will enable readers to select and apply these strategies to their own clinical practice.

Elizabeth Ettorre offers a clear account of women and substance use in a field which has been resistant to a woman-oriented perspective. The authors of most "addiction studies" view women as stigmatized and marginalized. Ettorre strongly counters this perspective. She focuses specifically on women's use of alcohol, prescribed drugs (specifically minor tranquilizers), heroin, tobacco, and food. Using the term "substance use" rather than "abuse" throughout the text, she directly challenges ideas regarding women in the field of addiction. More significantly. Ettorre deliberately puts forward a feminist perspective rooted in the identity and consciousness of women substance users. In order to expose the major misconception held by both clinicians and researchers in the field - that women substance abusers are a homogeneous group - Ettorre provides separate analyses of the different substances used and abused by women. She emphasizes the types of feminist strategies to use which will mobilize women in the substance abuse field. These strategies, she argues, must become increasingly visible if changes are to occur. Women need to build an alternative creative response which challenges the pervasive dogmatism in the substance abuse field. Ettorre's book will generate interest in an avowedly collective, feminist approach.

This TIP is organized into three parts: Part 1 for substance abuse clinical supervisors focuses on providing appropriate supervision methods and frameworks. Part 2 for program administrators focuses on providing administrative support to implement adoption of the counseling recommendations made in Part 1. Part 3 for clinical supervisors, program administrators, and interested counselors is an online literature review that provides an in-depth look at relevant published resources. Part 3 will be updated every 6 months for 5 years following publication of the TIP. Ideally this TIP might be used in a series of six or so meetings in which the materials in the TIP would be reviewed, discussed, and in other ways used as an educational and training vehicle for the improvement of clinical supervision skills (with the particulars of how this training would be done determined by the trainer, based upon her or his unique situation, needs, and preferences). Thus, after a relatively short period of time and with few or no additional resources, this TIP could meet the challenge of fostering improvement in the delivery of substance abuse treatment services.

This issue of Obstetrics and Gynecology Clinics of North America deals with the timely subject of substance use during pregnancy. Alcohol, tobacco, and illicit drug use is prevalent among reproductive-age women. Even though a reduction in use often occurs during pregnancy, many women continue to use substances until a pregnancy is either actually diagnosed or well underway.This issue consists of a well-qualified team of obstetricians-gynecologists, psychiatrists, and family physicians, focusing on various issues related directly to pregnancies complicated by substance use. Topics of interest include epidemiology and screening for hazardous and harmful substance use, teratogenic risks, psychiatric comorbidities, comprehensive treatment approaches before and after delivery, fetal surveillance, and team-based perinatal management. Particularly new information relates to prescribing buprenorphine, neonatal abstinence syndrome, and adolescent substance use.
