Four hundred forty-seven Medicaid-eligible pregnant chemically dependent women were interviewed during their stay in publicly funded detoxification centers in Massachusetts.
One hundred eightyfour women (41%) reported sexual abuse during their lifetime.
Sexually abused women differed significantly from women who had not been abused, on a variety ofpsychological, social, and medical problems indicators.
Sexually abused women appear to constitute a specific subgroup of the larger population of substance abusing women, and have unique treatment needs.
