The epidemiology of combined alcohol and drug use within treatment agencies : a comparison by gender.
As clinical and research attention focuses on the phenomenon of combined alcohol- and drug-related problems and alcohol and drug systems merge, important questions remain regarding the role of gender across treatment systems.
This study examines epidemiologic characteristics in a comprehensive sample of female and male clients in one county's separately administered alcohol treatment (N=381) and drug treatment (N=304) systems.
Large differences were found between women in alcohol and drug treatment agencies on measures of alcohol and drug patterns and problems.
Women in alcohol treatment reported more combined use of problem attribution than women in drug treatment.
The same patterns were found for men in comparisons across the two systems.
