Alcohol use impacts women differently than men due to physiological differences such as lower body weight and having lower levels of alcohol dehydrogenase enzymes in the stomach that help eliminate alcohol. Consuming more than one drink per day places women at risk for health concerns such as heart disease, breast cancer, and, for pregnant women or women trying to become pregnant, fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. For some women, no alcohol use is recommended.

Healthcare providers working in community-based primary care and behavioral health organizations that are building integrated care capacity can identify at-risk alcohol use among women and provide brief interventions, education, and referral to treatment if indicated to help them cut down or quit alcohol. Join this webinar to learn about the impact of alcohol and other drugs on women’s health and best practices to identify and intervene for substance use among women.

*Note: This webinar will primarily focus on alcohol, however, some information about other drugs (e.g., opioids) will be shared.

During this webinar, participants will:
  • Learn about health consequences for women associated with alcohol use.
  • Discuss the importance of screening all women for alcohol use and identify best practices to intervene to help women cut down on or quit alcohol use.
  • Receive tools and resources for integrated care providers specific to alcohol use and women.

Please note the following:

-Registration is free and closed captioning is available upon request.

-The SAMHSA-HRSA Center for Integrated Health Solutions does not provide certificates of attendance or continuing education credits for webinar attendance.
