Addiction or social mandate?

Towards a gender perspective in the dependence field, by María Paula Capote, Social Worker at the Chanaes Comprehensive Treatment Centre for Youth and Adults with Dual Pathology, managed by the Fundación Dianova Uruguay

Including gender as a category in intervention means keeping in mind throughout the process the variables entailed by being a woman in a given sociohistorical context or moment. Addiction intervention has focused mainly on the drug itself and not on the consumer’s characteristics, and what really guarantees success in the therapeutic process is being able to problematize and intervene in the relationship that the person has established with the substance.
