The purpose of this study was to conduct an assessment of the substance abuse treatment services available to women in Ventura County. Publicly available data were collected via websites and community resource books. Verification phone calls were made to agencies to confirm that the data were accurate.
This study found that 26 agencies provided some type of substance abuse treatment to women who live in Ventura County. The most common type of substance abuse treatment available was outpatient treatment. Slightly over one third of the agencies served women only and most of the agencies served dual-diagnosed clients. Almost half of the agencies provided some type of transportation and only 3 offered child care.
Social workers need to continue to advocate for services for women with substance abuse problems and develop specialized programs to meet their needs.
