Research suggests that:

  • Women may become addicted to drugs and alcohol faster than men.
  • Women may develop health complications from drugs and alcohol faster than men.
  • Older women are especially vulnerable to addictions.
  • Pregnant women who drink alcohol or use drugs put their babies at increased risk for birth defects such as Fetal Alcohol Syndrome or mental retardation.
