Women and Drug Abuse

Today, more than 4 million women in this country use drugs. Women of all ages, races and cultures..... Women just like your best friend, your sister, your co-worker, or your daughter....Women just like you.

Drug abuse is a serious, continuing illness. There are no easy cures.
