Reports on the Canadian Mental Health Association conference, 'Planning for Change: Women & Chemical Dependencies' held in St. John's on June 11 to 13, 1993. The conference addressed chemical dependency in three specific focus groups: young women, elderly women and Native women. Successive workshops focused on guiding principles in the education and treatment of women, social realities, substance abuse issues specific to each group, services currently available, and ways to make prevention and treatment programs more effective. This report summarizes the collective knowledge, experience and recommendations of the women who participated in the conference. From this conference came the overwhelming sense that substance abuse is a symptom of underlying problems facing women in our society such as low self-esteem; physical, sexual or psychological abuse; poverty; and isolation. It became apparent that improving the quality of women's lives is an effective way to prevent substance abuse and to speed recovery. The report concludes with recommendations to develop culturally sensitive programs for Native women, to provide day care for women in treatment, to treat addictions in holistic ways that address underlying social and psychological problems, to provide social activities that overcome isolation and replace pastimes centred on drugs or alcohol, to teach problem solving skills and stress management.
