Odyssey House Louisiana CEO to speak at UN panel on gender-sensitive addiction treatment programs

Monday, March 22nd / 10:30am-12:00pm CT Women with substance use disorders face many obstacles in accessing and engaging in addiction treatment programs. Considering that gender-based violence is an initiating or aggravating factor of substance use disorder, it is imperative to address this complex relation in a holistic manner. Within male-dominated environments, where gender aspects are frequently overlooked, women who experience gender based violence and substance use disorders find it difficult to address this problem effectively. This parallel event to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women will explore the links between gender based violence and substance use disorders and will shed light on how gender-sensitive programs address gender based violence as a key element in the therapeutic process. Event flyer / Speakers include:

  • Lois A. Herman - Managing Director, Women’s UN Report Network (WUNRN)

  • Gisela Hansen Rodríguez, Ph.D. - Clinical and Health Psychologist, Dianova

  • Edward C. Carlson, MA, M.F.T. - Chief Executive Officer, Odyssey House Louisiana, Inc.

  • Nazlee Maghsoudi, BComm, MGA - Chairperson, Executive Committee, New York NGO Committee on Drugs (NYNGOC)
