Abstract

This article illustrates how women who abuse alcohol are at greater risk physically, emotionally and socially than their male counterparts. As a result, I recommend that clinical assessment and underwriting of women, who abuse or have the potential to abuse alcohol, change to reflect the increased risks which these women face.
