Women’s substance use and mental health issues do not exist in isolation; women’s relationships and partners may facilitate or derail the recovery process. This webinar will explore the impact of behavioral health conditions on significant relationships; interventions that support positive outcomes for women, their partners, and their families; and considerations in service planning. Topics will include women’s intimate relationships and substance use, the role of relationships in women’s access to and engagement in behavioral health services, couple and family therapies for women’s substance use and co-occurring disorders, relationship dynamics and recovery, and special considerations in LGBTQ relationships.
