Are Women Less Likely To Seek Help For Alcohol Abuse?

The Fix - 03-19


A recent study found that drinking affects women's bodies differently than men—and now a new study shows that women approach getting help for drinking differently as well. Iowa Now reported that a new study from the University of Iowa reveals blatant gender differences, and confirmed the need for gender-disparate studies on health issues. Women were significantly more likely than men to believe their alcohol abuse would resolve on its own, with 47% of women responding affirmatively versus 23% of men.
