Journal of Interpersonal Violence, v14 n6 p657-70 Jun 1999
Study examined adverse effects of childhood sexual/physical abuse among substance-abusing women with children. Several significant differences between abused and nonabused women were found in service outcomes. Abused women had more problems relating to drug use and psychiatric/psychological adjustment at follow-up. Findings support a need for substance dependency treatment programs tailored for women who experienced childhood abuse. (Author/JDM)
