Women . . .
Do you think you might drink too much?

Is your drinking hurting your relationships and negatively affecting your life? You may be eligible to participate in a free treatment research program specifically designed for women.

  • We offer two types of therapy (small women's group or individual treatment sessions).
  • These treatment programs are specifically designed to help women with alcohol problems become sober and stay sober.
  • While most treatment and research on alcohol problems has been done with men, we understand that women with drinking problems have special needs and may require a different focus in treatment.
  • Women and men have different problems from drinking alcohol.
  • Women are more likely to drink alone and to drink when they feel guilty and ashamed because of their drinking, have low self-esteem, and feel unsupported by their families.
  • Women have greater rates of depression and anxiety as well as exposure to trauma and domestic violence.
The Rutgers Women's Treatment Project is a special treatment and research program funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) for women with alcohol problems.
