What differences do women face when it comes to substance use, addiction, and treatment? We could not be more thrilled to speak to two very knowledgeable women:

  • Jenny Valentish is a journalist and author originally from the UK who now lives in Australia. She's the author book 'Woman of Substances: A journey into drugs, alcohol and treatment'.

  • Milly Chowles is a radio reporter and producer. Having worked on BBC Radio 4's Women's Hour, Milly has produced a series called 'The Fix' which gives personal insight into women in recovery.

Both Milly and Jenny are so beautifully honest in this conversation, both of them having had their own experiences with addiction. It's interesting to hear about the differences in language and treatment options. This is truly a fascinating conversation.
