The guidelines have now been translated to French to further support organizations that provide substance use treatment services for women. Trauma Matters: Guidelines for Trauma-Informed Practices in Women's Substance Use Services, will help you understand the interconnections of trauma and substance use, and provide better care for substance-involved women who have experienced trauma. The guidelines were developed by the Jean Tweed Centre, in consultation with service providers, experts, and women with lived experience from across Ontario.
