How does substance abuse education affect Black Women's substance use in College
Northern Kentucky University
"This is a social problem that effects everyone either directly or indirectly. It is a cause that needs a lot of constant attention due to the overwhelming amount of adults and children affected by either alcohol or substance misuse. This is a disease that we can use prevention to educate in schools, churches, and community partners. Literature shows us that there is a delay in services and limited research for the non-white people who are diagnosed with substance use disorder. The lack and delay in healthcare, preventative, and educational resources, result in Black women to have a higher rate of medical issues, such as cirrhosis, respiratory complications."
