Alcohol use among women is on the rise. Women who drink have a higher risk of certain alcohol-related problems compared to men. It is important that women be aware of health risks.

The pandemic has increased isolation and anxiety, and has created fertile ground for alcohol misuse, aided by the social norms that deceive us into believing it’s okay to drink when we’re stressed.

We’ll have a conversation about:
• why alcohol is innocuous for some women and devastating for others
• how to know when the line has been crossed from moderate to alcoholic drinking
• how to support those we love, seek help when needed, and explore treatment options

Our special guest will be Karen Moser, LCSW, PAT

Karen is a licensed clinical social worker who is a graduate of Bryn Mawr College School of Social Work and Social Research. She began her career in the addictions field where she worked in inpatient dual diagnosis rehabilitation centers, and later created and directed an intensive outpatient program for the treatment of addiction and mental health.

We’ll also hear from a woman in recovery from alcohol use disorder.

This program is funded by the Montgomery County Office of Drug & Alcohol.
