Notes: 
Includes bibliographical references and index. --- Co-published simultaneously as Journal of lesbian studies, volume 9, number 3, 2005. --- Review, April 2006: Lesbians and bisexual women are more likely than heterosexual women to report alcohol and substance abuse, yet existing alcohol and drug services are inadequate to meet the needs of this community. Substance use for these women is often enmeshed in issues relating to sexual orientation, gender identity, and/or making connections with queer people and communities. Lesbian substance users aren't able to bring forward the whole of their experiences when they are in environments that are non-supportive and where they experience homophobia. They become invisible. This book is a step in helping to create environments in which the hurt of invisibility can begin to be healed. The various papers captured here highlight how a lesbian sensitive perspective on lesbian health and substance use can shed new light on this neglected research area, as well as illuminate important areas of concern for treaters and researchers alike.
