Report on the The Expert Panel on Women and Alcohol that worked to identify the current supports available to Ontario women, current best practices, and key recommendations regarding treatment services for women with problematic alcohol use. Delivers four key messages:  Young women are drinking at progressively higher levels and are at increased risk for experiencing alcohol-related problems; Ontario has effective gender-sensitive treatment services, but services are not available to women in all regions of the province; stigma is a major barrier for women needing treatment for alcohol misuse and interferes with women seeking help; and better guidance and training for primary care should be a focus for immediate improvement.
