Trauma Matters: Guidelines for Trauma-Informed Practices in Women’s Substance Use Services

This document presents fundamental information about trauma-informed practices. It sets out evidence-informed practices for all organizations that are funded by Local Health Integration Networks to provide substance use services for women. The guidelines should be used wherever women receive substance use services—in both mixed-gender and women-only service environments, and in all types of substance use services (e.g. withdrawal management, assessment and referral, residential, and community-based services).
