Let's talk about women and addiction on our latest Stop and Search podcast.

Join journalist and author, Jenny Valentish, as she travels over from Australia to talk about her new book Woman of Substances, a journey into drugs and alcohol treatment, a fascinating book which has been highly recommended and critically acclaimed.

We’re also joined by Milly Chowles, reporter and producer for BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour. Having recently produced the series The Fix: Woman and Addiction, Milly is certainly a valued member of the panel.

So what are we talking about? We’ll be chatting about the many overlapping factors of addiction, including mental health, social pressures, as well as talking about the media, the treatment sector, and what part gender may play in this broad conversation.
