In recent years, incarceration for substance misuse has increased, while treatment has been limited. Nationwide, the female incarcerated population is the fastest growing correctional population, according to the statistics provided by the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency (CSOSA) in 2015. The Correctional Association of New York (the CA) also found that the majority of women in prison are survivors of domestic violence and childhood abuse. This presentation focuses on the intersection between substance misuse and abuse within the incarcerated female population.
