Low esteem, stress
lead women to drugs

Susan T. slides into her favorite chair
after work. Before her husband and
kids get home she reaches for a glass
of water and gulps down three Valium.
Her doctor prescribed the pills to
relieve tension when she started a new
job a year ago. Today, Susan can't wind
down without drugs.
This pattern is common among large
number of women who are addicted to
drugs. Low self esteem, unequal treat-
ment from employers, and a fear of ex-
pressing anger can cause a woman to
turn to drugs, according to a recent
study on drug abuse among women.
WHILE studies in past years have
shown that men tend to use drugs for
"pleasure and social reasons;" more
women today are using drugs just to
survive, says University Social Work
Prof. Beth Reed.
Reed and two other researchers
compiled an 1,100-page guide entitled
"Treatment Services for Drug Depen-
dent Women," to help people who treat
drug abusers, based on years of
nationwide studies on women addicts.
The two-volume book, published by
the National Institute on Drug Abuse,
gives examples, detailed case histories,
and practical suggestions for treating
the special problems of women drug

DRUG addiction among women is
usually related to stress caused by
home and work situations.
"Women as a group have lower in-
comes, less consistent work histories,
and are less likely to have a work-
related identity," says Reed. These are
key factors which contribute to low self
esteem, she says.
The book outlines how a woman can
be more assertive and independent insa
society which discourages these
quslities in females, she says.
ALTHOUGH the book does not target
drug abuse among college' women,
Reed says the manual is useful for drug
counselors who treat female college st-
The high level of stress that college
students experience can make them
vulnerable to drug addiction, Reed
"Often it was their problems and
stress that began their slide into
chemical dependency in the first
place," she says.
The book includes a step-by-step
procedure for treating women drug
abusers, which is valuable for coun-
selors, administrators and other human
services professionals, Reed says.

loss of state funds since 1980.
"IT'S A terrific shot in the arm com-
pared to past years," said Frye, "but
our ebullience shouldn't run away from
"We can't build a budget on a 9 per-
cent (increase) if there's danger we
could get a state increase of 5, 3 or 1 pe-
rcent," he added.
Even with the 9 percent increase in
state funds, the University's budget will
be "extremely tight," because of rising
inflation and high utility costs, Frye
THE UNIVERSITY cannot adopt a

tuition increase which would be
less than the inflation rate, which Frye
estimates to be 5 percent.
The Regents will approve the Univer-
sity's 1983-84 budget at the July
meeting, including the tuition increase.
unless it is uncertain that the 9 percent
state hike will not be passed in the
The House is expected to vote on the
budget and send it back to Blanchard
for final approval by July.
Blanchard's proposal includes a 9
percent increase to Michigan State and
Wayne universities, and a 7.5 percent
increase to smaller state schools.

Visitors from down under
Sixteen visitors from "the land down under" invaded the Ann Arbor's
streets yesterday, during a brief stop that is part of a four-week tour of North
America. Armed with cameras, members of the Perth, Australia West
Australian Field Hockey team could be seen touring the University and the
shops on State Street. Team members said they liked Ann Arbor, where they
have stayed for two days. "It's very pleasant," said Alan Pillinger, a mem-
ber of the team. "It's given us an opportunity to recover from our last stop,
which was New York." The team gave clinics at local high schools yesterday
and will play in an exhibition in Toronto today.
