This study aimed to identify reasons behind women’s drug addiction in the Palestinian society and the social and psychological issues that are associated with substance abuse and addiction. The study was conducted through in-depth open interviews with a group of female addicts and as well experienced social workers in the field of addiction. The most prominent result of the study is that women who have drug addicted family members are more likely to become drug addicts themselves and to suffer from psychological issues and or be subjected to violence. Consequently, the study recommends providing psychological, social and health services for women living in families with a drug addicted member.
