Mothers Seeking Substance Abuse Services: Analysis Including Justice-Involved Women

Erika Kates, Ph.D.

Lunchtime Seminar (51:18 min.)

Erika KatesIn this seminar, Dr. Kates presented two types of data focused on mothers admitted to substance abuse services by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. The first source is a large state database that allows for an analysis of many women’s characteristics and experiences. The second source relies on focus groups held by Dr. Kates with women staying in recovery houses. Dr. Kates reviewed the data and discussed whether, and how, women who have become involved with the justice system—some with many incarcerations—differ from women who do not become involved with the police, courts, and corrections.

Erika Kates, Ph.D. is a senior research scientist at Wellesley Centers for Women working in two major research areas—justice and gender with a focus on women and low-income women’s access to education. She has extensive experience in policy analysis and research, focusing mainly on low-income women, women of color, and immigrants.
