A lack of personal hygiene tends to accompany a drug addiction. Failure to maintain personal hygiene can then result in dental damage, brittle hair, dry skin, intestinal problems, constipation, malnutrition, and other health complications. Procter & Gamble recently partnered with Gibson Center to provide Women’s Health Education to women in recovery. Women’s Health Education provide women’s health and hygiene education as part of their treatment program at Gibson Center in order to aid in their understanding of how to reduce health risks through the practice of health behaviors. Women participated in an inventory of positive of negative health and hygiene practices and developed a plan for attaining personal health and hygiene goals. The support received by Procter & Gamble helped reduce the financial and human cost that our community spends on medical treatment related to poor health and hygiene practices often associated with substance use. Thank you Procter & Gamble for your support!
