Key message

The Norwegian Health Directorate commissioned the Norwegian Knowledge Centre for the Health Services to conduct a systematic literature search with subsequent sorting of relevant publications.

The task was to identify new studies published after the Knowledge Centre’s report from 2009 about the effect of gender-segregated treatment for substance abuse. The report included one systematic review of low methodological quality which found that gender-segregated treatment can reduce attrition from treatment and improve mental health, but the results must be interpreted with caution.

Results

The search for systematic reviews resulted in a total of 857 references. Six were considered possibly relevant. After full text reading,  no new systematic reviews were included, but we chose to include three single studies.
