Addiction treatment for women deals with unique, addiction-related needs of a woman, helping her feel safe as she works through the pain of addiction. Sometimes, women who are drug addicts or alcoholics have been victims of sexual trauma or abuse. Research shows that women begin abusing drugs or alcohol after a specific traumatic event, and up to 70 percent of women in substance abuse treatment have histories of physical or sexual abuse.
The rates of women entering, staying in and completing treatment are far lower than those for men. The primary goal of women's addiction treatment is to provide a safe and comfortable place where women can focus on the process of healing and recovery. A drug rehab for women can also provide a supportive and understanding staff to help you detox while nurturing your mind, body and spirit. Call us today at 800-993-3869 and be embraced by caring counselors while you embark on this next sober chapter of your life.
There are many issues that relate to women, addiction and recovery that need specific attention such as body image, eating disorders, life fulfillment and potential and motherhood. Women also become addicted more quickly than men and get sicker faster than their male counterparts. They tend not to have the familial support at home during the treatment process and issues related to childcare can seem monumental. Women may want and seek help but they may be at risk of losing their children to state supervision. Without the appropriate support in the treatment program, such women are at risk of leaving treatment too early.
High quality women's addiction treatment focuses on building a woman's self-esteem and empowering her with the support and self-confidence she needs to achieve long-term recovery. Alcohol and drug rehab for women allow gender-related issues to be handled in individual or group therapy with other women, but may use coed meetings for other services. Sensitive issues are not exposed in a coed group, thus maintaining emotional safety and security for the recovering women. A drug rehab for women can provide a safe place to detox your body while nurturing your mind, body, and spirit with staff who understand the specific needs of women.
In a women's addiction treatment program, women who are battling addictions can bond with each other and this unique level of trust builds:
- A sense of community and understanding
- Trust, compassion and honesty
- Open and honest talk about women's issues and experiences
- Lifelong friendships
Women in alcohol and drug rehabs learn for the first time how to have supportive, nurturing relationships with other women. That, in turn, increases their own ability to listen and empathize, or to share negative thoughts that if kept secret will cause a relapse. In a drug rehab for women, a woman can find her voice for the first time, helping her to define who she is, what she wants and what she likes and dislikes.
