Rehab for Women. Women-Only Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers
While on your journey to finding the perfect drug and alcohol rehab for you, you may find that some factors are more important to you than others. Whether it is the location of the rehab facility, some of the amenities offerings, or the fact that it is women-only, finding what clicks for you is an important part of treatment. Keep reading to learn more about why choosing a women-only drug and alcohol rehab center can be beneficial to your recovery.
Rehab for Women Addresses Unique Underlying Causes
Females have different risk factors for addiction than men do. As such, choosing a rehab for women can be beneficial to target these unique underlying causes and risk factors for addiction. Some of these include:
- Low self-esteem. During childhood and young adulthood, body image and social issues can cause debilitating stress. Weight loss, appearing outgoing, and wanting to fit in and be trendy with drug and alcohol use are all very common reasons that teenage women use substances.
- Standards of society. These issues don’t go away after graduation day either — they are common reasons grown women use substances to fit into society’s standards. This heavy substance use to mask the symptoms of low self-esteem can cause ongoing issues and trigger addiction.
- Trauma. Nearly 1 in 5 women have experienced completed or attempted rape during their lifetime and 1 in 4 women have been victims of severe physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime.
- Family responsibility. Running a household, demanding schedules, being a mother with children, or being pregnant, also come with their own set of unique challenges that only women understand. One of the hardest things about coming to treatment is leaving your children behind, and our village of women will be here to help carry you through.
A Safe, Stress-Free Environment
Our women-only drug and alcohol rehab center offers women a safe space to complete treatment. Women who experience the above unique underlying causes for addiction may find it triggering to cohabitate with men at such a vulnerable time.
Being among other women can help ease the strain of your traumas. You may have experienced sexual trauma, domestic violence, or another type of pressure due to a male in your life. By surrounding yourself with a loving village of women, you will be able to relate to their stories, gain new mentors, and have people on your side as advocates to help you for life. You will also find fulfillment in returning that advocacy for someone else with your story, which you will feel more open and honest telling in a group setting if the individuals were women only. This openness and honesty in treatment is the key to a successful treatment stay.
Women Only Staff
Surrounding yourself with your peers isn’t just through other clients who are receiving treatment — it is right down to the all-female staff, as well. Our expert staff of all women will welcome you with open arms. Our female Doctors, Psychiatrists, Clinicians, Counselors, and staff have one goal, and that is to get you on the road to lasting recovery.
