Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment for Women
Tailored for Women
Women face unique issues when facing a drug addiction. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, in 2014, almost 16 million women used illicit drugs during the past year. A women-only rehab can give support and power back to females while recovering from an addiction. Being around women with similar issues gives female patients the comfort and acceptance needed to flourish in recovery.
There are several challenges women face when going into rehab:
Every 3 minutes, a female goes to the ER for prescription pain killer abuse (CDC)
Women develop a dependence to abusive drugs faster than men
Women enter treatment with more severe mental, social, and behavioral problems than men
Women can harm their child when abusing drugs and alcohol during pregnancy
Drug addiction also uniquely affects pregnant women: The use of alcohol during pregnancy can cause Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, which causes distinctive facial features and learning disabilities in babies.
The use of opioids during pregnancy can cause low birth weight and breathing problems for the infant. It can also cause Neonatal Alcohol Syndrome, which occurs when the infant becomes dependent on opioids due to the mother’s drug abuse.

No Holding Back
Women’s rehab centers offer many benefits to women. Having space from friends and family can provide a much needed break for women needing to reevaluate their relationships. Being away from the opposite sex and around other female patients reduces distraction in recovery. Each patient will find fellow wives, mothers, and daughters in recovery, looking to share their fears and struggles with women who understand.
According to NIDA, women who are victims of domestic violence are more likely to engage in substance abuse.
Dealing with the trauma of abuse and addiction is both challenging and crucial for those women. Being in a female-oriented rehab can be a crucial part of recovery for victims. When facing trauma, being around patients of the opposite sex may be stressful and uncomfortable. In a women-only rehab, the effects of abuse begin their end at the door.
