Not only do women have different biological responses and co-occurring factors, they also turn to drugs and alcohol for different reasons. Women have different predisposing risk factors, psychological disorders, and family and social risk factors than men that can lead to chemical dependency. Our women’s program specializes in trauma, which often goes hand-in-hand with drug and alcohol addiction.
Trauma caused by sexual, physical, or emotional abuse is extremely common among female alcohol and drug abusers and can lead to depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, shame, guilt, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
For women, addiction and trauma are often inter-related, so an effective substance abuse treatment approach has to address all of these issues at once.
