Extensive research suggests that women can benefit greatly from going to a “women’s only” drug treatment center because women experience drug and alcohol addiction differently than men do.
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 substance abuse 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).
