When treating women’s addiction, it’s vital to address the unique gender-specific issues that contribute to substance abuse. It’s true that a higher percentage of men use and abuse substances, but a higher percentage of women move from casual drug use to a full-blown addiction where they rely on the drug or alcohol to function. This transition to addiction for women stems from many factors, including mental health disorders, eating disorders, and past trauma. Because substance use increases dopamine in the brain, it creates a feeling of euphoria that gives women a temporary escape from the demons that may be haunting them. Unfortunately, this leads down a destructive path as the body craves and depends on the substance even more.
The women’s rehab center at Solution Based Treatment provides women with a safe space that is free of the distractions that mixed-sex programs can have. It’s even more of a challenge for women to recover from addiction if the trauma that led to their addiction was caused by men. Our treatment team at SBT is standing by to answer any questions you may have about women and addiction, so contact us today by calling 833.999.1941 or completing our online form.
Women and Addiction
For many women, substance use starts to mask other trauma or stressors in their lives. Addiction happens when they quickly become entirely dependent on the substance and can’t stop using it on their own. Allowing clients to focus on their own gender-specific needs through gender-specific treatment has proven wholly beneficial. These needs include:
- Providing an environment to receive treatment and recover where women feel safe
- Having trusted mentors and advocates supporting them through the process
- Keeping the focus on what truly matters to women
- Being more inclusive of all women, no matter race or sexual orientation
- Removing gender tensions between men and women
At SBT, our addiction treatment specialists understand women and addiction. It’s one thing to stop using the substance, but it’s another thing to address the factors that lead to addiction. That’s where the therapies offered at SBT can make a difference, especially for women. The programs and services we offer are specifically designed to address these factors and help women overcome their addictions and find their way to recovery.
