What Problems Do Women Face In Addiction?

A woman’s experience with addiction can be markedly different from a man’s. For example, women use smaller amounts of drugs and alcohol for less time than men before they become addicted. They may also develop strong cravings for drugs and alcohol in less time than men normally do. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, women are more likely to relapse after rehab. These differences between men and women present a challenge, which is why we approach women’s treatment a bit differently than men’s. For unique problems, women need unique solutions. Our Women’s Addiction Treatment Program is designed to help you heal past traumas, address self-destructive behaviors, and heal in a safe environment. Here are some problems women face in addiction:

  • Women tend to get addicted faster due to their physiology.
  • Women are more likely to relapse after rehab.
  • Women may be more likely to overdose from certain illicit substances.
  • Women who are victims of domestic abuse are at risk of substance abuse.

Full recovery is possible with the right help and finding the best rehab facility will boost the chances of reaching a healthy and successful outcome.

Contact us today at the Safe Harbor Treatment Center to speak with one of our Treatment Consultants for assistance.

When you arrive at the facility, you’ll be medically and psychologically examined. This assessment is to establish a baseline, and we use it to determine the nature of your treatment. From there, you’ll undergo a detox, which typically lasts 3-14 days.
Our treatment is founded on one principle: Giving you the lifelong skills needed to overcome addiction and live a free, vibrant life. We’re believers in true holistic therapies that truly unite the mind, body, and spirit. Each week, you will meet one-on-one with your case manager, psychiatrist, and spiritual director. Best of all, you’re in a comfortable setting that’s far disconnected from the outside world. We give you the protection and privacy needed to heal in peace.

We treat the mind by administering behavioral-based psychotherapy. Cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy will alter your attitudes and disable negative thought patterns. You’ll have a dedicated psychiatrist to help you find new, better ways to deal with trauma and establish positive thinking habits.
We treat the body through an assortment of physical training and restorative yoga. We hold many of our fitness sessions on the beach, which is only a few miles from the facility.
We treat the spirit through meditation and coaching from our spiritual director. We believe addiction is a symptom of “Soul Sickness”, so it’s crucial that we treat this by nourishing the soul and helping you connect with your most authentic self.

Some will say that your rehabilitation won’t truly begin until you leave the treatment center, so we emphasize the aftercare process. The aftercare plan will include ongoing therapy, participation in a support group, and other components based on individual needs, such as vocational training or educational assistance.


Why Our Women’s Addiction Treatment is Essential

For women, one of the major triggers of addiction is trauma. One of the central tenets of our program is getting to the bottom of your trauma. Many of the women who have entered our program have experienced various levels of domestic abuse, which later led to drug and alcohol abuse. A women-only program allows women to heal their trauma in peace.

If you’re pregnant, you may fare better in a woman-only program because of the added privacy and a medical team that can help manage your pregnancy during your rehabilitation.
Women who are undergoing menopausal changes often benefit from a gender-exclusive rehab environment. Our Woman’s Program promotes confidence and safety as women progress through menopause.
