If you are a woman who is battling with substance abuse and addiction and you are considering rehab and treatment programs, you will find that there are a lot of options to choose from. The location of the facility, the setting of the treatment center and the type of treatments that a rehab offers are all important factors that you are going to want to take into consideration when choosing a rehab center. Because your choice of both a rehab center and treatment plan is crucial to your recovery, call us today to learn more about your options and how we can make this process as easy as possible.
There is, however, another important consideration that you should take into account when choosing a rehab treatment program: whether it’s a mixed gender or a female only rehab facility.
While we offer many different mixed gender facilities that may be beneficial and provide the tools that are needed to attain sobriety, many women find that a center that provides treatment specifically for women offers more profound benefits, which means that the chances of becoming and remaining sober are higher.

What is a Women Rehab Center?
Women who are suffering from addiction face a variety of issues, and they are much different than the issues that men face. As such, the treatment that they require in order to overcome substance abuse and addiction is also much different than the treatment that men require. Some of the issues that relate to women who are battling addiction that require specific attention include:
- Body image
- Eating disorders
- Sexual abuse
- Life fulfillment
- Challenges with reproduction
Women who enter treatment centers usually have mental, social and behavioral problems that are more severe than men who enter treatment centers. These issues, along with many others, can cause women to use drugs and alcohol as a means of escape. Given the fact that women become addicted to drugs and alcohol faster than men, and given the fact that drug and alcohol addiction and abuse impacts women differently than it does men, it is important for women to receive treatment that is tailored to their specific needs. Call us today to learn more about our women-specific rehab facilities and treatment programs.
Gender specific rehab centers offer many benefits for women. They provide them with the medical supervision that they need while going through the process of detoxification, the first step of the recovery process. They also provide counseling, therapy and other programs that are designed to meet the needs of women.
The Benefits of Women Only Rehabilitation Programs
There are a number of benefits that women only rehab centers provide over mixed gender facilities.
A Safe Space
Women who are victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse often turn to drugs and alcohol to escape the trauma that they have experienced. Often, these women do not feel safe when they are around men, especially men that they do not know. Our women-only rehab centers provide women with a safe space where they don’t have to worry about being victimized.
Less Sexual Pressure and Temptation
For a lot of women, relationships with men and sex can be distracting, which can lead to trouble when they are trying to get sober. Often, their recovery process is derailed when temptation from the male sex is present. Our partners who offer rehabilitation exclusively for women provide females with an opportunity to temporarily remove themselves from these distractions, which may have also fueled their addiction. When women are free of sexual pressure and temptation, they are better able to focus on their recovery. Women are also learn skills and strategies that will help them better handle and relate to men after they leave rehab, better preparing them for a life that is free of alcohol and/or drug use and improving their chances of remaining sober.
Empowerment plays a big part in recovery. Those who are addicted to drugs and alcohol needs to feel as if they are capable of and have the power to overcome their addiction and take control of their lives without drugs and alcohol. In mixed gender rehab centers, it can be difficult for women to feel empowered. In a women only rehab center, females empower one another; they provide one another with support, build up one another’s self esteem and help each other feel as if they can take control of their lives, void of alcohol and drugs.

Focused on the Needs of Women
Studies have found that addiction affects women much differently that it affects men. Women metabolize and react to substances differently than men do. This means that women have unique challenges when it comes to getting sober and staying sober. A women’s rehab center will take the unique needs of women into account. Instead of providing generalized support, therapy and programs, women receive the care and support that is specific to their needs in order to assist them in the recovery process. To learn more about your specific needs in a rehab program, call us today to speak with a trained treatment specialist.
Additionally, women rehab programs also understand that the unique challenges that women face can contribute to their addiction. Challenges such as body image, eating disorders, sexual assault and trauma are all taken into consideration in women only rehab centers, and the therapies and programs that are offered can provide the assistance that is needed to overcome these challenges, and hence, overcome addiction.
