Women from all walks of life struggle with mental health and addiction. Unfortunately, many women don’t seek treatment or avoid addiction treatment programs because of unprocessed trauma. Mix-gender rehab can trigger trauma and addiction and make it difficult for someone to begin recovery. Gender-specific addiction treatment centers are increasingly popular among men and women as ways to provide a more comfortable community and treatment experience. Women’s rehab centers offer a safe, inclusive environment to help women recover together.
If you or a woman you love is struggling with addiction or mental health, know you are not alone. The team at a Better State can help. Our outpatient programs are here to provide comprehensive, holistic treatment for mental health, unprocessed trauma, and addiction. Call us now at 781.412.1488 to learn more about our women’s addiction treatment center and start feeling better today.
What Is a Women’s Addiction Treatment Center?
Women’s addiction treatment or drug rehab is just what it sounds like addiction recovery services designed for women. Most times, single-gendered rehab can provide clients with a safe and comfortable environment for clients to make the progress they need. Residential and outpatient programs provide women’s only programs that help women safely recover together.
Women’s rehab centers provide a range of treatment options. With a focus on mental health, detox, and preparing for a sober life, women connect with other women over shared experiences.
While every program provides unique treatment options and benefits, most women’s rehab programs include:
- Dual diagnosis treatment
- Group therapy
- Group activities
- Alumni groups
- Individual therapy
- Family therapy
- Alternative therapies
- Job training
- Relapse prevention
Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs), intensive outpatient programs (IOPs), and residential treatment programs provide these and other benefits for women seeking recovery in a space just for them. Most offer a dual diagnosis to simultaneously address mental health, disordered eating, self-harm, and addiction. This holistic approach helps women genuinely recover. Many women’s rehab programs also connect clients with women’s sober living homes for those who don’t have safe, sober living situations.
Benefits of Women’s Rehab Centers
The benefits of addiction treatment are endless. When women spend time with other women, they are more likely to understand their addiction and trauma experiences, make connections, and feel safer.
Women’s only addiction treatment provides a range of benefits, including:
- Solidarity among other women
- Group therapy with others who understand your life experience
- Fewer trauma triggers during treatment
- Safe, inclusive treatment
Unfortunately, domestic violence, unresolved trauma, and other issues specific to women often lead to substance use. While fewer women seek treatment than men, a women’s rehab center can help women build better relationships with themselves and those around them. Women’s rehab helps women reframe addiction stories, mirror a positive change in other women’s recovery, and build a lasting sober community with other women.
