What Can I Expect from Addiction Treatment for Women

Women across the country and here in New Hampshire struggle with substance use and addiction. Unfortunately, many women don’t seek treatment. Lack of time, support, stigmas, and fear of co-ed recovery spaces can keep many women from the treatment they need. Luckily, women’s addiction treatment centers provide safe, inclusive spaces for women to recover together.

If you or a woman you love is struggling with addiction or mental health, our women’s addiction treatment program in New Hampshire can help. Call us now at 781.412.1488 to learn more about how A Better State can help you or someone you love thrive through holistic treatment.

What Is Women’s Addiction Treatment?

Addiction treatment services are just what they sound like: recovery programs for women. Often, single-gendered addiction treatment centers can provide clients the comfort and safety they need to begin treatment without the stigmas, pressures, and triggers of non-gendered programs. Many treatment centers offer inpatient and outpatient options to help women with step-down treatment, flexibility, and the right amount of care for their recovery needs.

What to Expect from Women’s Addiction Treatment Centers

There are two types of recovery programs for women: residential and outpatient. Residential or inpatient house women for several weeks, often during initial detox and recovery. These centers can provide a safe space for women to take time away from work, home, school, and various relationships in their life. For some, it can afford the opportunity to leave an unsafe home environment or relationship. Residential treatment centers provide daily individual and group therapy, community meals, and other activities to help women recover together. Some programs include art therapy, music therapy, and dance as supplements to cognitive behavioral and dialectal behavioral therapies.

Outpatient treatment provides the same therapies with a more flexible treatment schedule. They exist at several government-regulated levels, the most restricted being PHP or partial hospitalization. In these programs, women gather for a set number of hours at the clinic each day and return home at night to sleep. Because women return home after treatment, it’s essential to have a safe, drug-free home, a high level of independence, and a support system at home. Many women transition from residential to outpatient care to continue treatment while reintegrating into home life.

Both types of women’s addiction treatment can provide the following:

  • Solidarity among other women
  • Safe, inclusive spaces for treatment and healing
  • Group therapy with others who understand your life experience
  • Fewer trauma triggers during treatment
  • Community

Women’s treatment programs allow clients to reframe addiction stories, mirror a positive change in each other’s recovery, and build lasting communities with other sober women.
