Women in AL
As of 2010, according to statistics by SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration), 31.7% of all those admitted for substance abuse treatment in Alabama were women. Substance abuse affects every sector of society. If you are struggling with dependence or addiction to drugs or alcohol, it is time to seek help. Look through our website to see the list of treatment facilities available in Alabama. We encourage you to speak to representatives of each treatment facility to see if their program suits your needs, and whether you would prefer a women-only treatment option. A women-only treatment center allows some women to feel freer about discussing their problems and experiences in a group setting. Women are more susceptible to certain mental disorders so women-only treatment facilities are able to develop a dual diagnosis program beneficial to all patients. There are certain topics, which affect, or have happened to, women more frequently, so group therapy sessions in a women-only treatment center can spend more time discussing those topics than can a mixed gender treatment facility.
If your dependence on alcohol or drugs has taken over every aspect of your life, it is time to seek treatment. Addiction destroys families and lives. Don’t let that happen to you. Browse our website to read about the different treatment options and treatment facilities available to you.
