Women in IN
In 2010, 35.5% of people who were admitted to Indiana treatment facilities for substance abuse were women, according to SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration). Rates for unmet need of treatment, in which people who struggle with substance abuse issues do not go for treatment, are also high in Indiana. This means many more women than have been recorded struggle with addiction. If you are struggling with alcohol and/or drug addiction, know that you are not alone. There are treatment facilities which are women-only facilities. These are popular for a lot of women. Some women find being in a mixed-gender treatment facility stifles their ability to share openly in group therapy sessions, as they feel more self-conscious in a mixed gender setting. Being in a women-only treatment facility helps them feel more comfortable to talk about their experiences in a group therapy session. Women are more likely to have co-occurring mental health issues, so women-only treatment facilities often have more of a focus on Dual Diagnosis treatment.
If you feel that your dependence on, or addiction to, alcohol and/or drugs is affecting your ability to lead a normal life, if it is impacting your relationships with your family, loved ones, and those around you, seek treatment.
