In 2010, 32.2 % of people who were admitted to Iowa 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 Iowa. This means many more women than have been recorded struggle with addiction. There are treatment facilities that are for women only. Some women find being in a mixed-gender treatment facility inhibits 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 makes 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 have a normal life, if it is damaging your relationships with your family, loved ones, and those around you, seek treatment.
