According to a 2010 report by SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration), 35.1% of those admitted for substance abuse treatment in Illinois were women. Wives, mothers, daughters and sisters, can all struggle with alcohol and/or drug addiction. You do not have to suffer in silence. If you are struggling with substance abuse issues, talk to someone and seek help. There are a number of treatment facilities in Illinois which cater exclusively to women. Women-only treatment centers are popular. Often, being in a mixed gender environment stops women from feeling comfortable enough to discuss their substance abuse history, experiences, and other issues in a group therapy setting. Being amongst other women helps them to share and actively take part in group settings. In a women-only treatment center, more time can be spent discussing issues which seem to predominantly affect women than could be done in a mixed gender treatment center. Finally, women are more likely than men to have a co-occurring mental health disorder; women-only treatment centers can be more equipped to treat dual diagnosis cases.
You do not have to let your dependence on alcohol and/or drugs destroy your life and the lives of those you care about. You can gain control over your life again. Please call one of the Illinois treatment centers listed on our website to discuss treatment options, to find out whether a women-only treatment center would be ideal for you, and to begin your treatment today.
