Women face a unique and specific set of risks that render them particularly vulnerable to SUD. Between the biological difference that may render them more tolerant and drugs and alcohol than men and the cultural gender-related adversity they have to face on a daily basis, such as higher risks of sexual assault, discrimination, and more, women need targeted and specific care that addresses their distinct substance use origins and triggers. Specific women’s rehabs have become an increasingly common tool to help female sufferers of SUD feel safe, respected, and empowered during their treatment process. Facilities are increasingly offering gender-specific treatment.
Women-only rehab can be administered in both an inpatient and outpatient setting. In the context of residential treatment, patients in women’s rehabs stay in all-female housing and often receive care from predominantly female staff. Women’s rehabs help patients identify, address, and successfully manage the general and gender-specific obstacles in their lives that have led to and sustained their substance use while giving them a behavioral template to avoid relapse, recognize stressors, and live independently in recovery.
If you or a woman you care about is struggling with SUD, women’s rehabs can help provide the specialized and compassionate care you need to start healing.
