Women’s Drug Rehab Centers for Substance Addiction 

While both sexes can become addicted to drugs, each has their own experiences that led up to their addiction and experiences they had surrounding their addiction. Women have their own set of needs when it comes to the treatment of substance use disorder. Women’s rehab programs provide a safe place for women of all ages to recover from substance abuse where they can have their specific needs met. 

The Need for Women’s Drug Rehab Centers 

Some women who suffer from drug and alcohol addiction have had traumatic experiences; therefore, providing a rehab center where they can feel safe is important. Sexual and physical abuse is not uncommon for a person who is heavily addicted to a substance such as heroin or cocaine. A women’s drug rehab center also provides the care that pregnant women require during their recovery to give their baby the best chance at a normal life. Childcare services are also available at most rehab centers when a patient has children that have to be looked after while their mothers undergo intensive treatment. Women can share a connection with other females in the center, providing understanding and empathy during their recovery.  

Differences between the Sexes in Addiction 

According to the National Institute on alcohol abuse and alcoholism, women tend to face more barriers when trying to find treatment for their addiction. They are less likely to find specialized treatment, but more likely to find general mental health care than men are. As a result, women tend to have poorer treatment outcomes than men. Research points to gender-specific treatment being more effective at treating substance use disorder than a mixed-gender program. Men tend to become addicts more than women but women usually develop an addiction faster than men. Further studies have shown that due to the hormone estrogen, women feel the rewards of drugs more so than men do. Furthermore, the occurrence of certain co-occurring mental disorders with particular types of addictions is more likely in women than in men, such as clinical depression and prescription painkiller addiction.
