There are many benefits to a women’s drug rehab program. These programs are designed to support women in a gender-specific environment when they are struggling with a substance use disorder. Research has shown that women feel more comfortable around other female peers who are going through a similar experience and experiencing the same types of challenges surrounding their addiction. With fewer distractions, they can fully focus on their treatment and recovery. In many cases, addiction can stem from a toxic relationship with a member of the opposite sex.

Benefits of a Women's Rehab Program

A women’s rehab program provides a safe space for women to receive treatment for a substance use disorder and focus on their recovery without distractions. Relationship conflicts are one of the key causes of addiction in women and having that trigger exist when going through treatment and recovery can be counterproductive. Therapies in a women’s rehab have an extra focus on relationships and developing skills to recognize and avoid bad relationships in the future.

Benefits of a women’s rehab program include:

  • A safe environment where women feel supported by other women
  • Less distraction by removing members of the opposite sex from the experience
  • Peer-to-peer support, bonding, mentorship, and relationship-building
  • A customized plan unique to each person, including behavioral and experiential therapies
  • Both inpatient and outpatient options
  • Individual, group, and family therapy options
  • Extra layers of support, like medication-assisted treatment (MAT) where needed

Women's Rehab Program

There are different levels of rehab available depending on the severity of the addiction. Whatever option is chosen, treatment will allow women to:

  • Control cravings
  • Address triggers
  • Better manage mental and physical health
  • Fix financial issues
  • Repair important relationships

The two main types of rehab experiences are:

Residential Treatment

This type of treatment is for severe addictions and situations where women are unable to control cravings and cannot stop their addiction on their own. This usually requires a medically supervised detox to rid the body of the substance completely and safely manage the difficult withdrawal symptoms. Residential treatment involves 24/7 care in a safe, home-like environment free of distractions. A combination of traditional, behavioral and experiential therapies are used in each customized treatment plan. Length of stays can vary depending on the need. Typically 1 month to 3 months is the length of a residential stay. When extra support is needed, a transition to outpatient or sober living may be an option.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment programs include partial hospitalization programs (PHP) and intensive outpatient programs (IOP). The type of program depends on the level of care needed for the addiction and allows for more flexibility than a residential program. Some clients start with outpatient treatment if they do not need around-the-clock care and if they have responsibilities with work, school, or home that make it difficult to attend a residential program.

Outpatient care is also a great option to transition to after a residential treatment program is completed. Clients participate in therapy sessions around their schedule for a few hours a week while living at home or in sober living. The length of the programs varies, from a few weeks to a few months.

Addiction is a disease, and like any disease can affect women and men differently depending on environmental, genetic, and gender-specific factors. In many cases, addiction is a result of a toxic or abusive relationship issue. Therefore, the best course of treatment is separate men from the experience altogether. In a space where only women are treating other women, clients can feel comfortable talking about issues that impact women specifically. As a result, they can work together on learning and implementing coping skills to move forward in their treatment and recovery.

The goal of any rehab program is to avoid or overcome a relapse. A variety of therapies can treat a substance use disorder. These therapies can include:

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Experiential therapy
  • Holistic therapy
