Women’s Rehab Program
What is the Women’s Rehab Program?
Our Women’s Rehab program is ideal for females seeking comprehensive, full-time substance use treatment. Complete with integrated, gender-specific campuses, our program is designed to offer a safe, supervised, therapeutic environment, to all of our clients.
Women receive the best care in a program designed just for them. Our staff are trained to recognize the unique challenges faced by women in recovery and will work to address these issues. The program includes many activities that are designed to help women process and address traumatic experiences from their lives and work on developing new skills to prepare for a successful return to the community. Our female Rehab program aims to promote sisterhood and focus on a common goal: lifelong sobriety.
According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, when women do develop substance abuse problems, they report problems of greater severity, experience more health-related consequences than men, and are less likely to seek specialized treatment for addiction. A huge benefit of our women’s rehab program is the opportunity for clients to be fully immersed in their healing and recovery process, without the distractions and stressors of regular, daily life. With staff and resources available 24/7, our clients are fully supported every step of the way.
The comfortable, private accommodations and scenic settings of our facilities provide the ideal environment for clients to focus on healing from substance use disorder and co-occurring mental health issues. Our facilities are located in scenic, rural areas, away from urban stressors and distractions. Furthermore, our staff members are dedicated to providing clients with the guidance and support they need to achieve their goals and maintain long-term sobriety.

Why is Rehab for Women Important?
Scientists studying substance abuse have discovered that women who take drugs may struggle with hormones, menstrual cycle, fertility, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and menopause issues. In addition, women report taking drugs for a variety of reasons, including to control their weight, fight fatigue, manage pain, and address mental health concerns. Other findings include:
- Women tend to use substances in different ways than men, such as using smaller amounts of certain drugs for a shorter period of time before becoming addicted.
- Frequent drug use can put women at risk for serious heart and blood vessel problems.
- Women may become more sensitive to some drugs because of sex hormones.
- Women may experience drug cravings and have higher relapse rates after treatment than men do.
- Women and men may experience brain alterations differently if they take drugs.
- Women may be more prone to visit the emergency room or to die from an overdose or other consequences from certain substances.
- Certain substances may increase the risk of panic attacks, anxiety, or depression in women.
- Substance use is increased among women who are victims of domestic violence.
- Women may use substances or develop a mental health disorder as a result of divorce, loss of child custody, or the death of a partner or child.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, Women report using some substances for a shorter period of time when they enter treatment. However, women’s substance use tends to progress more quickly from first use to addiction. Withdrawal may also be more intense for women.
Addiction research has historically only looked at substance abuse and alcoholism as they relate to men. Men have been the sole subjects of addiction studies for years. Female addiction has been a classic victim of medical bias. Several US organizations, including the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), required the inclusion of women in research as a result of initiatives in the 1990s. Scientists have found a number of differences between men and women with addiction as a result of including women in their studies.
Addiction can manifest itself in different ways in men or women, and the reason for this may be due to biological or societal influences. It has been hypothesized that we are shaped by the society in terms of gender (such as childcare duties, addiction stigma, relationship dynamics, etc.). Furthermore, male and female bodies react differently to substances as a result of biological differences, including testosterone and estrogen production, body size and composition, and other factors.
