Obstacles like not having a strong support system and not being able to find someone to care for their kids while away can make treatment difficult – if not impossible – for women. While each center is unique, there are a few things to look for in a treatment center for women.
1.Treatment for the Whole Person.
A program that address the physical and psychological aspects of addiction are the most effective for women.
2. Supportive Therapy.
Women often define themselves by their relationships and connections, so finding a nurturing and empathetic therapist is very important.
3. Treatment for Addiction During Pregnancy.
Pregnancy can make treatment more difficult and the center should offer medical visits and medically-assisted detox when needed.
4. Gender of Treatment Professionals.
Some women may feel safer with female professionals, especially if they have a history of physical or sexual abuse.
5. Addresses Gender-Exclusive Relapse Risks.
