Addiction Treatment for Women
Women face unique challenges when overcoming substance abuse. For decades, research on the subject did not consider the specific ways in which drugs and alcohol affected the sexes differently. The movement to understand addiction and treatment in women has made great strides. Our medical professionals and dedicated staff at our Oregon rehab designed for women are prepared to help you, or the woman in your life, find the treatment that is scientifically designed for women.
In the last 35 years, addiction and recovery experts have begun to implement strategies in addiction services which do not ignore gender differences. Previous treatment techniques did not take into account the specific needs and characteristics of women. Integrating childcare services, prenatal and postnatal medical attention, and women-only treatment has significantly benefited recovery rates for women.
Nationwide, recent data has shown only 37% of treatment facilities offer a gender specific women’s drug and alcohol program. While this is an improvement from the past, the highly individual-specific nature of addiction should compel all substance abuse treatment programs to offer gender-specific options. The data is clear. Women deserve high-quality treatment designed to give them the best chance at recovery. The addiction professionals at Awakenings by the Sea’s women’s drug and alcohol program are ready to help you or a loved one find the best road to recovery through our addiction treatment program for women.
