The first step in the recovery process is seeking help and finding the right rehab program to help you achieve sobriety. A woman’s experience with addiction is often different from a man’s experience and circumstances. Many women feel more comfortable when surrounded by other women. Addiction is a very personal and vulnerable thing to work through. It is essential that clients feel safe, supported, and respected. At Rise Above Treatment, we understand the specific issues and challenges women face in life and with their addiction. We provide female clients with a safe and understanding environment to achieve sobriety and learn how to maintain lifelong recovery. Clients start with our drug and alcohol detox center and work through the other addiction treatment programs we offer.
What Is a Women’s Rehab Program?
A women’s rehab program is designed to meet women’s needs to help them achieve lasting sobriety. Women are more likely to experience sexual trauma or domestic violence than men, which can directly impact their recovery. Female clients go through detox, participate in residential treatment, an outpatient treatment program, and receive counseling. Our women’s rehab program in Murrieta, California, provides women with a supportive place to heal. We take an integrated treatment approach with evidence-based programs and services.
5 Benefits of a Women’s Rehab Program
1. A Comfortable Environment
Women struggling with addiction are often vulnerable and may not be comfortable around men. At a women’s rehab program center, our female clients are around other women facing similar experiences. We also have a large team of female counselors and nurses to work with our female clients and ensure they are as comfortable as possible while receiving treatment and going through recovery.
2. A Sense of Safety and Security
An unhealthy environment or negative relationships can be contributing factors that lead to addiction. At Rise Above Treatment, we offer our female clients a sense of safety and security through our women’s rehab program. Being around other women can ease anxiety and allows our female clients to focus on their recovery.
3. Programs that Address The Unique Issues Women Face
In their lives and their struggles with addiction, women encounter gender-specific experiences and expectations. These are things men will never experience or can have a difficult time understanding. A woman’s rehab program addresses women’s unique issues that can impact their recovery. Some of these gender-specific challenges women only experience or are more likely to experience include:
- Motherhood and childbirth
- Domestic violence
- Sexual assault or harassment
- Misogyny in the workplace
- Eating disorders and body image issues
Working through these gender-specific issues in a women-only environment can make the process easier and more effective.
4. A Healthy Support Group
In group therapy and support groups, women can feel comfortable opening up and sharing their experiences. This is an essential part of the reflecting and recovery process. Being surrounded by women who have faced similar challenges and gone through similar things can be reassuring and helpful for many female clients. Group settings allow clients to establish a healthy peer support group to go through recovery together and hold each other accountable.
5. Developing Confidence and Improving Self-Esteem
When a woman struggling with addiction decides to seek treatment, they likely do not have much confidence in themselves and their ability to stay sober. At a women’s rehab program center, female clients are in a positive and supportive environment where they can build their confidence and improve their self-esteem. This is critical for being able to achieve sobriety and maintain lifelong recovery.
