There are drug and alcohol abuse treatment centers that offer programs designated just for men or just for women. These separate programs allow for the focus to be on the unique needs of either male or female addicts. Up until recently female populations were not included in the studies of substance abuse research. It was found that women often delay seeking treatment for their drug abuse because of child rearing responsibilities, a limited income and dependency on partners who are also drug users.
Drug treatment programs designed for women reflect these common concerns by offering support and services relating to abuse, co-dependency, childcare and emotional trauma. If you think you could benefit from gender specific treatment for a drug or alcohol addiction, call Step One Recovery today!
