Female Only Rehab

A rehab center can help clients recover from alcohol and drug addiction. However, the setting may not always be comfortable for clients, especially if they have undergone trauma. Female clients dealing with alcohol and drug addiction can find residential co-ed rehab centers difficult to stay in. Living among male clients can prevent women from completely letting go and getting the help they truly need. Due to the stress that a co-ed rehab center can cause, female only rehab facilities have become a popular choice for women.

Alcohol and drug addiction treatment centers solely for women can be therapeutic. Female clients may thrive with the added support of other women attending the treatment recovery program. Women can make significant connections and heal more completely than in a co-ed residential treatment facility. Clients can work together to get the support needed and free themselves of alcohol and drug addiction.

Women attend female only group therapy to address specific issues. These issues are experienced by women alone and attending a female only rehab helps address the problems. Problems that women’s only therapy groups address include:

Rehab for women versus to rehab for men

Alcohol and drug abuse impacts individuals differently. What women and men experience is different when it comes to substance abuse. Women do not need to experience the same type of rehab that men do. Female only rehab addresses issues specifically for women and these include:

  • Relationships
  • Family issues
  • Spouses
  • Sexuality
  • Pregnancy and kids
  • Parenting
  • Sexual and/or physical trauma

Inpatient rehab for women

The traditional time for rehab is 28 days but some clients may need longer stays to get clean of alcohol and drugs. Rehab centers provide treatment programs for up to 90 days and some even give clients the chance to stay longer. After leaving inpatient rehab, clients can receive aftercare to keep them on the straight and narrow and free of substance abuse long-term.

Female only rehab specializes in care that encourages women to interact with other women. Peer support is a major part of the rehab process and women are able to talk about issues that are unique to the gender. Women are also able to discuss and confront the problems that led to their substance misuse.

Rehab centers for women are available around the globe. Due to issues specific to female clients, receiving inpatient care that is created just for women is an ideal way to get the help that is truly needed.
