Although men generally face higher rates of substance abuse than women, the female population battles its own physical and psychological obstacles that can lead to substance use disorder. For one thing, women generally have a more limited tolerance toward alcohol and other drugs and are less able to metabolize larger amounts of these substances. On another, women face a litany of emotional and social issues, for which they may self-medicate. These issues range from higher rates of sexual assault, discrimination, and marginalization in many areas of life and others. If you or your loved one is a woman struggling with substance use disorder, there is compassionate, intuitive, and expert rehab available to help you enter recovery.
What Happens in Women’s Rehab?
Data from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) indicates that 19.5 million females (or 15.4 percent) ages 18 or older have used illicit* drugs in the past year; a significant percentage of this population winds up with serious substance use and mental illness issues. Rehab for women must offer affirming, compassionate, and sensitive behavioral therapy that speaks to the unique and diverse issues women face that drive substance use. These may include family issues, domestic violence, workplace prejudice, among many others. This type of behavioral treatment should include group therapy, individualized counseling, and additional modalities, like cognitive behavioral therapy.
