It’s with good reason that we feature a womens rehab program. At the Addiction Recovery Institute of America, we recognize that women face issues in addiction and alcoholism that are unique. We also realize that it’s difficult and sometimes impossible to deal with the trauma caused by men if men are a part of the recovery process. As a result, we employ female counselors to work with you as part of your rehab. They know full well the issues that female patients must address to sustain long-term recovery, especially those that go hand-in-hand with addiction to alcohol and drugs.
It’s important to remember that drug addiction or alcoholism doesn’t appear overnight. It often results from life events, traumatic experiences, and environmental factors that make up who we are. While abstinence may remove the substances, it doesn’t address those issues. That’s where the rehab programs and therapies offered at ARIA can make a difference.
OUR WOMENS REHAB PROGRAM
Detox is usually the first stage of the process for most people in rehab at ARIA. Our women’s rehab program is no exception. During detox, you work in stepping down from drug addiction or alcohol abuse under the supervision of your doctors. Following detox, our women’s rehab program progresses into counseling. Therapy can help people understand the circumstances that got them to this point and the tools they need to cope better in the future. Finally, our women’s rehab programs include aftercare resources.
These resources can help women lower the risk of relapse once they leave treatment. Our focus is on helping you rebuild and restore your life to one of promise built around sobriety. We do this by offering a full range of treatment-related support and services.
In helping women recover from the impact of trauma in their lives, we utilize an integrated approach to treatment based on theory, research, and clinical experience. Our addiction therapy treatment programs include:

BENEFITS OF A WOMEN’S REHAB PROGRAM
Rehab programs are challenging for anyone. The team at ARIA understands the unique considerations of gender-specific treatment. Sometimes, it’s more effective to allow clients to focus on their own gender-specific needs via gender-specific rehab. For women, this can include:
- Focus on what matters – Maintaining a segregated group means counselors can specialize in the most important issues to women.
- Identifying triggers – Women’s rehab often centers on identifying triggers that are unique to women. These can include responsibilities and duties that are centered on women-related roles such as being a wife or mother.
- A safe environment – Many women become addicted after male partner violence or sexual assault. Generally, being among other women eases that strain.
- Gaining mentors and advocates – Evidence shows that peer support is a key factor in treatment success.
- More inclusiveness – A women’s rehab program is generally more accepting of other sexual orientations or transgender individuals.
- Smoother dynamics – Women’s rehab removes the inevitable tensions between men and women from the room.
These benefits are some of the main reasons ARIA features a women’s rehab program. In the next section, we’ll explore a few others.
WHY IS THERE A NEED FOR A GENDER-SPECIFIC PROGRAM?
We recognize that there are factors that facilitate the need for a women’s rehab program, such as:
- Physiological – Women are prone to faster addiction profession because they metabolize drugs and alcohol quicker compared to men. This leads to developing addictions much faster.
- Behavioral – Typically, women are likely to be caregivers. When women become addicted to drugs or alcohol, they tend to feel shame or guilt at “failing” to care to their loved ones.
- Social – In our experience, women tend to be more social and communal then men, and respond to treatment better when they are surrounded by a strong support system.
Obviously, each client is a unique individual. We do not claim that the statements above apply equally to everyone. However, experience has taught us that these generalities can serve our female clients well, as long as we get to know them at a personal level. Either way, we strive to meet these unique needs here at our women’s rehab treatment program.
