What Is Rehab for Women?

The Women’s Rehab Program Utah Offers

Women’s rehab is a suite of specialized substance abuse treatment programs tailored to meet the needs of women struggling with addiction. Women’s rehab programs provide a safe and supportive environment where women can receive comprehensive care addressing their specific challenges and experiences.

Women’s addiction is approached with a gender-specific lens, incorporating therapies and interventions that consider factors such as trauma, co-occurring disorders, hormonal fluctuations, and societal pressures.

By focusing on the specific needs of women, our women’s rehab program empowers women in their recovery journey and helps them achieve lasting sobriety and wellness.

Why Choose a Women’s Rehab Program?

A convergence of evidence suggests that women with substance use disorders are more likely than men to face multiple barriers affecting access and entry to substance abuse treatment. (Tuchman, et al.)

Choosing a women’s rehab program can provide you with an environment of empathetic understanding and tailored treatment to help you overcome addiction and embark on a journey of lasting recovery. When considering women’s rehab, here are a few reasons why choosing such a program can be beneficial:

  • Safe and supportive environment—women’s rehab programs are specifically designed to address the unique needs and experiences of women. By participating in a program tailored to her gender, a woman can feel more comfortable discussing sensitive topics and forming connections with other women who can relate to her struggles.
  • Focus on trauma-informed care—many women have experienced trauma related to the female experience in their lives, which can contribute to addiction. Women’s rehab programs often incorporate trauma-informed care, providing specialized therapies and support to address underlying trauma and promote healing.
  • Gender-specific treatment approaches—women may face distinct challenges and barriers in addiction and recovery. Women’s rehab programs offer treatment approaches that address these specific issues, such as hormonal fluctuations, co-occurring mental health disorders, and societal pressures.
  • Addressing family and parenting roles—women have unique family and parenting responsibilities. Women’s rehab programs recognize the importance of addressing these roles and offer resources and support for managing them during treatment and recovery.
  • Empowering women’s voices—women’s rehab programs create spaces where women can amplify their voices and experiences. This allows for a deeper exploration of the factors contributing to addiction and fosters empowerment and personal growth.

Our alcohol and drug addiction treatment programs for women focus on helping women leave substance abuse behind. Here are the drug and alcohol services we offer:

Women’s Drug Rehab Center

According to NIDA, “women often use drugs differently, respond to drugs differently, and can have unique obstacles to effective treatment as simple as not being able to find child care or being prescribed treatment that has not been adequately tested on women.”

Drug rehabs for women aim to tackle gender-specific behaviors related to drug abuse. Some of the types of women’s drug addiction therapy our staff is experienced in are:

Women’s Alcohol Rehab Center

A 2019 overview of alcohol abuse in women cites that “treatment in specialized, women-only settings or treatments that target women-specific issues may improve outcomes for women with alcohol use disorder. “

Another study, published in 2022, concluded that “supporting and expanding the development of sex- and gender-specific low-risk drinking guidelines offers more nuanced and educative information to clinicians and consumers and will particularly benefit women and girls.”

Our alcohol addiction treatment is focused on female-specific alcohol abuse patterns and treatments that are proven to help women fight alcoholism. Visit our alcohol rehab page to learn more about the services we offer for alcohol treatment.

What Types of Treatment are Available for Women at Ardu?

We offer a range of drug and alcohol addiction treatment options for women struggling with addiction. Choose inpatient or outpatient treatment depending on your needs and preferences, and start your sobriety journey at Ardu.

Inpatient treatment, also known as residential treatment, is addiction treatment done at a professional facility for a set period of time.

Ardu has an inpatient drug rehab and an inpatient alcohol rehab. We offer 24/7 support and professional care, and are an ideal option for women who need medically supervised alcohol or drug addiction treatment.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment is addiction treatment that allows you to attend group and individual therapy in outpatient facilities while living at home or in a sober living facility.

Ardu offers an intensive outpatient program and a partial hospitalization program where you can get the necessary treatment during the day, even if you can’t commit to staying at a treatment facility.

Addiction and Mental Health Treatment for Women

Managing mental health issues and addiction at the same time can be challenging for women, and they often don’t get proper support for this challenge. A recent study cites that “women with dual disorders report lower levels of social support than women with substance dependence alone.”

Professionals at our dual diagnosis treatment center can help you tackle both your addiction and co-occurring disorder thanks to their extensive knowledge of trauma therapy and mental health disorders. Here are some of the dual diagnosis services we offer to women:

FAQ on Rehab for Women

What are the 4 pillars of rehab?

Rehab programs at Ardu incorporate four key pillars that form the foundation of comprehensive treatment and recovery:

  1. The first pillar involves a thorough assessment and evaluation process to understand a person’s unique needs, challenges, and goals. This includes assessing physical and mental health, substance use history, social support systems, and any co-occurring disorders.
  2. Detox is a crucial pillar that focuses on safely managing withdrawal symptoms and helping people rid their bodies of substances. It involves medical supervision and support to ensure a safe and comfortable transition into the next phase of treatment.
  3. The third pillar emphasizes therapy and counseling to address the psychological, emotional, and behavioral aspects of addiction. Individual and group therapy sessions provide opportunities for people to explore underlying issues, learn coping skills, develop healthier habits, and build a strong foundation for sustained recovery.
  4. The final pillar revolves around aftercare and relapse prevention strategies to support people as they transition back into their daily lives post-rehab. This may include ongoing therapy, support groups, sober living arrangements, and access to aftercare programs and resources that promote long-term recovery.

These four pillars work together to provide a comprehensive and holistic approach to addiction treatment, addressing the physical, psychological, and social aspects of addiction to help you achieve and maintain lasting recovery.

How long should I go to rehab?

In general, a minimum of 30 days is recommended for residential or inpatient programs to allow for detoxification, stabilization, and initial therapeutic interventions. However, longer durations, such as 60 or 90 days, can provide more comprehensive support and increase the chances of successful recovery.

Ultimately, the optimal length of your rehab should be determined through an individualized assessment by healthcare professionals who can consider your unique circumstances and needs and the severity of your addiction.

How many times a week should you do rehab?

The frequency of attending recovery programs at alcohol and drug addiction treatment centers can vary based on your needs and the treatment plan you’re undergoing.

It is common for people to participate in rehab activities multiple times a week to maximize the effectiveness of treatment. This may include attending therapy sessions, support group meetings, family programs, educational workshops, and other therapeutic interventions.

The specific schedule and frequency of rehab attendance should be determined in collaboration with treatment professionals, taking into account your individual progress, goals, and the recommended intensity of the treatment plan.

How long does it take a person to overcome their addiction?

The time it takes for a person to overcome addiction can vary based on the person’s circumstances, the severity and duration of addiction, the presence of co-occurring disorders, and the effectiveness of the treatment and support received.

Recovery is a lifelong journey, and while progress can be made in a relatively short time, sustaining long-term recovery often requires ongoing commitment, support, and the development of healthy coping mechanisms.
