Alcoholism Recovery for Women

Alcoholism recovery for women tends to be somewhat different from recovery for men. Because women have different psychologies and histories, most come to drinking via different emotional pathways. It’s no surprise, then, that the process of healing often takes distinct forms as well, particularly when it comes to group therapies and similar communal techniques.

Although there are some universal truths about addiction, the fact remains that women traditionally respond far more powerfully to inter-reliance and communal bonds than men. Programs that create such environments of trust are more successful with women for this reason, especially if the treatment population is exclusively female. This essential fact represents one of the primary reasons Orchid Recovery Center has been a success for so many years.

Our approach relies heavily on group counseling of every stripe, from narrative therapy and storytelling to basic, pervasive mutuality. Women here are encouraged to bring their hopes and fears into the meetings, drawing strength, wisdom, and commiseration from the group on a daily basis. This powerful work is underscored and reinforced by traditional individual therapies with a holistic bent, including yoga, acupuncture, breath therapy, and more.

Alcoholism is often a response to injured self-concept, and these days there is no surer remedy than relying upon the bonds of sisterhood. Please look around the site if you want to get the full story on our approaches, their effectiveness, and their clinical underpinnings. We look forward to speaking with you.
