Drug Addiction Treatment for Women
Women frequently become addicted to one or more drugs to deal with intense emotional pain. Deep emotional pain may stem from a woman’s childhood or an abusive relationship in her adult years. Many times, women don’t seek or succeed at drug rehab because these underlying problems are not properly addressed. If a woman continues to live with an abusive man, why would she agree to give up her addiction, the one thing that allows her some escape from the terror and loneliness of her relationship?
Also, women often do not get the benefit of a supportive female community in most drug rehab centers. Dr Karen Dodge has studied women’s recovery a great deal. She has learned that women heal in unique ways by joining other women in a mutually supportive environment. This key understanding is at the foundation of the Orchid Recovery Center. Where other rehab centers may try to serve everyone needing treatment, the Orchid focuses just on the specific needs of women.
Drug Treatment Approach for Women
No matter what addiction you are dealing with, the Orchid Recovery Center is equipped to help you with each step of the process. For some addictive drugs, a medical drug detox is required before beginning treatment. It can be medically risky to detox off drugs without medical supervision, especially when someone is using large amounts of one or more drugs.
The holistic treatment process at the Orchid Recovery Center involves traditional 12-step philosophies, individual counseling, and group counseling methods. Research-based methods provide a solid foundation for successful drug rehab outcomes.
What makes the Orchid unique is its use of ancient healing and spiritual practices to enhance a woman’s addiction recovery experience. The mind, body, and spirit are given ample attention. The staff at the Orchid know that when a woman has balance among these three elements of her life, she will be much less susceptible to relapse.
Drug Rehab for Many Addictions
Drug Rehab is available for many kinds of drug addictions:
- Prescription painkillers (Oxycontin, Vicodin, morphine, etc)
- Prescription stimulants (amphetamines, Adderall)
- Prescription depressants (Xanax, Valium)
- Marijuana addiction
- Cocaine addiction
- Crack cocaine addiction
- Crystal Meth addiction
- Heroin addiction
This is far from a complete list of drugs that women can become addicted to, including so-called “club drugs” like PCP, LSD, and Ecstacy. The Orchid Recovery Center treats all types of drug addictions.
It’s not uncommon for women to have poly-substance addiction, meaning that a woman is addicted to more than one drug at once. Many people use more than one drug together to get different effects, so it makes sense that more than one addiction could develop.
