Women Helping Women With Addiction
It’s just all women all the time. Any time a woman has been in an all-female environment, they can sense the difference in the environment. It’s not a bad thing when a man enters the group, just different. Women “get” certain things without having to explain why. When the feminine spirit is allowed to permeate through a drug treatment center, the experience can be truly life-changing for a woman in need.
Women Come Together to Heal From AddictionThe sense of sisterhood from women joining together for a certain purpose is a unique experience. It doesn’t matter if it’s moms gathering while their kids are in weekly dance class or a church group of retired women. When women gather with good will, there is feminine strength available for everyone in the group. Everyone’s personal feminine strength becomes affirmed and amplified through the relationships that are formed. This gives each woman confidence and a sense of security to do the work of their daily life.
Add the all-female component to a well-designed drug treatment approach, and you have a rich environment for healing and growth. A specialized treatment setting gives women opportunities that no other rehab center can. Women gain a unique sense of community when they support each other. In drug rehab, women can learn how to build this kind of relationship network for when they return to their hometown. This kind of network introduces women to compassion and mutual support. It creates an environment allowing women to be open to self discovery and the rebirth of their identity of themselves as a woman. A big part of being a healthy empowered woman is developing and relying on caring relationships. Years of isolation and just trying to survive can make a woman hardened to relationships.
Women Have Sense of Community in Drug Rehab
In drug rehab, each woman has the chance to learn how to trust again. They become part of a circle of women who care about each other. In fact, when women who need help learn to accept help from others, they are more likely to step out to another woman needing help. This teaches women about the reciprocity of relationships, that they are not all abusive, self-serving, or dangerous.
Women absorb and sometimes “borrow” the courage of other women, using them as role models for getting through their own struggles. When they can face their emotional problems with renewed courage, they stand a greater chance of standing up for themselves after drug rehab is completed. They understand that they are not alone, other women have come through similar or even worse things than they have. It is possible to be “reborn” as a different kind of woman than they ever thought they could be – a strong healthy woman with something to look forward to in life.
When a woman asks a question or expresses a fear that relates to her personal addiction experience, am all female staff is able to relate to the feminine undertones of her concerns. No one knows a woman like another woman. That’s not to say that all women are exactly alike, because that is anything but true. However, there are some certain things about geing a woman that only another woman would truly be able to relate or understand the importance.
