Heroin addiction is one of the most horrifying behavioral diseases known to medicine-one which practically ensures overdose if left untreated too long. Although so-called “hard core” drugs such as these were once considered the sole province of men, today a rising tide of women are falling prey to this dangerous substance. Thankfully there are some smart options for women in need.
Here at Orchid Recovery Center, we believe addiction affects not just the mind, but the body and soul as well. Getting well requires assiduous attention to the full person, forgoing reductive methods and focusing instead on more holistic approaches. The result is the curriculum you find here-one of the most specific, compassionate, and effective anywhere in the world.
Orchid has founded much if its program on the work of Dr. Karen Dodge, a seminal figure in the study women’s addiction. Much of her work focuses on the uncommon power women can draw from one another, creating communities of healing within an environment of trust. Here at Orchid, you get all the tools you need to begin regaining your agency and self-regard in healthy, sustaining ways.
It is hardly surprising that women tend to come to heroin abuse along different pathways from men. Whether you have experienced past trauma or struggle with ongoing issues of self-concept, we can help. Do yourself a favor and contact the courteous professionals at Orchid before the problem spins it of your control.
