Gender Specific Treatment

What is Gender-Specific Treatment for Addiction?

Gender-specific addiction treatment is a form of therapy that is tailored to the needs of women who are suffering from substance abuse. Gender-specific treatment aims to help women develop a positive self-image and combat negative stereotypes that can lead to addiction.

Benefits of Gender-Specific Treatment Programs

  • Fewer Distractions : Mixing members of different sexes can be chaotic. This is because of the natural attraction that exists between these sexes. The attraction may shift their focus from making a full recovery to pursuing their interests from the other gender.
  • Easy Relations : Addicts of the same gender can share information and relate with each other easily. Their struggles are the same, and whatever they discuss in therapies will apply to all of them. Mixing genders may create a situation where addicts cannot relate because they do not have shared experiences.
  • Comfort in Treatment : In a mixed environment, some patients may find it hard to share traumatic or intimate experiences during treatment. In a gender-specific environment, the audience is more welcoming, and they feel safer to confide in. This encourages the patients to be open and honest, which impacts positively on their healing.
  • Concentration on Gender-Specific Issues : Gender-specific treatment allows professionals to focus only on gender-specific issues. For instance, in a women’s rehab program, the professional can focus on matters touching on motherhood and addiction without alienating any program member.

Treatment Services

A typical gender-specific treatment program will involve group therapy, individual counseling, and family education. The group sessions are designed to build confidence and give women a safe place to talk about their experiences with addiction. Individual counseling is used to address any specific issues that may be contributing to the woman’s substance abuse problem. Finally, the family education component helps parents learn how best to support their daughter in recovery without enabling her behavior or enabling her relapse back into addiction.
