All too often, women carry an excessive amount of responsibilities. They are often the ones who handle household management tasks and ensure that the needs of others are met. That can lead to unhealthy levels of stress. In addition to that, when women suffer from substance use disorder, they may be too focused on others to get the help they need to heal, preventing true recovery from taking place. When this is the case, a women’s rehab program can be the most beneficial choice. If you want more information about our women’s rehab program, call Liberty Bay Recovery at 855.607.8758.
Benefits of Rehab For Women
To be productive and effective in the long term, women must be in an environment that allows them to focus completely on themselves. That can be difficult if not possible to do at home. During rehab, women don’t face disruptions, and they’re not responsible for others.
Identify and Deal with Other Conditions
Often, women who have substance use disorder have other conditions, as well. They may suffer from depression or anxiety, struggle with eating disorders, or have trauma that hasn’t been dealt with appropriately. It is much more likely that these conditions can be identified and treated in a rehab environment. For example, we can integrate treatment for PTSD into a woman’s substance use treatment program whenever appropriate.
Recover in a Safe Environment
Unfortunately, many women who need services don’t live in an environment conducive to their recovery. There may be abuse, codependency, or other dysfunction. Sometimes, even well-meaning family members can do and say things that can be harmful to the treatment process. In a rehab program for women, clients are in a safe place where they can communicate freely. Treatment can unfold as designed. Women can also get assistance in making plans to ensure they are safe once their time in rehab ends.
Gain a Deeper Understanding of the Self
During treatment, women do a lot of work on understanding their emotional needs and their responses to stress. They learn to recognize patterns of unhealthy behaviors and learn better ways to cope with cravings, triggers, and negative emotions.
Plan for Aftercare
During their stay in rehab, women work with their treatment teams to build an aftercare plan. They work out the challenges they may face after treatment, the support they will need, and the level of care that gives them the best chance at success. Women may attend aftercare programs, continue to attend therapy, and receive other treatment to prevent relapse. Staying in contact with other sober people you met in treatment increases the likelihood that you will stay sober yourself.
Emerge Happier and Healthier
When women complete rehab, they often emerge with new strengths and capabilities. They feel empowered and able to:
- Set and maintain healthy boundaries
- Prioritize their own care and well-being
- Form meaningful and authentic relationships
- Pursue goals with a purpose
Mostly, they may feel able to take on challenges without engaging in unhealthy behaviors.
