Why Choose Women’s Recovery?

At Women’s Recovery, we’re committed to the long-term health and welfare of women battling substance abuse. We understand that, often, women begin using substances, such as drugs or alcohol, to self-medicate due to social or psychological problems and pressures. In addition, you may use cocaine, meth, or other stimulants to attempt to lose weight, leading quickly to substance dependency. We know that your relationships, family, trauma, and home situation tend to affect a woman’s choice to use drugs and alcohol.

Furthermore, women also tend to battle mental health conditions, such as anxiety, depression, or mood disorders, in addition to substance use. Women also may succumb to the influence of substances and develop a substance use disorder more quickly than men.

At Women’s Recovery, we also understand that a woman is not as likely to seek treatment, due to childcare, work, and home responsibilities. Moreover, they are more likely to face negative stigma. Don’t let any of these factors deter you from getting help. Our recovery programs can help you get social support, family therapy, trauma-informed care, and parenting information to support your recovery. We’ve designed our women’s treatment programs to address your specific needs. We can provide successful and effective treatment to help you put an end to your substance use.
