Addiction Treatment Programs for Women
Substance addiction doesn’t consider race, gender, or the socioeconomic status of a person. It can affect anyone, regardless of where they’re from or who they are. But, while the consequences are mostly the same and can affect the physical, psychological, social, and financial life of a person struggling with addiction, there are some gender differences when it comes to substance abuse treatment.
It can be argued that addiction treatment should be customized to an individual’s needs regardless, and that’s correct. However, women require special attention as their patterns of use, and the physiological effects of substance abuse can be different than men’s.
Addiction Rates Among Women
According to a report from The National Institute on Drug Abuse, both men and women are likely to use almost all types of illicit substances and become addicted to them. However, women are more susceptible to cravings and relapse. Furthermore, minority women may face unique issues during treatments, as they are likely to be victims of rape and violence, two main factors that can cause addiction.
Mental Illness Rates Among Women
According to the World Health Organization, gender is a key factor in mental illness. Depression accounts for close to 42% of all neuropsychiatric disorders among women whereas for men they apply in just 30% of the cases. In fact, women are up to 40% more likely to develop mental illnesses than men.
To understand the reasons, we need to look at the control men have over the extrinsic determinants of their mental health, such as their social status, financial power, and the treatment they are likely to receive. Because they receive more protection than women, men are less likely to become susceptible to mental health risks.
For example, women are the primary victim of sexual violence, which often leads to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD.) As such, women are not only more likely to be diagnosed with depression, but the condition may persist longer in women than in men.
Treatment Statistics about Women
The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that there are more men committed in treatment centers for substance abuse, but that women are more likely to seek treatment. Among all groups, pregnant women or those caring for small children are least likely to seek help, mainly because they fear that their maternal rights will be stripped if child protection learns about their problems.
Women Require Special Attention in Substance Abuse Treatment
When it comes to creating an effective substance abuse treatment for women, experts need to take into consideration not only their addiction, and it’s physical and psychological implications, but also the context. A woman’s relationship with her family, her socioeconomic status, and culture play a crucial role in managing her addiction.
That’s why rehab centers for women tend to create a certain level of sisterhood between the patients, helping them become the individual support systems for each other and care for one another during recovery. The 12-step program is highly effective because it focuses on creating a sense of community and encourages women to share their stories and struggle. It also teaches them that they can look for support not only in the medical staff but also in the other patients.
An adventure therapy program has also been proven to be highly effective for women as it pulls them from their solitude and encourages them to take part in fun and exciting experiences.
The Importance of Gender-Targeted Treatment
As mentioned already, gender plays a crucial role in substance addiction. Women are more prone to mental illness than men and also develop drug addiction faster than them. The effects are also long-lasting and more severe than in men. Some of the most common complications include:
- Liver damage;
- Breast and other cancers;
- High susceptibility to HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, and other sexually transmitted diseases;
Because the effects and socioeconomic implications vary, women need a gender-targeted approach. The treatment should include:
- Understanding the role personal relationships played in developing the addiction;
- Acknowledging the socio-economic differences between men and women;
- Addressing women’s unique health concerns;
- Addressing the gender role and expectations attributed to women;
In addition to these factors, care providers should also consider the challenges most women face when trying to access treatment, such as the stigma associated with drug abuse, lack of programs for pregnant women, fear of loss of child custody, and so on.
