These conditions can complicate the recovery process and it is important for them to be identified and addressed during the substance abuse treatment experience.
Co-occurring Conditions commonly treated at Casa Capri Recovery:
The term substance abuse indicates the early stages of addiction. Substance abuse pertains to the stage in the disease process when a person begins using drugs and alcohol in an unhealthy manner. Frequency and quantity of use may escalate, and the user may begin to lose the power of choice.
“Addiction is a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry. Dysfunction in these circuits leads to characteristic biological, psychological, social and spiritual manifestations. This is reflected in an individual pathologically pursuing reward and/or relief by substance use and other behaviors.
Addiction is characterized by inability to consistently abstain, impairment in
behavioral control, craving, diminished recognition of significant problems with one’s behaviors and interpersonal relationships, and a dysfunctional emotional response. Like other chronic diseases, addiction often involves cycles of relapse and remission. Without treatment or engagement in recovery activities, addiction is progressive and can result in disability or premature death.”
~Definition of Addiction as defined by The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) 2011
Addiction is a progressive disease in that it always gets worse, never better. In the case of women, the progression happens much more quickly. Women lack the ability to metabolize alcohol and drugs at the same rate as their male counterparts and because of other biological factors, require much less of the substance before experiencing adverse effects. Women are often faced with judgment and lack of understanding regarding their illness, and societal stigmas have historically negatively influenced a woman’s decision to seek out help for their condition.
Women suffering with substance use disorders often blame themselves and believe that they should be able to simply stop. Internalized shame and guilt associated with the disease perpetuate the cycle of addiction.

The disease of addiction does not discriminate.
There are many factors which contribute to the onset and progression of the illness. Anyone can be afflicted. Anyone can recover.
Barriers to Substance Abuse Treatment for Women
While women are statistically less likely to abuse drugs and alcohol than men, women who do face more complex consequences from addiction. They also have more difficulty accessing care. There are many reasons for this gender-based disparity.
Gender norms and stigma- Many societies impose rigid expectations on women, especially mothers and caregivers. Women with substance abuse disorder are more likely to be stigmatized for their addiction than men. For this reason, many women hide their addictions.
Relationship issues- Women are far more affected by co-dependent substance use. Many women start using drugs or alcohol due to a relationship with an addict. Women are also less likely to enter or complete treatment if their partner is still using.
Legal repercussions- Parental substance abuse affects children, and addiction can be grounds for losing custody. Since women make up the vast majority of full-time or single caregivers, addiction can easily result in legal issues with child protective services.
Financial complications- Substance use disorder has a detrimental effect on financial stability. Drug and alcohol abuse can impact a woman’s ability to earn an income. Women are already more likely to live in poverty, especially if they are raising children alone.
How to Overcome These Treatment Barriers
Casa Capri Recovery acknowledges the very real obstacles that women battling with substance use disorder face in their treatment process. Our treatment strategies for substance abuse in women are tailored to the gender-specific needs of our clients. We offer an onsite alcohol detox facility and inpatient residential program that enable our clients to start their recovery journey discreetly and safely.
Frequently Asked Questions About Substance Abuse Treatment
Yes, as long as it is secondary to substance abuse, we provide support from our Licensed Therapist (with a specialty in Eating Disorders) and our Registered Dietitian who supports proper nutrition.
The Casa Capri Recovery Newport Beach substance abuse treatment program delivers evidence-based addiction interventions that are highly effective for women. This includes detox services, intensive inpatient treatment, and aftercare services.
Due to biological and hormonal differences, women experience the physical consequences of substance abuse much more quickly than men. By acknowledging this disparity, we are able to enroll our clients at the appropriate level of care.
Women also respond better to relational treatment approaches that build trust among staff and clients. We promote group therapy, family-focused interventions, and a full continuum of care that supports women at all stages of their recovery.
Talk therapy is among the most effective approaches for treating substance use disorder.
At our Orange County substance abuse treatment facility, all of our clients attend individual and group therapy sessions with our qualified and compassionate all-female staff.
These sessions provide a safe space for addressing underlying traumas and co-occurring mental health issues. Clients learn important skills such as building and maintaining boundaries, healthy coping skills, and stress management techniques that can help support long-lasting sobriety.
Substance use disorder is harmful to all individuals, but women with addictions have additional challenges. Women are more likely to receive a dual diagnosis, which is a combination of mood disorders and substance abuse disorders.
Women with substance use disorder who may become pregnant can cause their unborn child to develop severe congenital deformities.
Additionally, women with addictions are more likely to experience intimate partner violence. Unsafe and unstable home environments are not conducive to sobriety and are common triggers of relapse.
While men and women share some of the same risk factors for substance abuse disorder, such as underlying mental health issues, there are some risk factors that are unique to women. This includes:
- Previous sexual or physical abuse
- Partner or spouse drug use
- Financial dependency
- Chronic pain
- Co-occurring mood disorders such as anxiety and depression
Addiction treatment times vary from person to person. Typically, women with long histories of drug/alcohol abuse will require more intensive treatments. Inpatient stays can last between 7 to 60 days. Aftercare treatment can continue for months or years after inpatient treatment.
Women who are actively using will need to complete detox before starting treatment. Since withdrawal symptoms can be uncomfortable or even fatal, it is best to detox under medical supervision.
Inpatient substance abuse treatment in Orange County can cost hundreds or thousands of dollars per day. Outpatient treatment services can cost upwards of $1,000 or more per month.
Cost is one of the many barriers to substance abuse treatment for women. However, Casa Capri Recovery is an approved provider of addiction treatment services with several insurance companies, including Halcyon Health, TriCare, and Anthem Blue Cross. Potential clients can verify their insurance plans on our website.
