At Monarch Shores we understand the importance of separating women and men in our rehab centers. We believe that drug rehab centers for women should be unique in their treatment and should go without the interference of the opposite sex. There are many reasons why drug rehab for women is necessary and effective when separated from men. If you are looking for rehab centers for women only than you are in the right place.

Benefits of Drug Rehab for Women
Drug addiction is complex between men and women, that’s why there are rehab facilities for men and facilities for women. Women turn to drugs for different reasons, some similar to men but women have a unique set of reasons why they would abuse drugs. Women struggle with different issues than men and for this reason, it could be more productive to separate men and women in addiction treatment, especially in group settings and with personal counselors. For example, a woman may not feel comfortable talking about her self-image issues or other personal problems while surrounded by a group of men.
- They can find similarities between each other’s stories and events in their lives to help them realize they are not alone or different.
- Women struggling with substance abuse who are survivors of physical, emotional, or sexual abuse might distrust or be uncomfortable around men or discuss these topics around men in group therapy.
- Women can keep group conversations focused on gender-related issues.
Common reasons women turn to drugs and alcohol:
- Dual Diagnosis: A dual diagnosis occurs when doctors diagnose a mental condition such as depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder, along with substance abuse. Conditions such as depression and substance abuse can affect each other. Drug rehab centers for women can explore this dynamic and provide solutions for any woman struggling with a dual diagnosis.
- Social Interaction: Being told you are unattractive or overweight, for example, is a prime reason women have low self-esteem and turn to alcohol or drugs. We can help address these problems.
- Trauma and Abuse. An Estimated 80% of women who go to rehab for drug or alcohol abuse have reported physical or sexual assault. Women who suffer from current or past physical, emotional, or sexual abuse or other traumas sometimes turn to drugs, or other substances to help with coping.
