The team at Palo Verde Wellness recognizes that women face unique issues when it comes to dealing with addiction. A co-ed rehab might not be the right choice for women if the trauma that led to their addiction was because of men. Being among men as they try to recover can be distracting and a hindrance to the process. For this reason, we also have female counselors to work alongside women in our gender-responsive programs. Many of our counselors have gone through this process themselves, so they know firsthand the issues that female patients need to focus on to achieve the goal of long-term recovery. Our team is ready to answer your questions about what addiction treatment program is right for you.
Benefits of Gender-Responsive Treatment
Rehab programs can be challenging for anyone, but they can also be especially difficult for women trying to balance families, deal with the trauma that led to addiction, and then try and get treatment. The Palo Verde team understands the benefit of gender-specific treatment, so we offer both women’s and men’s rehab programs in Palm Springs, California. Focusing on gender-specific issues as part of gender-specific rehab has proven to be very effective.
The benefits of a women’s rehab program include:
- The ability to maintain a group of only women allows counselors to cater the treatment to issues most important to women
- A safe environment, free from the triggers of trauma caused by men from domestic abuse or sexual assault
- Female mentors and advocates, along with peer support to help you succeed in recovery
- An inclusive rehab experience accepting all sexual orientations and transgender individuals
- A less tense environment when the typical male/female dynamics are removed from the equation
Women’s Rehab Program
Like any substance use disorder treatment program, detox is usually the first step to entirely rid your body of toxic pollutants. This process helps you wean off of the drugs or alcohol in a safe, structured, and professionally supervised way. Women then move on to counseling, where they will work with trained therapists to understand better how they got to this point in their life. They will also work on developing the tools and coping skills they will need for the future once they leave treatment. Women’s rehab also includes aftercare in order to ensure there is long-term support and lower the risk of a relapse. The focus is women helping women achieve the goal of sobriety in conditions the most conducive to success.
Palo Verde Wellness offers a fully integrated range of treatments, therapeutic modalities, and services, including:
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
- Group therapy
- Experiential therapies
- Anger management
- Sound baths
- Alumni programs
In some cases, women may need the extra support of having a residential treatment program where their young children can attend with them. A mother should never feel that she does not have options. Getting treatment for addiction will be one of the best decisions you can make as a parent.
