When it comes to seeking addiction treatment, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed by all of the options. What type of treatment do you need, where should you seek treatment, where should you even begin with your search? The first step to treating most substance use disorders is a medical detox center. Detoxing in a gender-specific facilty has many advantages. A women’s detox center provides gender-responsive therapies sessions and activities in a safe and healing environment, helping each woman to take her first steps towards lasting recovery.
We’re committed to providing support for women who are ready to put an end to their substance use. To that end, we offer a range of women’s detox services and addiction treatment options. No woman should have to feel alone in her recovery journey.
Detox is the period during which a person’s body rids itself of the toxins that drugs and alcohol leave behind. This is different from a residential or partial hospitalization program because, in those programs, the focus is primarily on providing strategies to remain sober outside of treatment. However, in a detox program, the focus remains on ensuring that the patient is able to safely and successfully remove the remaining toxins from their bodies while under medical supervision.
Many women start using drugs or alcohol due to a traumatic event in their past. In fact, research shows that nearly half of women experience trauma. At Lakeview Health, each staff member has been trained in trauma-informed care to ensure a safe and welcoming environment for our patients.
Certain factors of addiction affect women more than they affect men. Gender-responsive therapy can help address these factors to provide long-lasting recovery.
A women’s detox center can provide the gender-specific treatment necessary to help patients feel safe and at ease. Although anyone can experience addiction, men and women tend to have varying experiences and require different approaches to care. Women tend to begin using substances for different reasons than men, which requires different modalities for treatment. In a women’s program, individuals can share their experiences with societal pressures, expectations, and other triggers of addiction.
For women, trauma can also play a significant role in addiction. In some cases, women use addiction to manage their mental health after a traumatic incident occurs. Because some of these instances might involve men, it’s important to give women a safe space where they feel comfortable sharing their stories and working through their trauma.
A women’s detox center and women’s addiction treatment program can help clients stay on course to reach their goals of lasting recovery from addiction.
Addiction is a condition that thrives in isolation. Many people struggling with addiction may hide their condition from their friends and family members for fear of how they will react. Furthermore, addiction can also cause friends and family members to pull away from the person struggling, particularly if the person has lied or stolen to pursue their addiction. At Lakeview Health, we believe that finding a community of people who work together to encourage one another in recovery is vital to the long-term personal growth process. Therefore, we provide a community where the women in our treatment programs can come together in recovery. To that end, we offer a range of options to develop a community for healing and growth. For example, after detox, our women’s treatment center, The Rose, also includes a spa where women can go to relax while providing the opportunity to form friendships and relationships that can last a lifetime.
A women’s detox center can play a crucial part in the success of treatment. Detox is often the first step in a more comprehensive treatment plan. During detox, the patient is under the direct care and supervision of medical professionals on a daily basis. As they begin to experience withdrawal symptoms, the team is able to administer medications that help keep the patient comfortable and safe. Because of the intensity of some withdrawal symptoms from substances like heroin and alcohol, a medically monitored detox at a women’s detox center is key.
At Lakeview Health, we provide detox for numerous substances, including:
Once the detox process ends, the body is free of the substance and the individual is able to turn their attention to the rest of their treatment.
Without detox, some individuals may find it hard to focus on treatment as they struggle with cravings and withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms can range from mild to severe, based on the severity of the addiction and the substance that the woman was using. Unfortunately, there is no way to determine how severe the symptoms will be until the person is in the midst of withdrawal. Withdrawal symptoms that individuals can experience include the following:

It’s best to contact a women’s detox center to help mitigate these symptoms and lessen the likelihood of an early relapse. Those who do not seek detox services often relapse because they feel like they need relief from their withdrawal symptoms. Sadly, relapse at this juncture can be dangerous, as a person may take the same dose that they were used to before going through withdrawal. As the body has begun to adjust to living without the substance, this may end up with an overdose.
However, when a woman enrolls in a women’s detox center, they have continuous support and accountability. As a result, they’re significantly less likely to relapse.
