Women’s Detox Center
When it comes to seeking addiction treatment, you can begin to feel overwhelmed with your options. What type of treatment do you need, where should you seek treatment, where should you even begin with your search? In many cases, the first step to treatment is a medical detox center. For some, a women’s detox center in Florida is ideal for the treatment of alcohol addiction, opioid addiction, and other substance abuse cases.
Importance of a Detox Center
A women’s detox center can play a crucial part in the success of treatment. In more serious cases of addiction and with dangerous substances, detox is often the first step in a more comprehensive treatment plan. During detox, the client is under the direct care and supervision of medical professionals. As they begin to experience withdrawal symptoms, the team is able to administer medications that help keep the client comfortable and safe. Because of the intensity of some withdrawal symptoms from harsh substances like heroin and alcohol, a professional women’s detox center is a must to stay safe.
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.
Withdrawal symptoms that individuals can experience include the following:
- Muscle aches
- Joint pain
- Anxiety and depression
- Confusion and disorientation
- Nausea and vomiting
Why A Women’s Detox Center?
While a detox center is important for those in need of treatment, a women’s detox center can provide the gender-specific treatment necessary to help clients feel safe and welcomed. Although anyone can experience addiction and need detox, men and women tend to have varying experiences and require different approaches to care. Women tend to begin using harmful 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 personal experiences and reasons for addiction.
For women, trauma can also play a significant part 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 welcomed and safe to share their stories and work through their trauma. While having men and women discuss other shared experiences together in group therapy sessions is helpful, in cases of trauma, it’s important to keep the sessions gender-specific.
Gender-specific treatment also helps to eliminate any potential distractions that might occur. 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.
