Gender-Responsive Treatment for Alcohol and Substance Use Disorders
Gender-Responsive Treatment is simply a way of saying the following three things in one phrase:
- Men and Women may develop addictions for reasons specific to their gender
- Men and Women often enter treatment for reasons specific to their gender
- Men and Women are likely to respond to addiction treatment in ways specific to their gender
There’s another important thing to know about gender-responsive treatment:
Men and Women who enter gender-specific alcohol and substance use treatment programs tend to stay in treatment longer and have better outcomes than those who don’t.
With these facts in mind – based on the latest research in addiction treatment – Lakeview Health offers separate, gender-specific, gender-responsive treatment facilities for men and women. The Star of Lakeview supports men seeking treatment for alcohol and substance use disorders, and The Rose of Lakeview supports women seeking treatment for alcohol and substance use disorders.
