Drug Treatment Women’s Program
Drug Treatment: Women’s Program
Recovering from an addiction includes learning about how drugs change the brain and how people can use their minds to overcome the cravings of their bodies. Screening and assessment are important aspects for the consideration of treatment for women with substance use disorders.
Researchers found that female addicts used drugs more frequently than men, and when they did use drugs, they tended to focus on harder drugs than those men used.
Statistics show the rising need to help women overcome addiction. The number of opioid-dependent babies born is increasing. Drug use also is leading to a large increase in the number of substantiated child neglect cases.
It is through treatment, at the Micah House, that we aim to get to the root of the women’s addiction issues through the spiritual, emotional, physical, social and family aspects of recovery.
