Substance abuse issues can impact men and women differently. For example, women are likely to use smaller amounts of drugs or alcohol than men, yet will feel their effects more strongly. For this reason, women can become addicted to drugs or alcohol faster than men. While Sereno Ridge Recovery is a co-ed campus, we do have gender-specific meetings and activities tailored to suit each individual’s needs. Everyone in our recovery program receives a customized plan that includes non-clinical group meetings as well as activities like yoga, art, and meditation.
At Sereno Ridge Recovery, you’ll find support and encouragement from a group of peer support specialists and other women in recovery. To learn more about program specifics and openings, contact Sereno Ridge Recovery at 833.300.0101 today.
Why Should You Choose a Women’s Recovery Program?
A women’s recovery program offers unique benefits. In many recovery centers, men and women engage in group meetings together. However, men and women have unique needs when it comes to healing from substance use disorders. In group recovery meetings, you’ll find support specialists and other team members who have experience in helping women overcome addiction issues.
Is our abstinence-based recovery program right for you? Consider the following questions:
- Do you find that you are hiding your drug and alcohol use from your loved ones?
- Does finding, using, and recovering from drugs or alcohol take up a significant amount of your time?
- Do you experience withdrawal symptoms when you stop using drugs or alcohol, like headaches, body aches, insomnia, nausea, or tremors?
- Have you ever engaged in risky behavior, like driving, while under the influence?
- Has using drugs and alcohol interfered with your daily responsibilities?
- Have you ever experienced a blackout because of heavy drinking?
- If you can answer “yes” to any of the above, consider reaching out to Sereno Ridge today.
Benefits of a Women’s Recovery Program
We believe that women who are working to overcome addiction issues should have a safe space to discuss their experiences. In single-gender group meetings, women can feel more comfortable discussing issues like motherhood, relationships, and sexual harassment. In addition, women who are struggling with addiction might have experienced trauma in the past, such as domestic violence or sexual assault. Trauma can contribute to the cycle of addiction, where women might turn to drugs and alcohol to cope with resulting feelings of anxiety or depression. Discussing these experiences with other women in a 12-step context can be healing.
Our Alabama recovery program helps women who are struggling with substance abuse issues find lasting sobriety. Group meetings can help women with the specific challenges they face. In our non-clinical recovery program, you’ll find a safe, welcoming space where you can discuss your experiences and build a network of support with other recovery-focused women. Our 12-step immersion retreat allows guests to focus on their recovery away from the distractions of the outside world. We create a personalized plan for every individual in our care to best meet their needs and help them reach their goals.
