A Quick Guide on Understanding What are the Special Needs and the Challenges that Women Face in Rehabilitation

Gender differences always come into play when it comes to treatment for any sort of substance abuse or addiction. To address a particular situation, we must know that patient’s needs are unique, so as their treatments are must be tailored. By just admitting yourself in an inpatient rehab, there are special needs for women that are not fully treated. In fact, not all the time an inpatient rehab will be useful for women but usually it works for men. In order that the treatment becomes successful and effective it is best to understand everything that the women need, their special needs, and to understand their challenges inside an inpatient rehab.

The context is important when providing treatment for women suffering from a substance abuse or drug addiction according to most experts. The approach to their cases must be in the perspective of a woman. The family involved which matters most to a woman is the perspective of a woman made in flesh. It will be effective to admit a woman patient to an inpatient rehab if the medical specialists who will attend to the patient will include all her relationships in the treatment, including her family, extended family, support systems, social and economic environment, and the impact of gender and culture. As a matter of fact, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration or SAMHSA recognized that the specific needs of women must be addressed first before any treatment in an inpatient rehab can start.

The core principles of gender-responsive treatment must be applied at all times importantly above anything else. There must be recognition of the role and significance of personal relationships in women’s lives. The acknowledging of the importance of this role into socioeconomic issues and differences must be included as well. A trauma-informed perspective must be adopted. The integrated approach treatment for women must be incorporated and the multidisciplinary counterpart as well.

To distinguish the particular treatment tailored for recovery, the many factors of substance abuse must be determined. You have to remember that stress, negative affect and relationships have a greater bearing in the initiation of substance abuse or addiction although genetics may be a significant factor to use substance and drugs. It must be determined, the patterns for substance abuse. We can’t deny the fact that women’s treatment challenges are increasing in number across the globe. If there will be an increasing stigma of substance abuse, there could be a fear of loss of child custody, few resources especially those with children, there is no cultural congruent programming, limited options for pregnant women, and lack of collaboration among social service systems, you can expect that most women will not seek help.

If we can understand all the special needs of women when seeking help or rehabilitation, we are helping them not just in treatment or recovery but in getting them back to stand up on their feet.
