Women’s 90-Day Program for Addiction Treatment and Sober Living
The Women’s Center is a 90-day program for treating drug and alcohol addiction. It involves a sober living component that provides women with the specialized care they need. This extended care option is essential because of the unique challenges facing women as they recover from addiction.
If you’re a woman who is struggling with an addiction, you may need a different treatment approach. Recovering can be difficult, but it’s not something you should go through on your own. You may find that you require more than a 30-day stay in inpatient drug or alcohol rehab. So many women face serious issues that simply aren’t sufficiently treated in such a short amount of time.
Our program aims to provide you with the support you need so that you can be successful in recovery. You’ll find that it is well rounded and detailed according to what your specific treatment needs are.Get Help Today

Sober Living for Women
Outpatient care is rarely the answer for women with addictions. This is due to the fact that the temptation to use is still there.
Most people find they need to be completely removed from their normal environments. This allows them to focus solely on abstaining from the use of substances and on their recovery efforts. Sober living allows you to do just that.
Our sober living facility for women is set up with your needs in mind. You’ll find that you have access to multiple activities to keep yourself occupied as you recover. Of course, you’ll also have plenty of downtime to reflect, journal and rest too. All of these are so important as you move forward in the healing process.
Right now, you may be surrounded by people who are enabling your addiction. It’s also possible that your home life isn’t safe for you at this point in time. In either case, sober living offers you an alternative. It’s a healthy environment where you can learn, grow and thrive. You’ll find that it makes a difference when you’re surrounded by other women with the same goals. You’ll be empowered to press on, and it’s much easier to get used to living without substances.
Your Drug/Alcohol Treatment in an Intensive Outpatient Rehab Environment
Our intensive outpatient treatment program (IOP) is the perfect complement to sober living in many ways. Most inpatient treatment facilities offer a 30-day stay, which is much less than you need. The Women’s Center provides you with so much more.
Many women enjoy IOP because of the flexibility it offers them.
You’ll participate in many different activities as a part of this program. You’ll find that your treatment is varied, and it’s tailored according to your specific needs. Every patient receives her own treatment plan to ensure a more personalized experience.
As a part of your IOP, you’ll attend treatment on a schedule. You may go as much as five times during the week, for several hours at a time. During that time, you’ll be able to talk with your therapist regularly. You’ll also meet with other women for group support and therapy. Both will play a key role in meeting your recovery needs.
Types of Therapy Offered to Women
As a woman, your needs during addiction treatment differ from the needs of a man.
You may not feel comfortable in a mixed gender setting. You also may require specific types of therapy that are more targeted toward women. You’ll find that you can receive everything you need as a part of our program.
We offer several different types of therapy at The Women’s Center. You may participate in one or many of the following.
According to The American Psychological Association, 50% of women will experience a traumatic event. 8% of women who survive these events will eventually develop PTSD. These are scary statistics. However, they indicate that for many women, trauma is a serious issue they’re facing. The fact is that many women who have been victims of trauma will turn to addictions to cope. Perhaps this has been the case for you.
A traumatic event is defined as anything that has caused you significant physical and psychological harm. Examples can include:
- Sexual abuse
- Childhood sexual, physical or verbal abuse
- Domestic violence
- Terrorism and war
- Living through an accident or natural disaster
You may or may not have developed PTSD as a result of your trauma. Either way, receiving trauma therapy can help you significantly. Unfortunately, far too many women don’t get the help they need when they’ve lived through a traumatic event. Various types of therapy can help you heal from trauma, or PTSD. Both may very well be the source of your addiction.
You may be a woman who suffers from a mental illness, and you may or may not be aware of it. This is actually quite common. You might be having symptoms of anxiety, depression or any other mental health issue. It’s very common for women who suffer with psychiatric issues to also be battling an addiction. When these conditions occur at the same time, it’s called having a co-occurring disorder. Some professionals will also refer to it as having a dual diagnosis.
The type of therapy you receive will depend on the mental health condition you have. It’s very important to address both conditions at the same time. Most of the time, mental illness can result in addiction. However, that’s not always the case. Sometimes the opposite is true, and you can have an addiction that progresses into mental illness.
Either way, you need to be treated for both simultaneously. This will be a part of your overall treatment plan. If you’ve never been diagnosed with a mental illness, your therapist can assist in that process. It’s possible that a mental illness is the underlying cause for your addiction. When both are treated together, the long-term outlook for recovery is much better.
The patient isn’t the only one who suffers at the hands of an addiction. Families are often impacted as well. When they are, their relationships with the patient are damaged. Sometimes the issues are beyond repair. However, there are instances when therapy can help.
Your family is your most important support systems. You need them to help encourage you and uplift you as move forward in your recovery. Family therapy can help you to repair the damage that has been done within these important relationships.
Your therapist will work with you and your family members during family therapy sessions. This is a time for you to talk about any issues you may have so that you can come to some resolutions. So many women find tremendous healing takes place during these sessions. It is a time for you to rebuild relationships that you may have thought were lost. You will find that there is hope and the right type of therapy can restore it.
As of this moment, you may not be able to comprehend what life will be like without drugs or alcohol. You’re not alone if this is the way you feel. In fact, this belief is what is keeping you bound in your addiction. However, you can re-learn what it is like to live your life without remaining an active addict.
At The Women’s Center, you’ll participate in multiple classes that will help you in this area. You’ll learn about the importance of taking care of yourself, and how you should do that. You’ll get information about taking care of your family, and how to manage the ins and outs of family life.
There are so many other ways for you to cope without having to turn to substances. It is our goal to help you create a plan that will help you be successful in your recovery, long-term. You’ll learn more than just how to manage; you’ll learn how to thrive in your role as a woman, wife and mother.
Will You Need to Detox From Drugs or Alcohol?
Prior to getting started with your treatment, you may need to go through a period of detoxification. There are some substances for which detox is required, and others for which it is recommended. For example, if you are currently addicted to alcohol or prescription drugs, detox is required. Otherwise, you may experience complications that can make your recovery much more difficult.
Once we understand your addiction, we’ll recommend the type of detox that will be right for you. There are holistic options, and there are also medical options. A proper combination of dietary and lifestyle changes and medication might be needed during your detox.
Drug and alcohol detox is important because it will assist you through withdrawals. It will make your recovery much easier on you both mentally and physically. Once you’re finished, you’ll be able to enter the program and work on the psychological component of your addiction.
How is Our 90-Day Addiction Treatment Program for Women Different?
There are many factors that make our program much different than others you may have seen. First and foremost is our commitment to personalized treatment.
We understand that your addiction is something that is unique to you. It won’t work to give you a “blanket” treatment plan that other patients have received. Unless your needs are met, you’re not likely to recover.
We also address every aspect of your addiction. We know that there is a physical component that must be addressed first. Our sober living environment will help you by removing you from any dangerous or risky living situation. You’ll be surrounded by other women who are all facing the same types of challenges you’re facing.
Finally, we work hard to understand the reasons behind your addiction. This allows us to provide you with the type of therapy you need to recover. You are an individual when you’re in our care, and you’ll always be treated like one.
Reasons to Consider Extended Care for Your Recovery
It may be simpler for you to just go to a 30-day inpatient program for rehab. This is certainly an option that is available to you. While these programs are excellent, they’re not always appropriate for everyone who needs treatment.
Extended care removes some of the urgency behind your addiction treatment.
You will have 90 days to work on recovering instead of 30. This will help you to relax and take advantage of all of the therapeutic options available to you.
You’ll also find that it helps when you’re in a program with all women. We are able to offer beds for only 8 women in our facility. Because we can keep our population small, the care and attention you receive will be magnified. This will only contribute to the higher level of care you’ll be receiving.
At some point, it will be time to move on from recovery housing and treatment. You’ll be ready to re-integrate into your life and society. Your recovery will be an ongoing journey, and we will provide you with support during that time.
We offer an aftercare program that will address all of your needs. Most women do very well with a step-down approach into outpatient rehab and counseling. When you’re ready to move on, we can provide you with everything you need to be successful.
