Some treatment centers offer programs specially designed for women or men with drug or alcohol addictions. It is only in recent years that substance abuse researchers have made a point of including female populations in studies, and drug treatment centers are beginning to offer programs that focus on the unique needs of either male or female addicts.
Women often delay substance abuse treatment because of childcare responsibilities, a limited income and dependency on partners who are also drug users. Drug treatment programs designed for women reflect these common concerns by offering support and services relating to abuse, co-dependency, childcare and emotional trauma.
