Peer groups for women provide a safe space to share experiences and offer mutual understanding and support, which is essential in building resilience and promoting recovery.

Addressing the Unique Needs of Women in Recovery

Women face more significant stigma and judgment related to substance abuse, which can make them hesitant to seek help.3 Treatment programs designed for women provide a safe, confidential space to address these concerns.

Many women with substance use disorders have experienced trauma, such as abuse or domestic violence. Women-specific treatment programs often use trauma-informed approaches to create a supportive environment that addresses these issues.

Women in addiction treatment frequently have co-occurring mental health problems. Programs tailored for women provide integrated services to treat both substance use and mental health disorders simultaneously.

Women benefit greatly from peer support in treatment, especially when they share similar experiences. Women’s treatment programs often emphasize group therapy and peer-led support groups to foster connection and community.

Empowering women in their recovery is essential, as many have faced disempowerment. Treatment for women may focus on developing self-efficacy and life skills to help them regain control and build a foundation for a substance-free life.

Women may have different triggers for relapse compared to men, such as relationship problems and negative emotions. Treatment programs for women develop relapse prevention strategies that specifically address these gender-related differences.

How does residential differ from outpatient?

Long term residential treatment, also known as inpatient treatment, differs significantly from outpatient services in its approach to addiction recovery.

In a residential program, individuals live at the treatment facility, receiving 24/7 support and intensive care. This environment is particularly suited for those with severe addictions, as it provides a structured setting away from daily triggers and stressors.

Conversely, outpatient rehab allows individuals to live at home and maintain their daily routines, attending treatment sessions at scheduled times. This flexibility makes it a viable option for those with milder addictions or substantial work and family commitments.

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the choice between residential and outpatient treatment should be based on the severity of addiction, personal health needs, and life circumstances, underscoring the importance of a personalized approach to recovery.5

Cornerstone provides a residential or inpatient program where individuals stay at our facilities during treatment. This program is particularly beneficial for those with significant addiction issues. Please contact us or complete our insurance verification form for guidance on beginning your recovery journey.

What happens after long term residential treatment?

After finishing our women’s residential treatment program, you will continue the treatment process by stepping down to another level of care.

This level of care could be partial hospitalizationintensive outpatient, or our outpatient program.

Rest assured that you will be taken care of every step of the way.

Is Cornerstone a Women-Only Program?

Cornerstone offers co-educational programs, ensuring that male and female participants reside in separate accommodations throughout their stay. Despite our co-educational approach, we are highly experienced in addressing the unique needs of women and have achieved a notable success rate in providing effective treatment tailored to their specific requirements.
