The underlying factors that are responsible for addiction can be different for women than they are for men because society’s expectations for women can be different than they are for men. For instance society does not expect men to bear children but this can be a big source of stress for some women. Women experience a great deal of sexual trauma and abuse so it is important for them to have a safe secure treatment center where they can relax and feel safe and cared for.
NIDA states that “research has shown that women use drugs differently, respond to drugs differently, and can have unique obstacles to effective treatment as simple as not being able to find child care or being prescribed treatment that has never been adequately tested on women.” They also report that women may be more susceptible to craving and relapse.
