Long Term Alcohol Rehab offers treatment programs that allow an alcoholic woman to address not only the addiction but also the underlying causes of the addiction. These rehab facilities offer a safe haven for women who have come to the end of their rope with addiction. Long term alcohol rehab programs offer many services to the recovering alcoholic woman such as: medical care, counseling, psychological support and educational training. In fact many of the staff members and long term alcohol rehabs are actually recovering addicts who serve as role models. Many long term treatment programs are inpatient treatment facilities that offer food, shelter and clothing while the individual is going through treatment.
Alcoholism is defined as drinking alcoholic beverages to a level that interferes with physical health, mental health, social, family, and job responsibilities. Men and women both suffer from addiction and many treatment centers offer a co-gender approach to the treatment of addiction. It is important to note that while the symptoms may be the same, the way that the addiction takes hold is more often than not very different. Women who abuse alcohol have higher rates of depression, anxiety and suicidal tendencies, many of them have been exposed to trauma as a child and some sort of domestic violence. Many times in treatment a woman will admit to coming from a family who abused alcohol. It is also not uncommon for a woman who grew up in an abusive household to gravitate to that type of life as an adult.
When searching for a program that addresses women and alcohol the individual should seek a treatment center must understand that is fully staffed by women. This increases the chance of success when women are able to recover in an all female treatment center. In a gender-specific treatment facility, women can open up more about the past, their relationships and feelings in a safe nurturing environment without worrying about what men are thinking.
When searching for a long term alcohol rehab facility it’s important to choose the right geographical area for treatment. Many times an alcoholic will find it very easy to relapse when they are going to a rehab program in the same area in which they live. Unfortunately with alcohol and any other drug the reasons for addiction are caused by the living and work environment, therefore it is more conducive to the recovery process to find a treatment program out of area. For instance many addicts find drug rehab in California to be a great place to start over. With its golden sunshine and close distance to the Pacific Ocean it is a very peaceful and serene place to start a new and sober journey. Using a facility out of state also allows for stronger bonds to be formed between the patient and staff members which helps aid in the recovery process.

Safe Harbor Treatment Center located in Costa Mesa, California is a gender-specific treatment center specializing in long term drug rehab and alcohol rehab. Safe Harbor addresses the specific needs of women and alcohol, is a women only staffed facility that offers many services to aid in recovery. Do you or someone you know need help with addiction?
