Why is Gender Specific Treatment Important?

While men may not really be from Mars nor women from Venus, what cannot be disputed are the fundamental differences between the genders. It’s been noted and observed that although individuals struggling with addiction may have many similarities, they equally have inherent differences that are necessary to recognize clinically and sensitively address those issues in the individualized treatment plans. Some of these variations include differences in why they began to use drugs initially, sensitivity in gender differences in early recovery and creating a safe space where each gender can be vulnerable with as little distraction from treatment as possible.

Gender specific treatment at DreamLife Recovery allows our clients to fully immerse themselves into their own tailored treatment plan without the concern or pressure to be “presentable” or “desirable” to the other gender. Research has shown and validated there are not only psychological impacts but physiological changes that occur when one enters into treatment and being able to identify with peers is a crucial element of building a sustainable recovery. A few examples of topics that will be addressed in gender separate groups include: sexual abuse, domestic violence, parenting with addiction, body image, self esteem and self concept.
