Women are certainly not immune to addiction, and addiction can be even more problematic for women than men. Society tends to judge women more harshly for drug and alcohol addiction because they are often the caretakers of children. Fortunately, Alabama offers several rehab programs dedicated to the treatment of women to help them on the path to recovery.
One of the most widely abused drugs in Alabama is methamphetamine, with females making up nearly half of the user population. Lawmakers are attuned to substance abuse, with recent attention on pregnant women. Under Alabama’s “chemical endangerment” law, passed in 2006, adults are prohibited from exposing children to a controlled substance. The same law applies to women addicts who continue to use while pregnant.
The alarming statistics show the reality that Alabamians face, and make the case for customized treatment for women. There is hope for your family, as there are treatment options readily available throughout the state.
