Women who struggle with addiction may decide not to seek help because they are scared to admit their addiction or are worried about leaving their family while in treatment. Fortunately, Arizona offers a variety of women-only treatment programs that cater to the needs of women and help them get back on their feet.
Despite the negativity and discomfort of admitting that there is a problem, women are accepting help. According to a 2012 survey by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), 46 percent of those in addiction treatment were women. While sedatives were not the most-abused drug, 75 percent of abusers seeking treatment for sedative drug abuse were female. Women made up more than 50 percent of substance abuse users for tranquilizers, amphetamines, and cocaine.
Clearly, addiction recovery programs targeted to women are critical, and it’s good news that Arizona offers countless options around the state. Find the one that calls to your specific needs.
