Women are culturally conditioned to put the needs of others before their own. They might not seek substance abuse treatment out of fear of appearing selfish. Michigan, however, has drug and alcohol programs designed solely for women. These specialty programs offer a nurturing environment to women, free of judgment and among supportive peers and staff.
You or your loved one are not the only ones struggling with a substance abuse program. In Michigan, women made up 39 percent of the patients enrolled in substance abuse treatment, according to one 2013 government survey. Alcohol abuse and drug addictions to substances including cocaine, heroin, and other opiates were the highest treatment areas for women patients. As of the same year, more than 30 percent of Michigan facilities offered a specialty women’s program.
Let these statistics encourage you or your female loved one to seek help from one of Michigan’s many quality women’s substance abuse programs.
