Women and men are affected differently by addiction. New Mexico recognizes this and offers a wide variety of women’s only addiction treatment programs to ensure that women get the help they need to live a life of sobriety.
A New Mexico women’s drug and alcohol rehab program offers many advantages that can help a woman transition smoothly into recovery. These specialized programs for women promote family reunification and often allow children to stay on-site with their mothers. Women can feel free to be themselves and talk openly about their addictions with other recovering females. They may even be paired up with former women addicts who can be their best companion during treatment and for the long haul.
Twenty-nine substance abuse treatment facilities in New Mexico offer women’s programs, according to a 2011 government report. Nearly a dozen offer unique care to pregnant and postpartum women.
