Think You Don’t Have Time For Treatment? Think Again!
Because you are reading this article, you are probably considering the possibility that you or someone you love has a substance use disorder. We are glad you’re here! Recognizing a need for treatment is the first step toward finding freedom.
Many women want to get help for a substance use disorder, but they don’t see how they can fit treatment into their busy schedules. Daily responsibilities don’t magically disappear because a woman needs help with a drug or alcohol problem. There are still bills to pay, children to raise, households to run, classes to attend, and careers to pursue.
When most women think of going to rehab, they automatically assume they will have to go for residential services and stay at a facility for a month or longer. This is a misconception that often discourages women from pursuing their treatment options. While there are certainly situations that may require an inpatient stay for substance use disorder treatment, most women can benefit from our evening outpatient program.
What is an Outpatient Program?
It is not uncommon for women to stay stuck in the devastating cycle of addiction for years because they think they can get the situation under control given the right set of circumstances. The truth is, a substance use disorder only gets worse if left untreated. Drug addiction affects women very profoundly and can be fatal if not arrested.
If you have been struggling with an addiction to drugs or alcohol, chances are you have tried to quit on your own – but you have been unable to do so. This is because obsession and compulsion drive a substance use disorder. Without professional help, these powerful forces make it next to impossible to stop the addictive cycle once it starts. This is why treatment is necessary.
Our evening outpatient program equips women with the knowledge, tools, and skills they need to enjoy a life of sobriety. We recognize that women work, attend college, and have families to take care of. We have created this program so women can get the help they need with minimal disruption to their daily lives.
Our evening outpatient program is offered 4 nights a week from 5:30pm to 8:30pm, with a family component on Saturdays from 10-12pm. Women can expect the same quality of services they would receive if they stayed with us at our residential facility, or attended day treatment. The only difference is that our evening outpatient program is tailored to meet the individual needs of the busy professional woman who is in the office until 5pm.
Also, we offer detox services for those who need to safely and comfortably complete the withdrawal process before they begin the evening outpatient program.
Our Evening Outpatient Program is a Safe Space for Healing
We are a women’s treatment center run by women for women. We believe women need to have a safe space to share their innermost selves during the recovery process. In our experience, this happens when women are emotionally supported by other women.
Our treatment sessions are designed to educate women about what it means to have a substance use disorder, empower them to break the cycle of addiction, address underlying issues that led to the addiction in the first place, and encourage positive connections with other recovering women.
Here are just a few of the many therapeutic activities we incorporate into our evening outpatient program:
- We utilize the Matrix Model, which is an intensive outpatient treatment model
- We introduce proven relapse prevention strategies
- We provide education for families to teach them about triggers, cravings, and the stages of recovery
- We offer regular individual counseling sessions with Master-level therapists
- We lead peer groups that foster connects with other recovering women
- We give random drug tests to encourage accountability
- We incorporate mindfulness meditation to promote grounding and centeredness, which reduces anxiety
Our evening outpatient program is highly effective in the treatment of substance use disorders. We have been helping women get sober for 40 years.
It doesn’t matter whether you are addicted to alcohol, prescription opioids, or illegal drugs. At our evening outpatient program, we welcome any woman who recognizes she has a problem with drugs or alcohol and wants to get help.
Are You Battling a Substance Use Disorder?
Having a substance use disorder can bring even the strongest woman to her knees.
Most women experience emotional and mental instability, financial devastation, problems at work, relationship difficulties, and personal unmanageability long before they ask for help. (These are just a few of the many symptoms of a substance use disorder.) However; we want you to know that you don’t have to wait for things to get worse (and they will!) before you get into treatment. You can start your recovery journey today.
Continued and prolonged use of drugs like alcohol (yes, alcohol is a drug!), heroin, cocaine, prescription narcotics, or crystal meth never leads to a good place. Our evening outpatient program provides a solution to busy women who want to break the cycle of addiction.
If you’re ready to find freedom, we’re here. All you have to do is reach out for help.
