At English Mountain Recovery, we believe in whole-person healing: mind, body, and soul. Your program will take place in a gender-specific therapy environment, allowing our credentialed experts to meet the unique physiological, emotional, and relational needs of female clients. During a 30, 60, or 90-day stay with us, women feel safe and empowered as they begin a transformative rehab experience.
What is a women-only addiction treatment center?
Women’s rehab centers, also known as women-only addiction treatment centers or women’s recovery programs, are facilities that provide specialized substance abuse treatment and support exclusively for women.
Women and men have different physiological responses to drugs and alcohol, as well as different therapeutic needs. A single-gender treatment focus empowers women to share openly, overcome shame, and trust their therapy team and community.
The English Mountain Recovery staff is trained to work with gender-specific groups, and this type of program uses evidence-based and holistic approaches to help women address a variety of substance-related issues:
Both men and women may pursue sexual relationships or intimacy to fill a void during addiction recovery, and this can be detrimental. When women attend EMR’s gender-specific recovery program, rehab romances become less of a concern.
In some cases, women are fearful of interactions with men due to previous sexual trauma, so single-gender treatment offers a safe environment where women can step back from dating or intimacy to focus on healing.
Our women-specific rehab schedule is tailored to the unique needs of our clients, and incorporates these features into our 12-Step approach:
At English Mountain Recovery, we take a gender-specific treatment approach that allows women 18 and over to rebuild their lives, nurture friendships, and overcome the stigma of addiction. Our long-term recovery programs are proven to reduce relapse and increase the chance of successful sobriety, and our beautiful, 27-acre inpatient center encourages healing and introspection.
It’s important to note that every individual’s journey in recovery is unique, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Support, understanding, and non-judgmental care are crucial for women in recovery as they work towards reclaiming their health and well-being.
30-60 Days: When a long-term care program is not feasible due to financial, professional, or family obligations, English Mountain Recovery accepts clients searching for 30, 45 and 60-day rehabs. No matter how long they stay, 100% of EMR participants receive transitional care that includes referrals for ongoing therapy, options for extended care, and sober living options. This transitional care protocol makes clients accountable for their choices while providing the support they need to succeed.
90+ Days: At English Mountain Recovery, our mantra is that time is a recovering client’s best friend—so we encourage clients to spend more rather than less time in recovery. New data supports that longer programs decrease the likelihood of relapse and improve sobriety outcomes. In fact, the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) calls 90-day programs the “gold standard” in treating alcohol and substance misuse.
Recovery management lasting 90+ days is particularly wise for men and women facing these situations:
