When someone decides to seek help for their addiction, they deserve respect. It’s a difficult thing to do for someone who has been wasting their life on drugs or alcohol. In order to ensure they are as comfortable as possible with the addiction treatment process, there are concessions an addiction treatment facility could make. In our facility, we offer gender-specific detox programs. So we do maintain a women’s detox center for women who would prefer that kind of treatment environment.
Of course, a women’s detox center in Florida has nothing to do with segregation or bias. In fact, it has to do with making sure all patients can get treatment in an environment that’s comfortable for them.
We have to accept the fact men and women are different. Society treats them differently, which results in each gender taking on different characteristics and responsibilities. Therefore, for women, society places more focus on their moral character, emotional stability, and ability to be caring and nurturing. Women, who are suffering from an addiction, suffer greater injustices at the hands of people who call into question these things. It’s for that very reason that a lot of women prefer a women’s detox center over a coed facility. Just like many men prefer a men’s detox program.
Women’s detox programs offer women some very specific benefits. For example, the list of benefits includes:
To be clear, women’s detoxification is very similar to what men go through. There are physiological differences that take place, but nothing that requires a high level of specialized care.
However, there are aspects of the women’s detoxification process that are deserving of extra consideration. We address these things in our South Florida women’s detox center programs. At the end of the day, we have a responsibility to make sure all of our patients are safe while going through withdrawal.
In our women’s detox center, we monitor the progress of each patient. We also provide them with a nutritious diet and access to amenities that should help them feel more comfortable. Like other women’s detox programs, we spend extra time addressing each woman’s mental and emotional well-being. Unfortunately, women addiction sufferers endure horrible treatment at the hands of people who don’t know any better. While going through the detox process with them, we deal with issues of confidence and self-perception. We do this to remind women they are strong people and don’t need to succumb to outside influences.
By the time a woman leaves our women’s detox center in Florida, they should be ready for therapy. That’s the time and place where they can begin to deal with their future in recovery.
The fact we only offer detox services has no bearing on how we treat patients. Each patient receives a custom detox treatment plan. If our patient is a woman, then we feel we need to offer her access to a women’s detox center. The same goes for a man who wants gender-specific treatment. What we are driving at should be clear. We feel it is necessary to do everything possible to make patients comfortable during the detox treatment process.
