Women’s Residential Program
For many years, it was believed that addiction was mainly a problem among men. However, women face issues with substance use as well. Women have unique issues regarding substance use, influenced by differences in biology and their culturally defined roles. Women often describe different reasons for using drugs or alcohol, including weight control, fighting exhaustion, coping with pain, and self-medicating mental health disorders. Treating women for addiction tailored to their specific, unique needs can help them find a healthy, happy life in sobriety. Luckily, Spero Recovery Center is prepared to do so.
