The physiological aspects of drug addiction are a key focus in women’s residential treatment in Utah programs. Different forms of detoxification are used to cleanse the women’s bodies from addictive substances.
What follows this? The problem is solved. According to some experts, the answer is no. Many experts believe that detoxification can be the first of many steps an addicted person must take.
In order to achieve a total recovery, it is essential that the framework of rehabilitation covers all aspects related to the addiction. This means that the program needs to address emotional, mental and physical issues which are the basis of the addiction. In addition, the program needs to be able predict withdrawals that will occur when the drug is eliminated from the patient’s system.
This emphasis on holistic healing is especially important in programs for females, since doctors and psychotherapists both agree that women are more likely to be addicted due to unresolved issues than by physical addiction.
The holistic healing process can only take place in an atmosphere that promotes peace, comfort, growth as a person, and healthy coping mechanisms for the stresses of life. Women’s drug rehabilitation programs should focus on the addiction issue, as well as helping the person become an active member of society.
