Women’s Drug Rehab
In our culture, women have long been silent sufferers—taught to be uncomplaining and self-sacrificing, and to maintain the image of the caretakers whose daily duties, however trying, take no terrible toll.
Among recovering addicts, low-self-esteem is a formidable opponent. Just when you’ve begun to put your life back together again, just when you’ve started to feel good about yourself, some remark or slight will threaten your stability.
Break the Silence
Historically, women have chosen to remain in the shadows rather than face the perceived judgement that could occur when their abuse is revealed. In the past, they were often right.
But now, for a woman suffering under the yoke of a past that includes trauma, and a present diminished by substance abuse, silence only adds to the problem. By not openly confronting the problem, women are made to feel guilty, as if they somehow brought the trauma on themselves. This guilt, in turn, creates a poor self-image.
What a Good Program Can Do
In a good drug rehab program, a woman can feel safe in discussing her most personal experiences. With counseling and especially with group support, she can regain the confidence and self-worth, understand and pursue healthy relationships, respond in a healthy way, be free from unnecessary fears, clarify personal values, regain spirituality, achieve good physical health, and reach her true potential.
