Women and addiction treatment: Services we provide
The professionals at Maplegrove understand the specific issues related to women’s addiction. We recognize that addiction is an illness, not a moral issue or matter of self-control. Our specialists work with women individually to create a personalized treatment plan. The goal of treatment is to help women successfully reintegrate into family, work and community life. Our addiction treatment program follows a three-phase structure:
- Interruption. Stopping the cycle of addiction and establishing abstinence
- Rehabilitation. Facilitating education and therapy so the patient recognizes and accepts the addiction, as well as beginning daily routines of recovery.
- Recovery. Implementing ongoing support, including counseling and 12-step meetings, to promote stability and long-term wellbeing.
We are here to assist each woman in reaching her highest potential. Our program engages women in a way that helps them find their inner strengths.
Components of our program include:
- Education. We educate women about addiction and recovery.
- Skill building. We help women develop and build new coping skills.
- Therapy. Women participate in a combination of individual and group therapy, receiving much-needed support and guidance.
