Alcohol & Drug Rehab Treatment Centers for Women
In the United States, millions of women suffer from substance abuse; however, only a select few receive treatment. In fact, 18 percent die each year from substance abuse related issues. There are plenty of reasons for women to not receive treatment; however, the reasons to receive treatment are far more important.
How Addiction Effects Women
There is a theory that the estrogen levels in women have effects on certain substances, such as amphetamine and cocaine. Other factors, such as weight, body fat and metabolic rate, play a part in substance abuse. Women absorb alcohol and drugs slower, causing high levels in their bloodstream and dangerous outcomes if used for a long amount of time.
Women in corporate positions, while slowly becoming part of the norm, are few and far between. For a woman in power to admit an addiction would give society even more room to say that women should stay at home rather than work. For some odd reason, men in power who abuse drugs are just as normal as men in power. There is something wrong with this picture but it is how it is.
Another reason women are apprehensive to seek treatment is they feel more than men. They feel irresponsible and negligent toward their family as well as shameful and guilty.
