Recognizing women’s unique experiences and the implications they have on drug and alcohol abuse is essential to the recovery process. Women-specific residential programs offer gender-specific treatments, allowing clients the freedom to discuss female-specific challenges that many residents face. With the freedom to discuss issues in a safe environment, women can focus on their recovery separate from social pressures and stigmas. Female-centric therapies allow women to connect with one another and recognize the challenges they face are not theirs alone. Inpatient treatment is one component of Sober College’s program offerings that gives women the ability overcome addiction without removing them completely from the world they will reembark on with a new sober lifestyle.
Women’s Residential Programs That Works
Sober College offers women’s residential rehab center that caters to women’s unique needs. Through a residential environment, women receive assistance making necessary life changes that support their recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. Through a unique female perspective, Sober College’s curriculum is designed to address sobriety, emotional well-being, life skills, productivity and physical fitness. While utilizing the successful principles of a 12 step model, women also receive individualized treatments that help them accomplish their own goals and aspirations. Sober College encourages and supports every woman’s endeavors by helping them build confidence, achieve goals and set new healthy boundaries to support a sober lifestyle.
The first 30 days of treatment are referred to as the “Freshman Phase”. For many young women, the first 30 days of recovery are the most crucial. During this time, there are minimal privileges and clients are required to be with a staff member at all times. This time period is utilized to build relationships with housemates and staff and allows new clients to become comfortable in their new environments. The Freshman Phase comes to an end on a case by case basis, but generally many are eligible at the 30 day mark.

Why Choose a Gender-Specific Program?
Living in a single-sexed residential home, young women work with female sponsors and are able to work on life skills together. In addition, Sober College provides women the unique opportunity to complete college classes while working through recovery. Women are able to continue engaging with the real world by attending classes and developing a sense of independence coupled with support from staff. Inpatient treatment provides women with 24 hour care and has a substantial impact on successful recovery. Women are able to remove themselves from the environments, situations and people that may have led them to drug and alcohol addiction. Removing distractions of everyday life and allowing women the ability to focus on their own physical and psychological needs aids in the healing process. As many women in recovery have co-occurring disorders in mental and physical health, the structured and supervised environment is a safe place to recover.
