Addiction is a common disease, but it presents unique challenges for every
patient. Therefore, it is not appropriate to utilize a one-size-fits-all
approach in addiction recovery programs. Gender-specific rehab grouping
is frequently seen in treatment centers, and it is important for addressing
the different factors that may exist in addiction for men and women.
It is important to recognize addiction as a physical, psychological, and
social problem. As such, it can affect men and women much differently,
since both sexes have distinct physical and mental healthcare needs. Additionally,
men and women often feel more comfortable discussing the issues that surround
their addictions in gender-specific group therapy meetings.
At Retreat at Lancaster County, we are understanding of the unique challenges
that can come with addiction in every individual. That is why we offer
personalized care with gender grouping, pain management services, LGBTQ services, and young
adult programs. To learn more about what sets us apart, call (717) 859-8000.
