ALOHA: Women’s Detox Treatment Program

Substance abuse usually takes a heavier toll on women as compared to men making it important for women to start their journey to recovery in an environment where they can feel safe. ALOHA’s integrative women’s detox treatment program provides an environment of trust and enables proper physical and mental cleansing to strengthen and repair the damage that has been caused by drugs and alcohol. Our highly trained clinical team develops individualized detox and treatment plans for female clients, so they can explore underlying issues such as trauma that contribute to their alcohol and drug misuse. Our individual counseling helps our clients uncover the root cause of their pain which helps them recover successfully. We utilize a therapeutic approach to include not only the conventional one-to-one trauma focused behavioral therapy treatment, but also additional forms of treatment that allow women to safely explore and address their personal issues. The gender-specific atmosphere encourages our clients to speak honestly and openly in ways that the presence of men might inhibit.


Detox Treatment Program Tailored Specifically for Women

At AKUA, we understand women are more likely to have difficulty in seeking or following through treatment due to several factors. Moreover, women mostly report feelings of shame or embarrassment because they are in substance abuse treatment. This makes women’s detox treatment much more necessary. ALOHA is a specialized detox program made specifically for women that aims to understand the sensitive nature of addiction and provide a safe and nurturing environment for women to fully focus on their treatment and recovery. As a result, our clients remain focused on recovery and share their experience and worries without facing the fear of judgment. Men and women experience addiction differently, therefore it is important to have gender-specific (women-only) detox programs. Compared to men, women who have substance use disorders:

  • Experience more severe physical and mental health problems due to their substance abuse.
  • Face greater social stigma, shame and embarrassment due to having a substance use disorder or seeking addiction treatment.
  • May be more likely to have cravings and return to alcohol or drug use after a period of sobriety, known as a “relapse.”
  • Are more likely to suffer from mental disorders such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
  • Are more likely to develop a substance use disorder after distressful events, including divorce, the death of a loved one or loss of custody of a child.
  • Are more likely to drink alcohol or use drugs to relieve negative emotions or stress.
