AKUA Mind & Body’s Detox program for women is part of our gender specific treatment in facilities located in Los Angeles & Orange County Region in California.
Under the watchful eye of our extremely capable team of clinicians and nurses, one can detox both physically and psychologically. Detox treatment is necessary for clients to rid their bodies of alcohol or drugs before they can fully enter an integrative drug and alcohol treatment program.
Our female specific detoxification allows female clients to concentrate on their present needs with the ability to release the potential tension that can exist in a mixed gender setting.
AKUA Mind and Body is a full-service treatment program that offers a wide range of “east meets west” treatment modalities for many different populations struggling with substance use and mental health disorders. We offer both intensive inpatient programs as well as outpatient treatment. AKUA Mind & Body works diligently with each client and their family to ensure that treatment plan is specifically tailored to their needs, and not just their disorder.
Gender specific treatment involves treating men and women in a different setting in order to remove some of the distractions and barriers that may arise from being around members of the opposite sex. It also allows clients to feel more comfortable and focused as they go through detoxification around peers of the same gender. In many cases, individual barriers to recovery are gender-specific and therefore men and women have very different feelings about seeking treatment, how their disorders affect their body and the stigma associated with their barriers to treatment.
Additionally, Gender specific treatment provides treatment for women in a specialized setting. It allows female clients to share female specific issues such as pregnancy, trauma, and abuse without feeling they have to hold back their emotions and stories in a room full of mixed genders.
