Substance use treatment services for women at the Odyssey House Family Center

Woman and child in treatment

At Odyssey House Family Center, our commitment to providing comprehensive substance use treatment services for women with children is rooted in a profound understanding of the unique challenges they face. In alignment with the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) guidelines, our programs are designed to address sex and gender differences, trauma, and childcare needs and incorporate evidence-based approaches for pregnant and postpartum women.

Recognizing Unique Challenges: Women seeking treatment often present distinctive patterns. They are more likely to seek help for sedative dependence and enter treatment with more complex medical, behavioral, and social issues. The intertwining of substance abuse with concerns related to child custody, parenting, and strained personal relationships underscores the need for a nuanced and tailored approach.

Biological Differences and Tailored Treatment: Women’s bodies can respond differently to substances, hastening the development of addiction. Our approach acknowledges these differences, tailoring treatment modalities to address the specific needs of women, ensuring a more effective and sustainable recovery.

The Odyssey House Approach: Our substance use treatment services are not just programs; they are reflections of our commitment to comprehensive and compassionate care. Drawing from extensive research and decades of clinical experience, our gender-specific treatment programs are crafted to provide safety, support, psychoeducation, and coping strategies for women dealing with both trauma and substance use issues.

Family-Centered Care: Understanding the importance of family dynamics, our family-centered treatment approach involves families in the recovery process. By recognizing the impact of substance use on parenting and relationships, we strive to rebuild and strengthen family connections, fostering an environment conducive to sustained recovery.

Therapeutic Support and Women-Only Groups: Recognizing the significance of shared experiences, our therapeutic support includes women-only groups and therapy sessions. These provide a safe space for women to open up, share, and collectively navigate the challenges of substance abuse, fostering a sense of community and understanding.

Key Outcomes: Our programs aim to achieve two fundamental outcomes – recognizing and understanding substance use disorders and developing strategies for long-term recovery. By addressing the root causes and providing tools for coping, we empower women to build a foundation for lasting change.
