Because their bodies tend to contain less water and more fatty tissue, women process drugs and alcohol differently to men. Women experience a faster elevation in blood alcohol content and as a result, cirrhosis of the liver, brain damage, heart disease and cancer develop more easily in female populations. Toxins remain in their bodies longer, putting them at a higher risk for substance related health problems. For example, women who drink are far more likely to suffer from breast cancer than those who do not.
Women are also more likely to suffer from depression and commit suicide than men. Depression can be and in fact often is, a contributory factor in addiction. At Sovereign Health, we specialize in dealing with co-occurring disorders, or dual diagnosis.
We recognize the fundamental physiological differences between men and women, and offer personalized treatment programs that adjust to the needs of each client.
We, at Sovereign Health, offer 30, 60 and 90 day treatment programs, followed by continued aftercare. Along with access to a local gym, we provide a range of clinical treatments combined with a variety of holistic therapies. We have comfortable, gender specific residences located in the picturesque coastal community of San Clemente, California.
Our treatment program involves an initial evaluation by our highly experienced team. This will uncover any underlying issues that may be contributing to the addiction. An individually tailored treatment program will then be designed specifically to meet the needs of the individual, both physical and emotional. Our program combines traditional clinical treatments with alternative holistic therapies. It is designed to ensure that our female clients receive the necessary care and support needed for a successful recovery.
