Benefits of Halfway Houses for Women
A halfway house for women, more commonly known as a sober living home, is the final stage in addiction treatment and is geared towards helping men and women transition from inpatient treatment back into fully independent living. Halfway houses must be gender-specific, seeing as men and women tend to face different problems in early recovery, and a gender-specific setting is conducive to more effective healing and the maintenance of long-term sobriety. Halfway houses provide extra support and accountability and offer a beneficial level of structure as well as access to around-the-clock support that is not an option in completely independent living.
At Riverbend Residence, we believe in the importance of gender-specific sober living, and we offer two halfway houses for men and two halfway houses for women. Our halfway houses for women provide a supportive, safe, and structured environment geared towards continuous growth and relapse prevention.
Why a Halfway House for Women?
There are obvious and inherent differences between men and women, and because of this, their experiences with active addiction and recovery will be different. When it comes to developing a treatment plan, it is important to consider the unique experiences that women have. There are many benefits of halfway houses for women, including the ability for women to relate to one another and learn how to develop healthy relationships. Interestingly enough, women who struggle with substance abuse disorders have a more difficult time bonding with other women.
One of the main goals of gender-specific addiction recovery is helping facilitate meaningful bonds that will ultimately blossom into life-long friendships. Women also tend to struggle with similar co-occurring disorders, such as unresolved trauma or eating disorders. Being in the same housing situation allows like-minded women to support one another and work through problems together.
Over the past two decades, the state of New Jersey has been completely ravaged by drug addiction – specifically concerning opiates like prescription painkillers and heroin. Because of this, many treatment centers and New Jersey halfway houses have been popping up throughout the state. Unfortunately, not all of these New Jersey halfway houses for women are reputable and legitimate. How can you tell? Any women’s halfway house that allows men and women to cohabitate does not likely have the well-being of its residents at heart.
