Treatment of female drug addiction
Drug addiction without pity breaks the fate of people, regardless of age, gender, nationality. This terrible disease can be compared to an epidemic, but especially insidious is female drug addiction, since in this case not only the future of a woman, but also the life of her children is in question.
Peculiarities of female drug addiction
The consequences of drug use for the female body:
- menstrual irregularities (or disappearance).
- the birth of underdeveloped children.
- blocking ovulation.
Women’s drug addiction, unlike men’s, has its own developmental characteristics. They are caused, first of all, by the difference in the work of the central mechanisms of the nervous system, which, when using drugs, leads to a higher concentration of dopamine, a neurotransmitter responsible for the psychoemotional state of a person. Unlike men, who develop depression and bad moods during the formation of addiction, women start using drugs to cope with these conditions.
In addition, in the liver of the weaker sex there are significantly fewer enzymes that are responsible for the metabolism of chemicals. Thus, their body quickly adapts to drug use, and the treatment of female drug addiction is a more complex and lengthy process.
Drug addiction among women has another feature – the fair sex very rarely start taking drugs on their own. Most often, they are persuaded to do this by close men, thus offering them to experience new sensations.

Acknowledging Our Powerlessness: The first step in the program for the addict is to admit that he is no longer in control of his own life. Understanding that we cannot save our lives on our own is the first step to our recovery.
In his struggle with the disease, the patient can enlist the help of God, such as he sees him.
The patient learns to trust the power that leads him to recovery; he completely delegates control of his life to this power.
The stage of careful introspection: the patient reveals his hidden fears and negative experiences to the group in order to understand the root cause of the development of the disease.
The patient accepts himself and his negative experience; he admits his mistakes not only to himself, but also to his loved ones and to God leading him.
The patient prepares for active actions aimed at getting rid of the disease. He understands that alcohol or drugs is not the cause of addiction. The reason lies in himself. You can defeat addiction only by changing yourself.
