Female alcoholism

Unlike men, women are more stable psychologically, they have a stronger self-preservation instinct, so the number of the fairer sex in the total number of stable drinkers does not exceed 30%.

Nevertheless, a man goes from alcohol abuse to chronic alcoholism in 7-10 years, while a woman takes only 5 years to do this. Such a rapid course of the disease is explained by the peculiarity of metabolism – in the woman’s body there are much fewer enzymes that are responsible for the breakdown of ethanol. Because of this, the latter remains in the stomach longer, and the concentration of alcohol in the blood increases. As a result, its destructive effect on the body as a whole increases, which, with prolonged abuse, leads to serious disturbances in the central nervous system, liver and gastrointestinal tract.

The destructive effect of alcohol on the female body

Alcohol has an extremely negative effect on the reproductive function and the endocrine system of a woman:

  • synthesis of thyroid hormones decreases;
  • provokes abortion;
  • leads to mutations in the embryo:
  • decreased sex drive;
  • the risk of developing breast cancer increases.

In addition, the cardiovascular system suffers from alcohol and its metabolites, and with “beer alcoholism” cardiomyopathy develops.

Treatment of female alcoholism in the center “Transformation”

The fight against female alcoholism is carried out on the basis of the same principles as with male alcoholism, but this requires more effort, time, and an exceptional understanding of female psychology. Private rehabilitation center “Transformation” at the International Anti-Drug Association & nbsp; carries out a comprehensive anonymous treatment for alcohol dependence, based on the effective “12 steps” program. It was developed in the 1930s, and the disease model within its framework is considered as a complex of biological, mental, social and spiritual causes. The program is universal and applies to all types of addiction, but at the same time it uses an individual approach to each patient.

The rehabilitation course is developed for each client individually and includes regular group and individual work with a psychologist and a rehabilitation therapist, classes aimed at spiritual and moral change of personality, art therapy of addiction, as well as sports events. The center offers various programs of specialized resocialization. After undergoing treatment for female alcohol addiction, prevention and support of clients and their families is carried out in anonymous self-help groups.

The effectiveness of the treatment of female alcoholism depends on the participation in the transformation process not only of the addict, but also of his relatives, since alcoholism is known to be a family disease. In some cases, it is possible to resort to compulsory treatment without the consent of the patient (voluntary-compulsory motivation). If you need an emergency drug treatment – please contact us, we are always ready to help.

Before I turned to MAA for help, it seemed to me that my life had lost all meaning. I was on the verge of being overcome by feelings of despair. Thoughts about death. The drug has destroyed all areas of my life. Rehabilitation restored my confidence in myself. The team of the IAA, Dnipro region, in my opinion, performed a miracle. I completed the program and made the decision to learn and develop in the organization. The support of the MAA therapeutic community gives me the confidence and strength to move on and live soberly.

I am 18 years old. I have been drinking alcohol for 3 years, which is why all these years I got into unpleasant situations, after which I miraculously remained alive. Because of my use, I lost control of myself, relations with my family deteriorated intolerable. At one point, my father brought me to rehabilitation, for which I am now grateful to him after completing a full course of rehabilitation. I had enough time to think it over and put everything in its place in my delusions and inability to control my use and further life. This organization taught me a lot. First, I learned to live in sobriety, cry and laugh with real feelings, say “I love” my parents, appreciate many little things that I had not previously paid attention to, reconsidered my views on the world. MAA is changing my life in stages.

I express my deep gratitude to the staff of the center for their desire to make our relatives healthy, to guide them along the difficult path to a sober life and to instill a desire to stay sober. Roman has been married for three years. When our child was born, I found out that my husband is a drug addict. He was on the verge and did not know how to continue to live, but he wanted to get rid of this bad habit. Roman's mom and I found an ad for MAA Dnipro on the Internet and called there. The next day he was already at the center, where he began to undergo a rehabilitation program in the city of Dnipro. 30 months have passed, my husband is sober. At the moment, he works in the same center where he underwent rehabilitation. Now my husband is helping other addicts to fight the “disease”. Now we rejoice in every day we have lived, I have no more anxiety for my husband, for the future of our family. I know that everything will be fine now. I don't want to go back to the past. Thanks to the center, my spouse climbed out of the bottom, where drugs had lowered him. I wish you health, success in your hard work, to which you devote your life. Thank you.
