Social Change and Recovery

Professionals didn’t always know what we know today. Alcohol recovery treatment used to look much more like punishment.

Society’s response to alcohol abuse says much about the way a culture regards addiction. You might remember Otis Campbell, the “town drunk” in Mayberry R.F.D., who regularly woke up in a jail cell because of an addiction to alcohol. Viewers laughed, but this scene was reflecting real attitudes of the early 1900s. The most prestigious medical journals of the time would prescribe physical restraint for this “type of drinker.”

In the 21st century, professionals know punishment and force can neither control nor heal addictions. People today understand alcoholism as a disease, not a character flaw. Attitudes have changed 360 degrees. Yet we still have a way to go until all people can receive the full benefits of the reforms that led to modern addiction services.

In short, we understand the critical need to ensure female clients are enabled to address longtime social difficulties and recover in strength.

Gender Differences

The reasons for addiction in women can involve particular histories. Many women are survivors of physical abuse, mental abuse, or, very often, both. Boys and men are not immune from the plague of abuse and neglect, but a higher percentage of girls and women are abuse survivors.

Women need to know they are not alone. A large number of women have endured trauma connected with domestic violence involving their parents, sometimes involving a brother or sister, and later involving intimate partners. Sometimes the abuse involves a stranger. Often it involves someone we trust, or should have been free to trust.

Neglect or abuse, and surviving the trauma, can leave unhealed wounds that later connect to addictions. A drink may seem, at the time, to numb pain and stress. Drugs might seem, at the time, to be effective self-medication.

Addiction services that fail to acknowledge those original wounds will heal only to a certain extent. In many women, addiction problems recur. The pattern repeats itself unless and until the client finds therapy that acknowledges the origins of trauma.

Only if the original trauma can be addressed, can its lingering pain be acknowledged and understood, and its damaging effects deactivated. Then new life skills can be learned to genuinely address the urge to use drugs or pick up a drink.

Self-blame might also impact women specifically. Research has found depression and shame (in contrast to the more frequently male response of detachment) is frequent in female addiction sufferers. Why does self-blame happen? Does the treatment we seek understand this pattern and work with us on it? If not, it might fail us.

Some women will avoid addiction services entirely because they feel seeking treatment is an admission of fault. Or once in treatment they might not wish to openly deal with what’s happened in their lives. Treatment should be a sanctuary, where clients are unafraid and empowered to heal in a deep and lasting way.

Communication Styles Matter

Effective recovery from alcohol and other addiction problems requires a design that understands challenges women face. It acknowledges the work each women does in recovery. It provides support systems and the care a client needs. Appropriate therapy has the capacity to address trauma, depression, self-worth issues, self-blame, and anger.

Research also suggests that the style of communication can be a key in women’s recovery. Healing can be benefited by affirming, supportive surroundings and empathetic treatment. Sharing, trust, and bonds are vital to most women in recovery.  More typical individual approaches can fall short if they do not include a way for clients to find supportive, affirming environments.

In many cases, alcohol lends itself to an addiction beginning in college years—a time fraught with stressful relationships, competition, and many new concerns about our long-term prospects. Drinking is a well-worn path to social bonding and acceptance. Recovery needs to understand this need. Social acceptance can come through other activities and in other environments. The new environments must support the personal commitment to breaking (rather than reinforcing) the addiction cycle.

Supportive therapy can ensure that a participant is safe when discussing her experiences and that the discussion is welcomed and helpful. Such an environment is conducive to authentic recovery.

Traditional, individual therapy sessions, in which a counselor teaches, may be missing a vital chance for women’s healing that develops through a community in which women have the opportunity to both offer and receive in the process of healing. This community environment can be very helpful in long time periods, where the communication develops in supportive groups. For most people, forming relationships based on a healing mission, of sharing narratives of injury and transformation, will foster a climate for healing that had never been there before.

Mothers in Recovery

If you’re reading this, you’ll already be aware that mothers need access to special resources in recovery.  Pregnant people and mothers have particular reasons to become healed, to regain strength. Mothers and expectant mothers are busy. They wear several hats. They seek sobriety as a base for full capability to be a creative human being, the parent to a child, and, perhaps, a life partner to another adult.

All of these identities are specific and important in their own right, and working on them all at once can be daunting to say the least!

Not only standard addiction treatments, but also help in each of these aspects must be available to a woman seeking recovery. Professional advice on parenting, on healthy relationships, and on affordable housing are important factors.

Such offerings support women to address addiction and enter recovery. They assure the client: Yes, there is help available in the struggles and joys of raising a child well. There is support for maintaining healthy and helpful  relationships in life.

Pregnancy requires support for the expectant mother’s health—and the start of a new life. We understand this journey. It can mean getting up-to-date on prenatal medical care, maintaining healthy weight changes, and keeping clean and sober “for two.” Properly supported, our clients can meet these challenges and make this milestone a time of hope and beauty. Female-focused therapy is quite helpful for parents as well as expectant parents—both for the client and the child whose life can also be transformed!
