Substance Abuse Rates in Women

Table of Contents

A 2019 report of the National Survey on Drug Use and Health produced by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) reported that 5.6% of women over the age of 18 are currently living with a substance use disorder. Approximately 2.9 million of these women struggle with illicit drugs, while an estimated 5.2 million women struggle with alcohol use. In addition to addiction, this report showed that an estimated 4.6 million women in the United States were living with a substance use disorder and a mental illness. 

Data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health from the years 2016 to 2019 consistently show that women between the ages of 18 to 25 had a higher prevalence of abusing alcohol, opioids, prescription pain relievers, cocaine, methamphetamine, and marijuana.

the affect on women

How Does Addiction Affect Women Differently?

Two main factors contribute to the differences we see between how men and women are impacted by addiction. The first of which would be biology. Women’s bodies are different from men’s and work differently in some respects. If we look at drinking alcohol as an example, we often see that women can consume fewer drinks to reach the same euphoric effects as a man. This is due to the physical differences within a woman’s body, specifically, the higher body fat ratio commonly found in women’s bodies.

Women are at risk of other health concerns with long-term use and misuse of drugs and alcohol. For example, prolonged use of drugs and alcohol can negatively impact a woman’s fertility. Women are also at a higher risk of developing diabetes and cardiovascular disorders. 

The second way that differs in how men and women experience addiction is due to the societal expectations and pressures that are placed on women. Women are often viewed as the caretakers for their families and loved ones. This role, or expectation, can serve as a barrier for women to get the treatment that they need. Additionally, stereotypes for women, such as being emotional, can impact a woman’s perception of the consequences they are facing from their substance use.

The Barriers for women

What Are the Barriers to Addiction Treatment for Women?

Women can experience some of the same barriers as men when it comes to receiving addiction treatment. This can include having access to quality health care, being unable to afford proper treatment, and being in denial of the severity of their addiction. 

Women often face additional stigmas when it comes to receiving addiction treatment, especially if the woman is pregnant, breastfeeding, or a mother. Any shame or guilt a woman feels about her use is likely amplified when she worries about how others will perceive her use. Fear of being judged is also a commonly reported barrier for women. Similarly, women who are unable to find child care are less likely to receive the addiction treatment that they need. 

Laguna View Detox offers women’s addiction treatment in Los Angeles, CA. In addition to traditional treatment approaches, our treatment program can provide you with co-occurring disorder treatment. For many, mental health concerns and their use of substances are intertwined, which speaks for the importance of holistic care. We invite you to speak with a Laguna View Detox representative by calling (866) 932-3206. 

The Pros of specialized treatment

What Are the Benefits of a Women's Rehab Center in Los Angeles?

Enrolling in a women’s addiction treatment program means that you will be in a treatment program that specifically addresses concerns that you have experienced as a woman. Additionally, many women find that being in a treatment group of women allows them to feel more comfortable and vulnerable in sessions which can only enhance their treatment gains. 

Being in a treatment program with other women can also help normalize a woman’s experience and validate their thoughts and emotions. Addiction often leads to isolation, which tends to make us think that our experience is different from others and that we are alone. By engaging in a women’s only group, you will quickly learn that you are not alone and that you are worthy of a healthier life. Women’s treatment groups can help women work through the shame and guilt that they have been carrying regarding their use. 

Laguna View Detox is the ideal Los Angeles drug and alcohol rehab for women. Our addiction treatment program combines traditional treatment approaches, such as group and individual therapy, with holistic approaches, including art therapy, anger management, and yoga.
