Addiction Treatment for Women

New Found Life Women's Program

For over 28 years, the team at New Found Life has helped women to recover from addiction to drugs and alcohol. Our gender-specific residential program offers women’s-only sessions and activities, customized clinical programming, and trauma treatment designed to meet the needs of women.

Women's Program

A Safe Place to Recover

Our therapies are specifically designed to target issues specific to women. Each gender faces different challenges in addiction and recovery. Women are more likely to develop a substance use disorder at a faster rate than their male counterparts (“telescoping”). They also have a difficult time obtaining treatment and may deal with trauma at higher rates than men. Finally, research shows that women benefit from a communal, relationship-based approach to addiction recovery.

At New Found Life, we have created an environment where women can feel safe and secure during treatment. The cornerstones of this are women’s-only group meetings and one-on-one time with female staff members and clinicians. Within these settings, residents express themselves without the tensions that may exist in mixed-gender groups.

A Gender-Specific Therapeutic Approach

At our Long Beach rehab center for women, we provide gender-specific programming, such as…

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy
  • Parenting classes
  • Life skills training
  • Intensive trauma therapy
  • Individual and group counseling
  • Experiential and equine therapies
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing
  • Case management services
  • Family program
  • Dual diagnosis (treatment for co-occurring disorders)
  • Therapeutic focus on women’s issues
  • Family support groups

New Found Life also has a strong female alumni support network. We are very focused on connecting women with their peers in 12-Step groups and Alumni Sober Support after treatment has concluded. This added level of support and accountability ensures that each resident enjoys a smooth transition back to her home and community.
