Helping Women and Youth Girls Reclaim their Lives and Heal from Addiction
At Westminster House Society, we recognize that women seeking alcohol and drug addiction treatment have specific needs. There are differences between the challenges men face and those faced by women when it comes to seeking and embracing recovery. Most women have additional familial responsibilities, and they have to deal with the social stigma attached to women who can’t control their alcohol or drug use.
Westminster House Society is a residential addiction recovery centre for youth girls and women healing from addiction. We aim to promote and facilitate a desire for recovery, helping women help themselves overcome addiction. That’s what has made us a leader when it comes to drug rehab centers in Vancouver. Our treatment programs are designed to provide women with the necessary tools to trust their own ability to reclaim a drug-free existence. We are a unique treatment centre that focuses on teaching women how to live their life in recovery.
The Best Drug Rehab for Women in BC
Much progress has been made regarding women’s rights over the last fifty years. Still, there is a bias regarding acceptable behaviours, resulting in more judgement towards women. Stereotypes that work against women still exist on some level, leading to many people judging women who abuse drugs or alcohol more harshly than men.
As a result, women tend to be more secretive about their substance abuse and, of more significant concern, more hesitant to seek help at a drug rehab in BC when they finally realize that their substance use has crossed over into the world of alcohol and drug addiction. That’s why we have shaped our treatment programs to address the specific concerns faced by women seeking our help.
Helping Women Regain their Confidence and Lives
One of the main reasons Westminster House Society is regarded as one of Vancouver’s best drug rehab centres is that our approach to helping women overcome their addictions involves holistic treatment.
We believe that healthy women are great contributors to society. Our goal at Westminster House is to help women build resilience so that they may overcome the effects of trauma and addiction and reclaim their lives in our treatment centre in Vancouver.
