Women's Mental Health Treatment
At Canyon Crossing Recovery, we understand that mental health and addiction go hand in hand. To heal, it is necessary to address both conditions simultaneously. That’s why we provide comprehensive mental health care for our residents, as well as primary mental health treatment for those with a history of substance use disorder.
Mental Illness in Women
Men and women experience mental illness differently. First, certain conditions may be more common among women – depression and anxiety both occur at higher rates among women than men. Mental illnesses like borderline personality disorder are diagnosed almost entirely in women.
Next, unique physical causes, such as hormonal imbalances, lead to conditions like PMDD (premenstrual dysphoric disorder) and perinatal depression. These diagnoses are exclusive to female patients.
Finally, social factors impact women’s mental health treatment. These include:
- Feeling unable to access care due to caregiving responsibilities.
- Rapid progression of substance abuse compared to men.
- Increased risk for trauma.
- Difficulty admitting that you need help.
- Coping through harmful means, like drinking or drug use.
- Needing to recover in an environment of support and relationship.
These dynamics should all be considered when discussing women’s only mental health treatment. At Canyon Crossing Recovery, we provide a restorative, communal setting for complete healing.
