Does Gender Biases Impact an Addiction Treatment Process?

The Alcohol Rehabilitation Centre in New Delhi and the Drug Rehabilitation Centre in New Delhi have many-a-times attended to the question of the differences in the body and actions of male and female bodies in the process of addiction treatment. Well, it is a fact that the male body is largely different from the female body, as women are more likely to face various barriers in accessing substance abuse treatment unlike the male. Females also tend to seek care at a primary level in a mental or personal care setting environment which has no specialised technologies or methodologies involved which also tend to result in poor outcomes in the last phase. As when such gender differences in the treatment process is guided or pointed out, women are also charged highly than the men. Therefore, with a limited research suggestion there is a serious lack in the upgradement of addiction treatment process for the female groups and also a lack in the mixed-gender treatment programs in the country. One therefore should consider the following measures for the improvement of such standards. They are as follows:

●      Improving care for females who seek a primary mental health care setting

●      Increasing the referral of females to seek specialised methodologies and a specialised addiction treatment plan

●      Identification of men and women with gender-mixed group intervention programs

●      Addressing such gender-specific risk factors which can indeed increase the amount of treatment outcomes and initiations in the country.

 

However, over a certain period of time, there were several treatment programs on the move which actually paid a sincere notice to the programs of women and to their special requirements. However, today although not all, many treatment programs do offer gender-specific services such as mixed-gender treatment groups availability, gender-matching sessions with counsellors which are led by both male and female leaders together, with stating gender-specific treatment content. The Alcohol Rehabilitation Centre in New Delhi also provided many such ancillary or wraparound services for individuals, such as introduction to child care and parenting group sessions also, which majorly focuses on the facilitate and change in the women’s processing mind and body during the period of childbirth and after the period of childbirth. To support this fact, there are also significant numbers showcasing such treatment programs serving only women, specifically targeting only pregnant women and at times adolescent girls with offering of specialised parenting services for both the parents and for their children also at times.

 

Research also states that how the influence of substance abuse affects gender and related issues, clearly establishes various differences between the men and women body impacting on various important areas. But, it is stated that women usually consume less alcohol than men when they do drink, and also drink a lot less than in frequent terms and are also less likely to develop alcohol-related issues in the body. Also, same goes with the consumption of drugs, where it is found that men usually have a tendency to consume and purchase illicit drugs in a large ratio more than women ofcourse.
