Addiction & Mental Health
Are Female Veterans More Prone to Addiction and Mental Health Issues?
Many factors can contribute to addiction in women veterans. PTSD is a significant factor, as it can lead to alcohol or drug abuse and other mental health issues.
In addition, women veterans often face unique challenges when they return to civilian life. They may feel isolated or unsupported by family and friends, making it difficult to cope with stress and trauma.
Additionally, women veterans may have difficulty accessing quality healthcare, making it difficult to get the help they need for addiction or mental health issues.

Types of Care for Veterans Needing Addiction Treatment
Residential or Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab
The most popular type of program is inpatient treatment, which involves staying at a residential facility for 30 days or more.
During this time, you will receive around-the-clock care from a team of medical professionals. A women’s residential drug rehab center is often the most effective treatment, as it allows you to focus on your recovery without distractions.
Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab
Outpatient treatment allows you to live at home while receiving treatment. This type of treatment is often less expensive than inpatient treatment. While this approach to treatment is less intensive, it may be suitable for those with mild substance abuse issues and those who do not require detox before treatment.
A women’s outpatient program can also be effective as an opportunity for continuing care after a residential program ends.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
Partial hospitalization (PHP) is an outpatient treatment that is more intensive than traditional outpatient treatment.
During a PHP, you will receive care during the day but can return home at night.
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
An intensive outpatient program (IOP) is similar to a PHP, but you will only receive care 3-5 days per week. Typically, this program is recommended for people who have successfully completed an inpatient or PHP program.
With family therapy, all members of your family are involved in the counseling process. This type of therapy can help heal the relationships damaged by addiction.
Support groups are an excellent way for female veterans to form connections with other women veterans struggling with addiction. These groups provide emotional support and can be a valuable part of your recovery.
12-step programs, such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), can be a helpful part of your recovery. These programs emphasize the importance of admitting that you have a problem and taking steps to improve your life.
Choosing the Right Treatment Program
Before selecting a Santa Barbara veterans rehab center, check with your insurance carrier to determine which health services your insurance cover. When selecting a treatment program, it is crucial to consider your unique needs and circumstances.
You should also consult with a medical professional to get their recommendation. Some factors to consider when choosing a treatment program include the following:
- The severity of your addiction
- Your mental and physical health
- Your financial situation
- Your personal preferences
It is also essential to ensure that the treatment program you choose offers evidence-based care.
This means that the program uses treatment methods that have been proven to be effective in scientific studies.
Finally, be sure the treatment center you select is accredited by a legitimate governing body such as the Joint Commission.
These governing bodies ensure treatment centers meet high standards for safety and quality.
