Viewpoint Women’s Recovery
Women are often more likely than men to respond to stress by internalizing problems, leading to depression and generalized emotional distress. At Viewpoint, we offer gender-specific treatment groups because many women feel more comfortable expressing themselves in groups of other women. We take a holistic and compassionate approach to mental health treatment, medication management, nutrition, and stress management. Our team does everything they can to accommodate our guests during their stay. We offer the following specialty programs:
- Equine therapy
- Music therapy
- Art therapy
- Yoga therapy
- Adventure therapy
Why Gender-Specific Treatment?
Some treatment centers treat men and women in the same environment, rather than separating people by gender. While our dual diagnosis treatment center welcomes people of all gender identities, we offer gender-specific treatment because many women find that women-only support groups can have a profoundly positive effect on their healing. The professional treatment team at the Viewpoint Dual Recovery Center welcomes you into their dual diagnosis treatment program for women.
Having a mental health diagnosis along with substance use disorder is known as a dual diagnosis. Treating both conditions simultaneously offers people their best chance to heal.

Your Needs, Your Recovery
Women often have unique needs that require a distinctive approach to treatment.
You are not alone if you are a woman who needs mental health and substance abuse treatment. Finding the right women’s rehab program allows women to get the support they need. The caring team at the Viewpoint Dual Recovery Program recognizes the unique issues faced by women in treatment, which is backed by science. Our programs treat women who are struggling to cope with many experiences, including:
- Anxiety and depression
- Physical abuse or sexual abuse
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Family history of alcoholism and drug addiction
- Addiction-related health issues
- Stress of raising a family
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) also explains that women sometimes turn to substance abuse to cope with pain or because of attempting to treat mental health disorders.
Dual Diagnosis in Women
Women with dual diagnosis disorders commonly abuse several drugs. For example, researchers concluded that 50 percent of women responding to questions about substance abuse indicated that they use alcohol. The Office on Women’s Health (OWH) suggests that nearly 27 million women have abused drugs within the past year, including prescription drugs.
Other issues affecting women include:
- Women abuse prescription drugs for different reasons than reasons that men abuse prescription drugs
- Women may experience worse symptoms than men do by the time a woman seeks treatment for substance abuse or dual diagnosis disorder
- Nearly 20 women die of a prescription drug overdose every day
- Women potentially have a more difficult time than men when attempting to stop using certain substances
Women who abuse some drugs are at higher risk than men for experiencing panic attacks, depression, or an anxiety disorder compared to men who abuse certain drugs.
The Viewpoint Dual Recovery Center offers a variety of services for women in treatment. Implementing our unique approach, we offer UHELP. This acronym stands for Understand, Heal, Educate, Love, and Practice. Our Viewpoint team has the knowledge and skills to guide you through each step of your recovery process. Discover the effect of recovery that includes evidence-based interventions, development, and implementation of your individualized treatment plan, along with individual and group therapy for women.
Women’s treatment for dual diagnosis at Viewpoint Dual Recovery Center also includes individual, family therapy, equine therapy, yoga, exercise, nutrition and wellness, art and music therapy, and relapse prevention.
