Are Women More at Risk of Developing Addiction and Mental Health Issues?

Please think about it. 

Have you lost much of the joy you once felt? Do you think you might be drinking a bit too much? Are you struggling in an abusive or toxic relationship? Do you have years of living with low self-worth resulting in a less-than-desirable life? Do you drink by yourself a lot?

Women may experience certain environmental, psychological, and biological challenges related to gender that have a significant impact on the choices they make later in life. Many wonder where they can find someone to trust and to talk about these concerns. If not addressed properly, these challenges can turn into burdens that often lead to anxiety, depression, and a lost sense of self.

Why Seek Therapy for Women’s Issues?

Substance use is often a secretive, isolating experience for many women. This reality can take a serious toll on a woman’s emotional, physical, and mental health. The choice to hide the reality of using substances to dull the pain is very risky.  

By seeking therapy, a woman can begin privately to get the help she needs in overcoming the issues she has been struggling with by herself. Getting the concerns out in the open with someone safe is a good beginning.
