Traditions | Women's Recovery Center
Research has shown that women face more obstacles than men when seeking addiction treatment and are less likely to follow through with the admissions process. The Traditions Recovery Center for Women at MARR provides clients with a safe, comfortable setting where they can address issues from a “whole-person” perspective related to their addiction by offering them the following:
- High-quality gender-separate treatment
- A Disordered Eating (DE) Program for those who are appropriate
- Specialized groups and evidence-based treatment modalities to meet the needs specific to the female population.
To learn more about gender-separate addiction treatment at MARR, read “Gender-Specific Treatment (and Why It’s Essential).”
“Willingness, honesty and open-mindedness are the essentials of recovery (Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 568).” These principles provide hope to those struggling with substance use disorder.
All aspects of a person’s life including mental, physical, and spiritual well-being are addressed during treatment at MARR with the goal of lasting recovery. As women progress through the addiction recovery process, other core issues are often identified. Although MARR’s primary focus is the treatment of substance use disorder, we also address underlying issues and co-occurring disorders through the use of clinically proven, leading techniques of treatment. Such treatment includes:
- A personalized Treatment Plan including an assigned primary therapist along with an entire Treatment Team
- A Board Certified, licensed psychiatrist, master’s level clinicians, certified addiction counselors, family therapists, and a top-rated nursing staff
- Spiritual guidance deeply rooted in our gender-specific addiction treatment
Stages of Treatment
At MARR, treatment is separated into two phases with an optional Phase III of extended care. These phases are proven to provide clients with the best recovery journey possible and include:
- Phase I (6 weeks): Focuses on the foundations for recovery.
- Phase II (8 weeks): Teaches clients the best recovery life skills as they transition into a normal working routine.
- Phase III (12 weeks+): Sober living communities to continue practicing the recovery lifestyle with peer accountability and support.
