Men and women often experience drug and alcohol addiction with different biological responses, triggers, and co-occurring issues. As a result, for some people, treatment is most successful in gender-specific programs. At Four Circles, we offer a women’s-only drug and alcohol addiction treatment program designed to empower young women who prefer to address their issues with the support of other females.
About the Women’s Program at Four Circles
Our women’s-only program places an added emphasis on self-esteem, body image, healthy relationships, and the development of positive social behaviors. Our women’s program also address depression, self-care, and the effects of trauma.
Treatments Used in Our Women’s Program
Once a week, a female therapist who specializes in women’s issues provides therapeutic and educational sessions in both one-on-one and small-group settings. In our drug and alcohol addiction adventure-based treatment program, women also have the opportunity to attend gender-specific 12-Step meetings. The women’s-only program also incorporates experiential therapies, with groups spending time in nature, exploring the outdoors, and then returning to base camp to discuss their experiences and prepare for the next stage of treatment. These adventure-based activities last two weeks and are followed by one week at base. Four Circles’ female-only program provides a unique setting for young women to begin exploring who they are physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

Why Choose the Women’s Program at Four Circles
Female-specific programs provide a compassionate, non-confrontational, and non-judgmental environment for women to share their stories, fears, struggles, and life lessons with other women who can relate. This serves as an ideal environment for young women to challenge their beliefs and behaviors in order to grow into the women they want to be, and break free from the chains of drug and alcohol addiction.
