The various aspects of alcoholism and opiate addiction happen faster for women. Because of this, extra factors need to be considered when providing treatment for women
, especially when children are involved. Many of these factors can be minimized by including Vivitrol
in alcohol and drug treatment for women.
The female human body processes alcohol and opiates differently than the male counterpart. It takes lower quantities and less time for intoxication to occur, withdrawals appear faster and stronger, and dependence and “hitting bottom” appear sooner to the first use. Social factors, coupled with alcohol or opiate cravings, can also make resisting relapse much more difficult.
and opiate cravings
are major relapse triggers for both men and women suffering addiction. But women commonly face social situations that involve peer pressure, predators, and even violence that invite relapse. While these situations and other forms of stress may be difficult to avoid, craving reduction can reduce the chance that a relapse will occur.
Tarzana Treatment Centers provides Vivitrol for alcohol and opiate craving reduction. Alcoholics, heroin, and prescription painkiller addicts relapse in large part due to cravings. By removing this trigger, women can better focus on core issues that keep them drinking or using drugs. It also takes away the added pressure to drink or use in social situations.
Telemedicine services are also available with online medical care, online mental health treatment, and online alcohol and drug treatment.
