The city was also ranked third in 2009 as one of “America’s Ten Best Places to Grow Up.” Overland Park has an excellent school system and is attractive to new employers, making it a warm and friendly community for everyone.

Even in the nicest communities, drug use still occurs and drug addicts accustomed to a comfortable way of living may have particular treatment needs. This is especially true of the 16 percent of addicts who are female. In Overland Park, there are 100 females for every 94 males, meaning there are a great number of residents that must carefully consider the type of facility they’re comfortable attending, and the demographic of patients they’ll feel best about having in their company during the duration of treatment.

Selecting Appropriate Detox Care for Women

Regardless of your background, selecting the appropriate type of rehab care is essential for your recovery success as a female addict. These questions can help you evaluate your treatment needs:

  1. Are you comfortable staying in an environment where there are people of all ages and all genders?
  2. Are you comfortable opening up to either males or females?
  3. Would you like to be in an environment where only those who best relate to you are present?
  4. Would you prefer an environment where staff are used to providing treatment to a certain demographic of patients so they can address your unique needs?

There are other factors to consider when choosing a rehab facility but if you answered “yes” to the latter questions and “no” to the first, then you’re best-suited to a rehab facility that only accepts patients of one gender. These questions can be asked of men, but typically it’s women that feel greater comfort when in the companionship of others of the same gender. So below we’ve provided more details on treatment for female addicts to help you understand the benefits you’ll receive when you choose women-only detox.
