Second Chance Drug Treatment – Start Your Recovery Today
Alcoholism and addiction affect women differently than men
Over 40 years of research and working with women has shown us that the diseases of alcoholism and addiction affect women very differently from men. You can read the details here, but as a woman, you should understand that these diseases take a greater toll on your body and are more likely to be accompanied by mental health or emotional conditions, like depression or trauma, sometimes referred to as co-occurring disorders. Therefore, it’s really important that you receive a professional assessment of your unique problems. Of course, Second Chance provides these assessments in our Clinical offices and we’d be more than happy to set up an appointment for you with one of our Clinical Therapists.
A self-screening tool may give you some answers
If you don’t think you’re quite ready to take the important step of asking for a professional assessment, here is a link to a FREE self screening test, the Michigan Alcohol (and Drug) Screening Test (MAST). If you are really honest with yourself, the results of this totally confidential self-assessment should give you some guidance as to whether you would benefit by seeking professional help. It’s only 22 questions long and has been proven to be quite predictive. Remember, no one but you will see the results of this test (unless you choose to share them), so we encourage total honesty.
