Research has shown that women are unfortunately less likely to seek addiction treatment than men. Once women do make the brave choice to seek treatment, their chances at a successful experience are increased if they can benefit from a supportive, gender-specific treatment experience.
To best serve our female population, Northbound offers gender-responsive treatment for women through our Women’s Addiction Treatment Center and Women’s LINKS (similar to our Residential Care Services, but with a Christian-based approach) programs. The right environment is key.
In a nurturing, safe environment, women create strong, loving bonds as they support one another on the recovery journey. The program is highly flexible and adaptable while still maintaining the structure and support necessary to facilitate long-term recovery. We are located in the coastal region of Newport Beach, California, a breathtaking area that provides an inspiring atmosphere to help our clients focus on healing, with world-class opportunities for healthy activities and sobriety fellowships.
