Women’s Addiction Treatment Center in Lancaster, CA


Studies have shown that separating the genders during addiction treatment can have a positive impact on recovery. That’s why at Design for Change, we provide women with their own space so that their individual needs can be addressed more effectively.

When you arrive at our center for drug rehab for women in Lancaster CA, you enter into an environment where you can focus solely on healing – both physically and mentally. The ability to cut down on potential distractions makes the road to recovery not only more effective, but also allows it to occur at a much faster rate.

Recovering at our Women’s Rehab Center

Getting clean is hard and involves focusing heavily amid a range of emotions – meaning that developing a serious relationship during the recovery process can be a problem.
While both genders are susceptible to substance abuse, the ways in which they become addicted are often times very different. Not only that, the effects of alcohol and drugs on their bodies can contrast greatly.

Our clients at Design for Change’s women’s rehab center in Lancaster, CA are free to express their feelings in an environment that’s free from judgment. They can share stories about their experiences, know they’re not alone, and learn much more about themselves. In the process, supportive relationships are formed as they walk confidently towards sobriety. At Design for Change’s women’s rehab center, our clients learn about:

  • Self-Love
  • Self-Care
  • Emotions
  • Roles
  • Relationships
  • Communication
  • Boundaries, etc.

Women at Design for Change also gain valuable tools that allow them to overcome addiction, while focusing on:

  • 12 Steps (note that we also offer “non 12 step” alternatives)
  • Strategies for coping
  • Meditation
  • Boundaries
  • How to cope
  • Triggers
  • Therapy & Counseling
  • Stressors, etc.

Women’s Rehab Center with a Dual Diagnosis Focus

Drug or alcohol addiction is often times paired with some kind of mental illness – whether it’s depression, anxiety, bi-polar disorder, or some form of personality disorder. Our counseling sessions occur within an intimate environment, where no more than 6 women are paired per counselor. This provides a more personalized experience, so that an emphasis is placed on a greater sharing of stories and experiences. In effect, bonding with one another becomes a critical part of the recovery process.

Support for Families

It’s important to understand that addiction doesn’t just affect those struggling with substance abuse – it can also have a profound impact on the families and loved ones of those who care for the individual. That’s why Design for Change provides a full range of addiction support services for the families of the women in our care, whether it’s accomplished through family therapy, psychodrama (using dramatic play to explore internal & external conflicts), or reactive attachment therapy (addressing attachment issues). Learn more about our support for families by visiting our Family Program Page. Addiction is much more than a chemical and there’s no easy fix. Substance abuse affects us on a number of levels – whether it’s our minds, bodies, or even our spirits. But by eliminating distractions and focusing solely on what matters most, you can move beyond and heal.
