    Historically, women have not done as well as men in substance abuse treatment. The entry into treatment, retention and completion of most programs are lower for women than men. The difference is mainly because women face unique barriers when seeking treatment such as the fear of social isolation, mainly the fear of being stigmatized. Lionrock Recovery innovative approach to drug and alcohol treatment offers the best strategy to overcoming these barriers, this explains why 80-90% of the program’s participants are women! I am hopeful that in the near future third-party payers would see the effectiveness of this innovative approach to drug and alcohol treatment and provide insurance coverage to their clients.
