Drug & Alcohol Abuse Services by Gender and Age in Colorado

Some of the drug and alcohol treatment programs in the state of Colorado do provide age and gender-specific treatment options. More men do go to treatment than women, and more men become addicted to drugs than women. However, women become addicted to drugs much quicker than men. Despite this, there are both men only and women only drug rehab centers. Women only treatment are excellent options for women who are pregnant and struggling with addiction, or women who have suffered physical or emotional abuse while being addicted to drugs. Men-only treatment tends to be easier for men to talk about their problems, and open-up about their issues. Age specific drug treatment would be programs for adolescents or teens, and those for seniors. Older adults who are struggling with addiction may not want to go to treatment with those who may be 20 years younger than them.
