Women’s treatment is on the precipice of innovative growth if we maintain our focus on the wellness of the entire woman. Using the Biopsychosocial Model of Addiction and Recovery, we will review aspects of addiction, mental health, and trauma, highlighting the nuances that make women and their care unique. The intersection of these concerns makes treatment complicated and acute, yet it leaves room for extraordinary healing. In order to provide a path to wellness, we will provide a clinical framework to engage women in active treatment and their continuum of care.
