Ledgehill for Women Treatment Centre

Concurrent Trauma & Addiction Program

Why is a facility to help treat women specifically so essential? Because for many women, men are the cause of the trauma they have faced, which may have in turn lead to substance abuse and addiction. Childhood abuse, domestic abuse, and sexual assault at the hands of men are far too common. As a result, many women seek treatment with other women in recovery. The shared bond can help build relationships and support that aid in long-term recovery.
