Leading Addiction Rehab Center For Women in Dallas
Women’s Substance Abuse and Intimacy Disorders Self-Test
Here are 10 questions to help you determine if relationship and intimacy issues are undermining your ability to live a healthy, satisfying, sober life:
1. Do you ever use alcohol or other drugs to improve or substitute for a more fulfilling sexual and intimate life?
2. Do you find that your friendships and/or romantic relationships most often involve others who frequently drink or get high?
3. Have you ever felt that your relationship with food or spending has gotten out of control?
4. Do you drink or use other drugs simply to enjoy or tolerate sex?
5. Do you tend to lose interest once the “newness” of a romantic partner has worn off?
6. Do you use alcohol or other drugs to help you tolerate neglectful, unrewarding, abusive and/or emotionally unavailable relationships?
7. When you’re not in a relationship, do you drink or use drugs to cope with the discomfort of being alone?
8. Did you experience abandonment, neglect or abuse in childhood?
9. Does shame or embarrassment about past or present romantic or sexual experiences relate to your use of alcohol or other drugs?
10. Have you been unsuccessful at previous attempts in treatment due to the distraction of romantic or sexual relationships?
If you answered yes to three or more questions, you can find support and healing at The Substance Abuse and Intimacy Disorders (SAID) Program at The Right Step Dallas/Ft. Worth.
Intimacy Disorders and Substance Abuse Treatment in Texas
The Substance Abuse and Intimacy Disorders (SAID) Program at The Right Step Dallas/Ft. Worth is an innovative women’s drug and alcohol treatment program with an emphasis on intimacy and relationship healing.
Over many years of providing addiction treatment we have noted that many women struggle to stay sober from alcohol and other drugs related to under-recognized, co-occurring emotional and relationship challenges, both past and present. Our goal is to openly address these concerns with the help of knowledgeable female professionals who know how to eliminate substance abuse, while also bringing greater connection and health to your life and relationships.

Why a Women-Only Program?
One of the greatest strengths of early recovery lies in women developing the kind of non-sexual, non-romantic, community support that can only come from other women in a safe treatment setting. And here’s why:
- Removing the distractions of male attention also removes unnecessary worries about how you look or what others think.
- In a dedicated women’s program, it often feels safer to discuss deeply personal topics such as body image, trauma, sexuality and relationships.
- By removing any pressure or competition for male attention, there are fewer distractions from the difficult work of self-examination and recovery.
- A close-knit community of women provides an opportunity to learn from and bond with peers of all different ages and perspectives.
- Women in the SAID program are all “growing together,” while working on the same life goals.
- Well-managed, women-only treatment environments offer a safer, more supportive community that helps to encourage self-acceptance, shame reduction, and meaningful, healing relationships.
