Pine Grove Women's Center
Addiction Treatment for Women
What Is The Women's Center?
Pine Grove’s Women’s Center is a 12-week treatment program for women who struggle with chemical dependency. Our combined expertise in substance and process addictions positions the Women’s Center as one of the few treatment centers nationwide who actively treat women with a co-occurring eating disorder.
The Women’s Center incorporates the best of science and tradition to help women find hope and recover from their addictions. At the Women’s Center, our experienced staff integrates several theoretical perspectives, including medical, psychiatric, evidence based therapies, and 12-step philosophy and practice to help our patients live a meaningful and healthy life.
Why We Are Special
At the Women’s Center, patients have the opportunity to focus solely on their recovery and inner growth in a supportive environment, giving them the necessary tools to achieve their personal and professional goals.
Assessment Phase (First 2 weeks of treatment)
This initial phase of treatment focuses on orientating and stabilizing patients. This is accomplished by providing patients with a thorough medical, psychological, and nutritional assessment. Additionally, patients receive a variety of psychosocial assessments during this phase.
This second phase hallmarks the beginning of examination and breaking through any denial surrounding a patient’s addiction. The Breakthrough Phase allows patients to understand the severity and consequences of their addictive behaviors, which have impacted their lives and their loved ones.
This phase embraces the deepening of self-discovery by processing the key experiences which have impacted one’s life. Insight acquired allows patients to fully challenge dysfunctional thoughts and behaviors that support their addiction. Through this journey, patients become intensely aware of old, emotional thinking and behavioral patterns that kept them from living a healthy, fulfilling life.
During this final phase of treatment, patients embrace the joy and spiritual freedom of recovery. Patients that reach this phase have an opportunity to be fully proactive in their recovery by applying learned skills and behaviors in various community settings.
The Family Therapy Program assists in the total care of patients by providing education and intensive group therapy for patients and their families. Family Week consists of five days where the healing process, within a family impacted by addiction, begins. Licensed and certified Pine Grove therapists work with families to improve communication about the patient’s addiction. Family Week also provides time for families to meet with the Women's Center staff and learn more about the recovery process, so they may provide needed support for their loved one.
Due to the complexity of treating women with chemical dependency, Pine Grove’s Women's Center features a multi-disciplinary team consisting of a Program Director, Clinical Director, Psychiatrist, Addictionologist, Nurses, Clinical Therapists, Counselors, a certified Dietician, and various recreational professionals.
The Women’s Center offers treatment in a peaceful and secluded environment. The program is housed in a renovated 10,000 square foot manor home. The facility includes an outdoor pool, spacious kitchen, and a home-like environment for patients. Semi-private bedrooms are designed with Southern charm.
The helpful staff also encourages patients to take advantage of a nearby exercise facility, affiliated with Pine Grove.

At Pine Grove Behavioral Health & Addiction Services, our approach to sexual addiction treatment is gender focused. Patients attending the Women’s Center’s sexual addiction treatment program will live and receive treatment in a community with other women in recovery. Some of the features of the Women’s Center’s sexual addiction treatment program include, twice weekly group therapy sessions within a gender focused setting with a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist. Additionally, Women’s Center patients within this treatment track will participate in:

Women’s Center patients, with Pine Grove’s sexual addiction treatment program will also spend over 10 hours a week for six weeks in psycho-educational activities, such as lectures, in a mixed gender setting at Pine Grove’s Gratitude program, which treats men. This approach allows a patient to do the majority of their psychological work in a gender focused setting at the Women’s Center, while also allowing them to work through their problematic relational issues in a structured and very well supervised mixed gender setting. This portion of the treatment program at Gratitude incorporates Patrick Carnes’s 30-task model.
The length of the sexual addiction treatment program at the Women’s Center is customized according to the unique needs of each patient, and the specific recommendations of Pine Grove’s treatment team.
