Women do recover.

Our alcohol and drug addiction treatment center in Cincinnati, Ohio, welcomes any woman struggling with tackling a substance use disorder (SUD). Hotel California by the Sea is ready to help you put your world back together and get back to being you.

Our treatment center in Cincinnati offers detox, residential treatment, and outpatient treatment to women struggling with substance abuse. However, our difference lies in our program’s whole-person design to treating women for addiction.

We’ve created special programs for women struggling with trauma, financial issues, legal issues, and co-occurring disorders alongside their addiction. We help women pursue their academic and professional dreams through our career resources program and empower them with our support, structure, and guidance at our optional and exclusive transitional living homes.

At Hotel California by the Sea, our goal for our clients isn’t just to recover from drug and alcohol abuse, but to create a sober and sustainable life that will keep them feeling happy, joyous, and free for the rest of their lives. Discover for yourself how Hotel California by the Sea can help you overcome your substance abuse problems and build a sober life.

Levels of Care for Women at HCBTS

When you enter our treatment facility in Cincinnati, you will be amazed at our vast array of specialized treatment options for women. Hotel California by the Sea will act as your partner and guide through the process of getting sober. You’re in the right place and have just given yourself the best possible chance to remain clean and sober and to conquer your substance use disorder. Let your recovery begin.

But where do you begin? Well, that will not be a one-size-fits-all answer. We have many different levels of care explicitly created with women in mind.


Many women who come to us to create and implement a substance abuse treatment plan begin by entering our detoxification and withdrawal management program. This first phase treatment allows you to start your recovery by dealing with the difficulties associated with initial abstinence. With your clinical team working together with you, your transition to a clean and sober life will have a strong start.

Residential Treatment

Hotel California also offers its female clients various choices in how their treatment will then take place. One option is our residential program. If you enter this program, it means that you will stay at our treatment center around the clock. This will allow you to work on you. 

Leave your world behind for a while as you regroup and figure out the next steps you need to take. Once you enter our residential treatment center’s doors, you are not alone.

Partial Hospitalization Program

Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is the most intensive form of outpatient treatment. In PHP, clients can live at home, in sober living, or in one of our transitional homes while working and attending therapy. Overall, this level of care ensures a better outcome for many women in recovery.

Intensive Outpatient Program

The next step down in programs is our intensive outpatient therapy. This level of care is offered to women in a setting, much like our residential program. The difference is that you won’t stay overnight. You will participate in the same therapy sessions and support groups and still receive the same treatment services. However, you will most likely come every day for a few intense hours so that you can continue to work your programs and treatments to become clean and sober.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and Outpatient Program (OP)

When you and your recovery team decide the time is right, you may choose to partake in our intensive outpatient program (IOP) or outpatient program (OP).

Offered night or day and designed with flexibility in mind, Hotel California by the Sea’s outpatient program in Cincinnati can supply you with many options. Hotel California’s outpatient treatment programs offer women more freedom and flexibility while also continuing their therapies, such as group therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, EMDR, and more.

At Hotel California by the Sea, our Cincinnati Ohio drug and alcohol abuse treatment center extends aftercare programs to our female clients, as well. When you join our HCBTS, Cincinnati community, we are here for the long term. When you leave our facility to move on with your life, we will remain ready to assist all women in continuing to stay clean and sober through programs like our Alumni program.

Treating Trauma in Women

The National Coalition Against Violence reports “More than 1 in 3 women have experienced physical violence at the hands of an intimate partner, including a range of behaviors from slapping, pushing, or shoving to severe acts such as being beaten, burned, raped, or choked.” 

HCBTS, Cincinnati knows that one consequence of these terrible experiences may increase someone’s risk of developing a substance use disorder.

Trauma lasts until you address it and begin your journey of healing. To move past your addiction, you have to also break the hold that past traumatic events may still have on you while simultaneously working on your substance abuse issues. 

Hotel California by the Sea in Cincinnati specializes in gender-responsive trauma treatment for women who have been victims of both substance use and trauma abuse. We offer therapies such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), cognitive behavioral therapy, and more.

Differences Between Treating Men and Women

Hotel California by the Sea recognizes the differences between the successful treatment of men and women. Male and female situations and problems are not always alike. Therefore, recovery plans for these populations should not look the same.

There are similarities between men and women when it comes to substance abuse disorders. But there are so many differences that must be recognized, too, to create a successful and evidence-based treatment plan. 

Addiction: Women vs. Men

  • Women typically enter treatment with more social, psychological, and medical issues.
  • Women and men are often socially conditioned to respond differently to their emotions.
  • Women are more likely to self-medicate with substances.
  • Women’s substance use disorders typically progress quicker, making treatment interventions even more vital.

Drug lists many differences between men and women. For instance, fewer women enter substance abuse treatment than men, but women “enter substance use disorder treatment with more severe medical, behavioral, psychological, and social problems.” Women also progress faster than men from those first few overindulgences to an unshakeable drug or alcohol substance addiction. 

Women have also been shown to use substances more often than men as a way to self-medicate. This self-medication may stem from either a co-occurring disorder or trauma, sexual abuse, or a past violent incident.

Other things also create a vast difference between men and women and their substance use disorders, such as the different ways in which males and females are socially conditioned. Last, men don’t have to deal with the possibility of being pregnant while suffering from a substance use disorder. This additional concern makes seeking treatment seem even more challenging for women.

At HCBTS, we are ready to support you with not only your plan to remain clean and sober but also with anything else currently happening in your life.
