Violence against women is a social and public health issue in Mexico. The aim of this article is to explore violence among an understudied group of women, who attended Mutual-Aid Residential Centers for Addiction Treatment and experienced stigma both as women and addicts. These centers are particular kind of addiction treatment services that stem from step philosophy, but that have been found to manipulate said philosophy and exercise extreme forms of psychological and physical violence. Thirteen semi-structured interviews were carried in and out with women who resided in at least one of these centers to understand their experiences of violence prior and during their rehabilitation process. The interview guide covered questions regarding substance use initiations, family violence and dynamics, and rehabilitation experiences. Qualitative data was analyzed using interpretative-phenomenological analysis. Two categories emerged: violence and substance use and abuse, and violence against women in recovery.
