Why We Offer Gender-Specific Treatment for Men
Gender-specific treatment is an effective tool in the recovery process. While anyone can fall victim to addiction, men experience addiction differently, both physically and mentally. An all-men’s addiction treatment center can be more effective for long-term recovery for some of the following reasons:
Men Are Often Expected to Be Tough and Strong
Many men feel that they need to be tough and strong due to expectations put on them by society. This can lead to the following:
- More difficulty admitting that they need help due to fear of losing their masculinity or appearing weak
- Difficulty opening up and being vulnerable during therapy sessions
- Higher rates of depression and anxiety due to feelings of suppression and isolation
By providing a safe, supportive environment for men seeking treatment, we are giving them the opportunity to become more in touch with their emotions. Our all-men’s treatment program allows men to let go of the pressures of society and focus on their healing journey.
Men Face Unique Challenges in Addiction
In addition, men tend to be more impulsive, more apt to take risks, and more competitive. These traits often lead them to experiment with drugs and alcohol, which can cause them to consume larger quantities to try and outdo the people around them. As a result, men typically consume more alcohol than women when they drink, and they are likely to drink more frequently.
The Health Risks of Substance Abuse
Studies show that men’s brains release more dopamine after drinking an alcoholic drink or doing drugs, suggesting that these substances produce more feelings of pleasure and gratification in men than women. Men in recovery are more likely to relapse than women.
