The Importance of Gender-Specific Men’s Addiction Treatment
Going through treatment for addiction, mental illness, or trauma is hard. Examining each and every part of ourselves is hard. Searching fearlessly for strength, courage, and recovery is hard.
Fortunately for those in need of men’s addiction help, there are strategies to help ease this burden. First among these is offering gender-specific men’s addiction treatment.
During the clinical day, single-gender groups and counseling allow men to get honest. They don’t have distractions. They’re able to share and receive feedback in a supportive setting. Simply put, gender-specific men’s drug addiction treatment offers men the chance to remove the mask of masculinity and heal.
In a Community Living environment, single-gender living allows men the freedom to concentrate on completing clinical assignments. It allows men the freedom to develop healthy, interdependent friendships and support each other. It allows men the freedom to focus solely on their recovery and building a foundation for long-term sobriety.
Single-gender community living also decreases the risk of entering into a romantic relationship with a female. These are known as “rehab romances” and present a significant barrier to effective men’s addiction treatment.
The Benefits of Single Gender Men’s Drug Addiction Treatment
Single-gender men’s addiction help offers our men the ability to engage issues distinctly their own. These can take the form of anger management, false masculinity, pride, relationship issues, mental illness, and many others.
While these struggles aren’t unique to men, the way they manifest in men’s lives is unique. A gender-specific clinical and community living environment offers the following benefits:
- Allows Group Therapies to Focus on Men’s Issues
- Affords the Opportunity for Honest Communication
- Allows Clients to Form Deep & Lasting Bonds
- Allows Clients to Support & Help Each Other
- Less Distraction –
Minimizes the Chance of “Rehab Romances”
