Substance Abuse and Addiction Rehab for Men
Recovering from drug abuse or addiction is a challenging experience that can be further complicated by the presence of the opposite sex. Some men can find it difficult to undergo treatment while in the presence of women. Because of that, they may feel that it is necessary to get help at a men’s addiction treatment center. But a strictly men-only facility isn’t your only solution. At True Recovery, we’ve created a men’s rehab program that caters to men’s unique needs. We understand that some may feel more comfortable around a group of their peers where they can speak with and befriend others whose journey with substance abuse is similar to their own.
The Benefits of A Men’s Addiction Rehab Program
There are a number of reasons why one might benefit from seeking treatment at a men’s addiction treatment center. In an all-male environment, one may feel as if they can speak more openly and honestly, particularly on topics that may be too embarrassing for them to discuss in the presence of women. When female and male clients attend classes together, some men may put on a facade and speak and behave in ways that are less than honest. The inability to speak honestly during group addiction counseling can impact the quality of their rehab experience. As a result, this alone can make a rehab program for men more appealing for some.
Some men who attend mixed-gender rehabilitation may also find that they are easily distracted by the presence of the opposite sex. Sexual attraction and romantic entanglements can complicate one’s recovery in ways that prove detrimental to further success. During the early stages of recovery, a person with an addictive personality may use sex or relationships in the place of drugs or alcohol. While this may eliminate the desire for drugs or alcohol for a time, it is not a reliable way to curb one’s cravings for it. Additionally, a relationship that ends in a breakup during the recovery process can cause one to regress or hinder one’s ability to achieve their recovery goals. By taking part in a program that provides drug rehab for men only, one isn’t faced with this particular problem.
True Recovery’s Individualized Addiction Recovery Treatment
Participants in our men’s rehab program can take part in holistic therapeutic practices such as yoga and guided meditation. The program also includes other therapies, including dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Group sizes for treatments are kept relatively small to ensure that all attending get more one-on-one care than larger class sizes would allow. In addition to group therapies, people who choose our drug rehab for men can also expect the same level of individualized therapy that True Recovery is known for. Whether you are a man who’s undergoing rehab for the first time or you’ve slipped in your recovery, our highly trained staff are here to help you find your passion in life and guide you in developing the skills needed to achieve your goals.
