Addiction is a difficult problem to face no matter who you are. Addiction pays no mind to gender, ethnicity, race, age or education. Still, all of these factors play a large role in addiction and addiction treatment. Men’s addiction treatment can help men seeking a new start. If you are struggling with drug or alcohol substance use disorders, then there is hope for you.
Why Men’s Addiction Treatment?
Men are more likely than women to develop a substance use problem. In fact, nearly twice as many men attend substance abuse treatment programs as women. Men are more likely to abuse and use drugs to celebrate or enhance positive emotions. Drug and alcohol use is more socially acceptable among men, especially in specific environments like:
- College parties
- Networking events
- Sports events
- Weddings and bachelor parties
However, there is a tendency for men to find it more difficult to express their thoughts, feelings, and emotions in therapeutic environments. Society tends to pressure men to be strong and not show their feelings.
This can hinder men from getting the substance abuse treatment they need. Men need to be able to get all their feelings out. That’s why creating safe spaces for healing is essential to the P.A.T.H. program.
What Can You Expect?
While the P.A.T.H. programs are not designed to be gender-specific, they are built to be inclusive and supportive to a diverse population. During our diagnostic needs assessment, we will go through some of these socio-environmental elements that play a role in your substance use or mental health disorder. This will help us create a treatment plan that is unique and comfortable for you.
