At Midwest Recovery, we understand that substance abuse treatment cannot be one-size-fits-all. Every individual in our care has a different story, and we tailor our treatment plans to their unique needs. That’s why we offer both a men’s and women’s rehab program in our addiction treatment center. It is known that substance abuse affects men and women differently. Men are more likely than women to develop a substance use disorder. And many of them will never seek treatment although professional help could help them overcome addiction.
Men are often encouraged to suppress their emotions, even from a young age. Society presents ideal men as being stoic and capable of handling their problems themselves. However, the reality of addiction is that it’s nearly impossible to overcome alone. Substance abuse alters brain chemistry and makes your body dependent on drugs or alcohol to function. Without the help of an addiction treatment center and medical detox, many individuals will relapse and fall back into the cycle of addiction. Yet in a men’s rehab center, you’ll meet others with similar struggles. Real change happens when you start to understand the root causes of addiction, and in a gender-specific setting, you can begin to heal.
In our men’s rehab program, every individual in our care receives a personalized treatment plan. Our goal is to give you the tools you need to achieve lasting sobriety. You can begin to rebuild your life at Midwest Recovery. Learn more about our men’s rehab center and contact us today.
The Importance of a Men’s Rehab Center
Men and women face different struggles with substance abuse. And for many men, the pressure society puts on them to avoid seeming weak or fragile can hinder their success in overcoming addiction. When women are present in a treatment setting, men might become distracted. However, in a men-only program, they’ll be able to open up without feeling self-conscious. It can also take men longer to open up about their struggles. In a group with their peers, they can take their time.
Men might also struggle with anger issues or types of past trauma that women do not deal with to the same extent. At Midwest Recovery, our therapists understand these experiences and can also assist you in understanding how they can influence addiction.
