Benefits of a Drug Addiction Program for Men

Addiction is a silent epidemic across the United States. For many young men, fear of failure, societal expectations, and low self-esteem can contribute to drug and alcohol use. Unfortunately, men are less likely to seek help for addiction than women. Cultured to keep their feelings to themselves, many men believe they have to overcome addiction alone. Luckily, today there are programs across the country just for men. Drug addiction programs for men provide a safe, inclusive environment for men to overcome root causes of addiction and heal in the company of other men.

If you or a man in your life needs addiction treatment, contact Red Oak Recovery® today. Our North Carolina program helps young adult men overcome addiction and co-occurring disorders. Call us today at 866.457.7590 to learn more.

What Is A Men’s Drug Addiction Program?

Men’s drug addiction programs are treatment centers just for men. For many men, single-gender detox and rehabilitation offer a break from daily life stressors. Men’s addiction programs offer solidarity, making men feel less alone in their addiction. Many young men today lack strong relationships with other men. Men’s only programs help men express emotions and talk about their experiences with the support of other men. Men’s drug addiction programs may include:

  • Group therapy
  • Individual psychotherapy
  • Medically assisted detox
  • Wilderness therapy
  • Scheduled personal free time
  • Nutrition counseling and cooking lessons
  • Character-building activities
  • EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and trauma therapy
  • Family therapy

Men’s only addiction recovery can provide a safe place to explore their addiction triggers outside of cultural expectations. Men can identify the societal pressures that trigger their addiction. Through men’s programs, clients see their own experiences mirrored in the men around them. This can help them identify and overcome toxic masculinity and other behavior that leads to addiction. Men often make long-term friends and accountability partners in men’s only rehab programs.

Why Choose a Men’s Drug Addiction Program?

Every addiction treatment journey is unique. Some men may worry that a men’s only program could be competitive. However, men’s programs often provide men the opportunity to drop cultural expectations and live more authentically as themselves. A men’s only program may be right for you if:

  • You struggle to express your feelings and connect with other men.
  • You lack strong relationships with men.
  • You’ve had a difficult relationship with your father.
  • You’re interested in alternative modalities like wilderness therapy.
  • You thrive in safe, inclusive environments.
  • You want to support other men on their journey.
  • You’ve struggled with unhealed trauma.

In today’s world, it’s increasingly important for men to have spaces in which to heal together. A men’s drug addiction treatment center can take a man beyond sobriety and into solidarity with other men.
