Substance abuse is a prevalent problem around the country. In 2018, over 8.1 million people had an illicit drug use disorder, and 1.8 million struggled with alcohol use disorders. If a man in your life struggles with alcohol or drug addiction, the time to get treatment at a men’s rehab center is now.
Why Choose a Men’s Rehab Center?
When it comes to substance abuse, trauma, and mental health, we know that young men and women are very different, and we must treat it as such. That is why it is essential to find a dedicated men’s drug rehab center.
Anger. Low self-esteem. Failure to launch. Stress management. These are just a few of the many issues that significantly impact young males recovering from substance use disorder and/or co-occurring disorders. Young men are also coming up against new challenges each day, and they are more likely to turn to drugs and alcohol to cope.
When you come to a men’s rehab center, you can get the treatment you need without having to worry about appearing strong or reliable for the people around you. At a men’s rehab center, all the people around you are going through the same problems that you are.
For this reason, we have developed a unique program for our young male clients – one that helps build self-esteem during and after your stay at Red Oak Recovery and that equips you or someone you love to:
- Achieve sobriety and stay in recovery
- Become more self-sufficient
- Identify emotional and physical triggers that precede relapse
- Cope with stress in a healthy manner
- Manage anger better
- Embrace a positive outlook
- Deal with co-occurring disorders, including anxiety and depression
- Move past the impact of trauma
Men’s Drug Rehab Program at Red Oak Recovery
Our highly trained staff works with our male clients to create a personalized addiction treatment plan. Our men’s rehab program center combines conventional and holistic treatment modalities to address mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional needs and to increase the likelihood of long-term recovery.
In addition to therapy, our young men will learn about what triggers and motivates them to abuse substances in the first place, how to move through trauma, and manage health mental health. We’ll work together to develop new healthy coping strategies and positive skills for recovery and relapse prevention.
Treatment Options at Red Oak
When you struggle with addiction, you need a combination of holistic and evidence-based treatments. Addiction affects every part of a person-mind, body, and soul. All of these are damaged during the addiction’s course. Holistic therapies are treatments that address each part of the person. These treatments include:
- Yoga therapy
- Meditation therapy
- Wilderness therapy
- Hiking therapy
However, these treatments do not work on their own. It would be best if you also had evidence-based treatments for a well-rounded recovery.
Evidence-based therapies are methods that experts in addiction treatment have thoroughly researched to ensure that they can effectively treat addiction. With these treatments, our staff can help you get to the root cause of your addiction. Our evidence-based addiction treatment programs for young men at Red Oak Recovery include:
- Family therapy
- 12 step addiction recovery
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy
- Dialectical behavior therapy
Even if you only have two or three symptoms, you shouldn’t assume that you don’t need treatment at a men’s alcohol rehab. After all, a mild addiction is far easier to treat than a severe addiction.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment
For many people, addiction and mental illness are inextricably linked. Sometimes, addiction starts because the person is trying to cope with symptoms of a mental illness. For instance, a person with depression may begin drinking because they think that the only way they can manage their symptoms is with alcohol. However, the more they use alcohol as a coping mechanism, the more alcohol they need to get the same effect. Before they know what is happening, they’ve got a full-blown addiction.
Other times, addiction causes a mental illness. Substances like cocaine and methamphetamine can cause anxiety, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder.
Whichever is the case for you, if you struggle with both a mental disorder and substance abuse disorder, you need dual diagnosis treatment. Dual diagnosis treatment addresses both the mental health problem and the substance abuse disorder at the same time.
This type of treatment is imperative for long term recovery. If you don’t receive simultaneous treatment, the untreated disorder may cause the treated one to relapse. For example, if a person struggled with depression and addiction and only got treatment for the addiction, their depression symptoms would come back at full force. Without coping mechanisms to manage those symptoms, they would go back to the alcohol.
At Red Oak Recovery, we treat a wide range of mental health disorders, including:
- Bipolar disorder
- Eating disorders
Your Recovery Journey at Our Men’s Drug Rehab Center
Addiction can cause manipulative and deceitful behavior, rigid thinking, and irrational belief systems that lead to dysfunctional or otherwise unhealthy behavior.
One of our goals at Red Oak Recovery is to deepen our male clients’ understanding of themselves and others through therapeutic assignments and 12-step work. Along these lines, we help clients further explore six core values:
Our therapeutic curriculum consists of four “journeys” that our clients will embark on, including:
The Journey of Awareness
The Journey of Connection
The Journey of Support
The Journey of Perseverance
We believe that recovery necessitates something to replace the hours spent using and seeking drugs and/or alcohol. For this reason, our therapeutic journeys also teach clients how to have fun in sobriety.
