Men’s Program FAQ’s

Men’s Program FAQ

Addiction can be partially or fully rooted in gender specific dysfunction related to feelings of shame, isolation, or low self esteem. So gender specific programming usually resonates better with the clientele and is therefore more effective at treating the underlying reasons for addiction. 

According to research men are more likely than women to develop a substance use disorder. This may be due to several factors including the pressure to appear tough and  to use substances as a way of coping.  According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism men are about twice as likely to binge drink than women.  

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reports that men are more likely than women to use most illicit drugs including cocaine and heroin and are more likely to abuse marijuana.  This may be because men in social settings more commonly use these substances. NIDA also reports that for “most age groups men have higher rates of use and dependence of illicit drugs and alcohol than do women.” But men are less likely than women to seek treatment which is likely due to the stigma surrounding addiction and the societal belief that admitting there is a problem is a sign of weakness.

Some of the amenities at the men’s facility are client driven such as the ping pong table and the group activities are driven by the requests of the clients.  The residence is also styled more towards a man’s rustic style.  We also provide private gym workouts 3 days a week with a personal trainer at a local gym.
