Addiction specialists agree, separating people in rehab by gender works. Gender-specific treatment for addiction is not only effective in the short term but in the long-term as well in that it is less likely to result in relapse later. There are many reasons that treatment programs like the one at our men’s rehab center work so well. One of the primary reasons is that men’s rehab encourages more — and more effective — peer support. As men, we are taught from childhood not to show vulnerability, and to hide our emotions. And in recovery situations, we have found at Blueprint Recovery that men who feel comfortable talking openly to other men have more success. This is in part because we construct an environment in a men’s rehab center in which they can admit their helplessness and vulnerability when it comes to their addiction. These kinds of discussions simply don’t happen when women are around.
Top-quality addiction treatment like the kind offered in our men’s rehab program in NH looks different for everyone. And the fact is, men’s and women’s relationships to drugs and alcohol are different. At Blueprint Recovery, we believe that if treatment is going to work, it must reflect this fact.
Why Choose a Men’s Rehab Center?
As a man, you know that your needs are different from women’s needs. And this is at least in part because of the way that society views men. Men are taught to avoid being perceived as weak. And this is especially true in the presence of women. A gender-specific men’s rehab center aims to give men a space to open up in precisely this way.
Another result of the way that men are raised in our society is that it sometimes takes us more time to open up and to make ourselves vulnerable. Men are, unfortunately, not usually encouraged to express their desires, needs, and emotions in the way that women are. In men’s rehab, we address these needs directly.
Getting treatment in a gender-separated environment isn’t for everyone. But our men’s rehab program in NH is designed to give you the support you need to beat your addiction once and for all.
The Benefits of a Men’s Rehab Center
In our men’s rehab program in NH, we know that recovery is a complex process. And when rehabilitation is mismanaged or attempted without the help of medical professionals, the results can be disastrous. If you are struggling with dependency issues, you must seek out help. Self-rehab is unlikely to lead to lasting recovery, and can even be dangerous. A quality men’s rehab center also brings its own set of benefits. Among these are:
- Less sexual tension. Sexual tension is often a distraction in rehab. With no women around, men can focus on their recovery.
- Men-only group therapy. All-male therapy groups encourage more open communication and support.
- Specialized treatment. Many physical and emotional aspects of addiction are specific to men. We can more effectively concentrate on these at a men’s rehab center.
- Increased comfort. With no women present, men often feel that they can speak more freely and demonstrate their vulnerability.
- A more extensive, more effective support network. In men’s rehab, patients have access to a deeper network of support. This is a crucial component of a successful recovery and helps avoid relapse.
The above are only a few of the benefits of men’s rehab at Blueprint Recovery Center. Not every treatment modality works for every person. But if you are a man struggling with addiction, our program might be right for you.
