People don’t become addicted to substances for the same reasons. Men and women, especially use substances differently and have different triggers. Therefore, getting gender-specific treatment for substance use can provide you with a more carefully tailored program to your needs as a man or woman. To determine whether gender-specific programs can help you to achieve lasting recovery, call Fort Behavioral Health today at 844.332.1807.
Specific Needs Addressed in a Women’s Treatment Center
Women don’t experience addiction to substances the same as men. While women don’t seek treatment as often as men for addiction, they can experience worse physical effects from drugs or alcohol use. Additionally, substance abuse tends to become more interfering with women’s lifestyles compared to men’s.
When going through rehab at a women’s rehab center, you may experience relapse prevention that focuses on why women are most likely to return to their addictions, which differ from men’s. Women will relapse if they have a relationship with a substance abuser. Plus, women tend to have more personal problems than men before they relapse.
By offering treatment with other women in a supportive environment, participants can feel more open in group discussions to talk about things they would feel embarrassed to say in front of men. Because relationships can play a role in relapse, women may feel more at ease talking about their prior romantic involvements with other women.
A women’s treatment center ensures that everyone present has a safe, secure place to talk about reasons behind their substance use or relapse freely.
How a Men’s Treatment Center Differs
Because gender-specific treatment also includes men, this group has its own separate program for recovery. A men’s treatment center can help men overcome their struggles with substance use to recover their lives.
By offering a male-only environment, men can engage the treatment team with the issues they feel most concerned about. For instance, some men may feel that treatment stigmatizes them as “less manly.” However, getting help for an addiction is difficult and takes more inner strength than continuing to let substance abuse rule your life.
With gender-specific treatment for men, you may feel a greater sense of comfort in the environment and can better work toward recovery.
Addiction Treatment Can Help Anyone
Addiction treatment has several facets that heal the mind, spirit, and body. For instance, at Fort Behavioral Health, we have several types of therapy and treatment, such as:
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy program
- Dialectical behavior therapy program
- Group therapy
- Individual therapy
- Family therapy
The above only represent a small number of the many ways our services help the body and mind recover. For instance, we recognize that some people have trauma at the core of their addictions. Therefore, we provide trauma therapy to help them to process their experiences.
Additionally, we treat various addictions, such as alcohol, heroin, opioids, and more. By providing all the care you need from detox to discharge, you can follow a full recovery course with us.
Our medically supervised detox also includes counseling during the process. We see how difficult detoxification is mentally for our patients. Consequently, we want them to know that they have the psychological and emotional support they need as their bodies clear out the substances.
Once you complete detox and reach the recovery program, you may elect to have gender-specific treatment for your addiction.
