As we continue to learn more about gender differences in addiction and recovery, mens rehab programs for drug and alcohol addiction are becoming more and more popular.Early on, most treatment centers were ostensibly male-only because drug and alcohol abuse was thought to be a problem specific to men. This perception has been proven false, so clinics had to adapt to female addicts and some even opened facilities exclusively for women because they believed it would be more conducive to recovery to keep the sexes apart.
These programs were so successful that medical professionals opened a number of male-only clinics as well, and began to realize that men and women really do handle addiction differently. By focusing their treatment on a single sex, they were able to concentrate on the typical issues they faced and ignore things that didn’t apply. Plus, without the opposite sex there, many men found it easier to discuss their issues openly and focus on their recovery.But where are mens rehab programs for drug and alcohol addiction located? How do you find them and learn if there’s one out there that’s right for you?Read more: Men’s Addiction Treatment Center
Talk to other men. If you know another man who has been through drug treatment, it can be helpful to speak with him about his experience and see if he recommends any mens rehab programs. Even if he hasn’t, it’s likely that he will offer advice or be able to point you in the right direction.
Ask at the hospital. It may seem odd to just pop into your local hospital and start asking about rehab, but most hospitals have some kind of emergency program where you can get your health concerns addressed. Moreover, the people involved tend to know quite a bit about local rehab programs in the area. They may be able to give you a list of places that fit your needs or even put you in contact with a few treatment centers they have referred patients to previously with positive results.
Seek out Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). Does the hospital seem too public for you? One option is to attend an AA meeting and talk to the person running it in private. Even the other addicts might be able to help if you’re willing to share your question with them. And because it’s an anonymous group founded on confidentiality as a value, you don’t have to worry about anyone else knowing.
