At Amatus Recovery Centers, we know that every individual in our care has a different relationship to drugs and alcohol. This is why we pride ourselves on tailoring each treatment program to a patient’s individual needs. One of the factors that affect recovery is, not surprisingly, gender. This is why we offer a men’s rehab center at most of our facilities. Researchers have demonstrated that drug and alcohol abuse affects men and women in different ways. For instance, men are more likely than women to develop a substance use disorder. Women who are addicted, on the other hand, are less likely to seek professional help than men are. If you are a man struggling with substance abuse issues, it is worth looking into men’s rehab. Amatus Recovery Centers is an excellent place to start.
Even in today’s society, men are often taught from a young age to avoid engaging with their emotions. Ideal men, so the story goes, are dispassionate and able to handle their problems on their own. But the reality is that addiction is very nearly impossible to overcome alone. Drug and alcohol abuse changes the brain’s chemistry and makes your body dependent. Willpower has very little to do with it. This is why without the help of addiction specialists, many men who try to quit end up falling back into the cycle of addiction.
In a men’s rehab center, you will get the support you need from day one. Real change can only begin when you start to understand the causes of your addiction and meet others who have undergone similar struggles and have similar recovery goals. In a gender-specific setting like the one you will find in our men’s rehab centers, you can get everything you need for long-term sobriety.
Why a Men’s Rehab Center?
When it comes to substance abuse, men and women face different struggles. For many men, the pressure society puts on them to avoid seeming weak or feminine is often a serious obstacle to overcoming addiction. For instance, it usually takes men longer to open up about the problems they face. That issue often becomes significantly worse when there are women present. This is one of the reasons why a men’s rehab center can be so effective.
Men also tend to struggle with anger issues and specific types of trauma that women do not. In a men’s rehab program at Amatus Recovery Centers, our addiction treatment staff specialize in treating precisely these issues and helping men on their journey to recovery.
