Men and women have different reactions to drugs, alcohol, and addiction due to inherent dissimilarities in their physiologies. This is one of the main reasons why Blueprints for Recovery has decided to be a male-only addiction treatment center. By intentionally directing our treatments and therapies towards how men react to addiction, we are better prepared for the road ahead and its many challenges.
The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Addiction notes these differences between men and women when it comes to drug and alcohol use:
There are also studies that indicate a majority of women who are struggling with drug addiction have experienced sexual abuse in the past, usually before the age of 16. On the other hand, men seem to begin heavy drug and alcohol use due to ongoing emotional detachments.
In recognition that men react differently to drug and alcohol use than women, it is time to consider the benefits of an all-male rehab center. The key advantage is that it allows our Prescott drug and alcohol rehabilitation specialists to direct treatments and therapies towards the specifics of typically-male physiology and psychology. The other benefit that most men who come to Blueprints for Recovery appreciate is that communicating with others in group therapy sessions feels easier and more natural.
In today’s society, it is not uncommon for men to feel intimidated, distracted, or uncomfortable around women they do not know. However, when surrounded by men they have not met before, men tend to have a much easier time opening up, sharing stories, and listening. Furthermore, as substance use disorder usually begins for a specific set of reasons in men, an all-male group can more readily connect to the tales of others about how it all began.
