What Happens In A Men’s Addiction Treatment Program?

Have you thought about the benefits of a men’s addiction treatment program, but were unsure what is included and how it works? It’s not uncommon to wonder if this type of care is best for you. What you’ll find at Rockland Recovery Treatment Center is that we offer a range of tools for you that allow you to relax and get the care you need without the frustrations you may expect.

What Is a Men’s Addiction Treatment Program?

When you choose a gender-specific addiction treatment program, you’ll work with our therapists in individual care programs as you would in any other setting. The difference is that you will spend most of your remaining time with other men. That means you will be spending time in group therapy sessions and various experiential therapies with other men going through the same struggles you’re facing.

Why Does This Matter?

When you take advantage of a men’s addiction treatment program, you may get care better suited to your needs. That’s because we provide the one-on-one support and guidance you need through programs that fit the unique needs of men. Men learn differently than women. Many have different views and respond to therapies in different ways from women.

In addition to this, by focusing on just activities with other men, we reduce the risk of stress and uncomfortableness because the other gender is present. By doing that, we aim to make you more comfortable and a bit more at ease. That’s critical to you because it may help encourage you to open up with us.

What Happens During Gender-Specific Addiction Treatment?

When you enroll in our men’s addiction treatment program, you’ll work through the same initial assessment process. We’ll talk to you about your addiction, answer all of your questions, and then provide you with recommendations for the right type of care for you. That may include:

  • Day partial hospitalization program
  • Day intensive outpatient program
  • Evening intensive outpatient program
  • Alcohol addiction treatment
  • Drug addiction treatment

Once we create a plan of care that addressed what type of care you need and how often you need to obtain it, you can settle in and get to know our team and our opportunities.

Your care may include therapies designed to address your needs. Here are some examples.

Individual Therapy

You’ll work with your individual therapist during these one-on-one sessions. This is a very good time to open up and discuss what’s behind your addiction or what makes it hard for you to stop using it. You’ll also find that this is the best time to learn about your triggers, underlying mental health needs, and the resources you need to start healing.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is often a component of a men’s addiction treatment program. You’ll learn closely about addiction and participate in a variety of different treatment options designed to support your healing. In these settings, you’ll work with other men. These are people who have gone through many of the struggles you have and who you can work with and support.

In gender-specific addiction treatment, your needs and unique goals are always a priority. By being in this type of setting, though, you’ll be surrounded by people who you feel at ease with and can open up to. That may help you achieve better results in recovery.
