The Benefits of Personalized Men’s Treatment and Gender-Specific CarePersonalizing our clients’ treatment is one of our highest priorities because no two people have the same relationship with addiction. For instance, two people may begin abusing the same drug for entirely different reasons or vice versa. Their experience with substance use disorder is undeniably shaped by their personal, external factors as well as internal ones. In that sense, addictions become personalized by being lived through. Despite the two having the same substance use disorder, a one-size-fits-all program will fail to accommodate their key differences. An effective treatment must identify what makes each client unique and how they have developed alongside their addiction. Gender-specific care is just one of many ways substance use disorder treatment can be personalized. Men and women tend to have different experiences with substance use disorder. Studies suggest this is due to a combination of biological and social factors, the former including how men and women differ in their proficiency in building a tolerance to certain substances, and the latter has to do with how addiction can stem from the social roles and expectations of men and women.
Why Choose a Men’s Program in New Hampshire?Gender-specific care has several benefits that put it above other treatment programs. At Clear Steps Recovery, we offer both women’s and men’s treatment programs for substance use disorder, each with the necessary resources and therapies. Enrolling in our men’s treatment program allows clients access to the following:
Comfort in FamiliarityPeople are more comfortable and confident in disclosing personal shortcomings and sources of stress to those who they perceive as more “alike.” The group therapy sessions in men’s treatment are arguably the most essential part because of how effectively they cut through the stigma of weakness.
Tailored TreatmentThe differences between men’s and women’s SUD treatment is another important aspect. Stress is cited as a significant factor in addiction, but the sources of stress for men and women are just short of exclusive. Men’s treatment typically centers around expectations from others and themselves and how opening up emotionally is frowned upon in certain circles.
Deeper Self-ExaminationOur men’s treatment program emphasizes introspection as a tool to better understand addiction. When clients better understand themselves, they are more equipped to overcome substance use disorder on their own accord.
Improved OutcomesGender-specific treatment programs can lead to better outcomes for clients and their families, including higher rates of completion, abstinence, and overall satisfaction with treatment.
