The benefits of men-only rehab

Men often face unique challenges when it comes to addiction treatment that may not be an issue for women. Men only clinics are able to better focus on these issues and thus provide optimal treatment for men’s needs.

Studies have shown that men are more likely to remain in a men-only rehab longer than mix-sex alternatives. Put simply, the longer you remain in rehab, the better your chance of remaining in recovery for the rest of your life. For this reason, men-only rehab offers lower relapse rates compared to mixed-sex rehab. If it’s lifelong abstinence you require, then we urge you to seriously consider men-only rehab.

When women are present, some men are known to use humour as a deflection tactic to draw attention away from the emotional issues that may be causing them to abuse alcohol and other substances. Men are less likely to display their vulnerability when women attend group therapy sessions. This is disadvantageous because expressing vulnerability is part of the healing process.

When men are only in the presence of other men, they are more likely to express a broader range of emotions. Men are also more likely to form stronger bonds with each other, rather than competing with one another, often subconsciously as a means of impressing women.

It’s unquestionable that men will act more honest and open when undertaking men-only rehab. This is particularly the case when undertaking group therapy sessions, where men are known to say things they would probably never say in the presence of women. Another advantage of men-only rehab is that the temptation to engage in romantic relationships is eliminated.

Most of the disadvantages of mixed-sex rehab are mostly attributable to how men react when in women’s company. For instances, men are more likely to deny they have a problem when women are present. Admitting to their problems may make men feel less masculine.

When women are taken out of the equation, men are much more likely to admit that they cannot cope with their addiction. For addiction treatment to progress, it’s essential for men to remove their macho image and admit up to their weaknesses. This process is much more rapid when women are not present.
