When you’ve decided to find help at a substance abuse treatment center, you might start looking at different treatment programs. Deciding which program will be the right fit for you can be challenging. Although we do not offer gender-specific treatment at Mission Recovery, we do offer programs specifically designed with men and women veterans and first responders in mind to help them overcome substance abuse issues or mental health issues that they may have developed in their difficult careers.
There are differences between men and women when it comes to substance abuse. Men are more likely to develop an addiction to alcohol and to use illegal drugs. And addiction also presents differently in men than in women.
Society places different expectations on men than women. Men are more likely to have difficulty controlling their anger or expressing their emotions. And for veterans, past trauma can lead to substance abuse. Many veterans and first responders develop PTSD after serving, which can lead to anxiety, paranoia, and depression. Some veterans and first responders then turn to drugs and alcohol to manage these symptoms. While some prescribed medications can manage the anxiety and flashbacks associated with PTSD, they can also be addictive. The path into addiction looks different for every individual, but no matter their journey, substance abuse is hard to overcome. Our addiction treatment center programs in Fort Worth, TX at Mission Recovery can help both men and women with the issues they face.
Treatment For Men At A Rehab Center
Both biological and sociological differences affect how substance abuse affects men and women. Men have higher rates of alcohol abuse than women and are also more likely to experience severe withdrawal symptoms. This can make detoxing alone difficult and even dangerous. A rehab center with men’s issues in mind can provide support and medical attention during the detox period. Asking for help can be a challenge, yet at a men’s rehab center, there is no judgment.
As men work towards recovery, a support group can be helpful. For instance, when discussing deep personal issues and traumatic experiences, some men have an easier time opening up in a single-gender group. Occasionally, men turn to romantic relationships to cope with uncomfortable situations. However, in a men’s rehab center, those distractions are taken away. This allows the clients clarity while working through addiction and underlying issues.
