Why is Rehab for Men Important?

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, Men are more likely than women to use almost all types of illicit drugs, and illicit drug use is more likely to result in emergency department visits or overdose deaths for men than for women. However, women are more likely to seek substance abuse treatment than men.

Young men and women experience and respond to substance use, trauma, and mental health issues differently, so they must be treated differently. Although we must search for a solution to this problem, we cannot ignore the fact that young men recovering from substance use disorder and/or co-occurring disorders are struggling with anger, low self-esteem, failure to launch, stress management, and other issues. In addition, young males are encountering new difficulties every day, and they are more prone to rely on drugs and alcohol to cope. As a result, young males must attend substance use treatment centers that are able to address their needs.

Our addiction treatment program in North Carolina is constructed to satisfy the wants of our young male patients. During and after your stay at Oasis Recovery, our drug addiction treatment program helps you or a loved one build self-esteem and become more self-sufficient. Clients will also develop healthy skills such as:

  • Identify both the emotional and physical triggers that lead to relapse
  • Manage their anger
  • Embrace a positive perspective
  • Manage co-occurring disorders like anxiety or depression
  • Cope with the repercussions of trauma.

Why Are Men More Likely to Develop Addiction?

A person’s dependency on drugs or alcohol is the result of a complex mix of genetic risk factors and environmental triggers. Despite this fact, gender-based norms for ‘masculine’ behavior might increase a man’s vulnerability to substance abuse. The following are potential reasons why men may be more vulnerable to developing a substance use disorder.

1.Men are less likely to see addiction as a problem

When it comes to substance use, men tend to see it as a sign of masculine behavior or a rite of passage, rather than something that is harmful or inappropriate. Women, on the other hand, tend to view substance use as something that is incompatible with caregiving and family responsibilities. This can also make them vulnerable to sexual assault or make them look bad in the eyes of others.

2. Men are more vulnerable to peer pressure

“Toxic masculinity” is a term used to describe the negative overall effect of socially constructed ideas about manhood on a man’s wellbeing. It’s the belief that feminine behaviors are inherently weak and undesirable that leads men to consume addictive substances more often than they would on their own. This is due to peer pressure. It may lead to an addiction in anyone with genetic vulnerability or other risk factors for substance abuse as a result of peer pressure. Women who have substance use issues, on the other hand, usually report that substance abuse began as a means to self-medicate negative mental health symptoms. However, in some cases, intimate partners contribute to substance abuse in women.

3. Many men externalize emotions

When processed in a healthy manner, fear, anger, disappointment, and frustration are all normal parts of human life. Many individuals, however, find it challenging to process these feelings in a healthy manner. Studies have found that men externalize negative emotions more frequently than women do. Substance abuse disorders are associated with impulsive and aggressive actions as a result. These studies found that this behavior is linked to higher levels of substance abuse. Reckless driving, physical altercations, and other self-destructive behaviors may ensue as a result of externalizing negative emotions.

4. Men have weaker social ties

A person’s mental health can be heavily influenced by the connections they have with other people. When you tell your close friends about your concerns, they offer a balanced perspective on the problems that are troubling you. If you’re struggling, they will come to your aid and try to help. They protect against loneliness and isolation. They offer you someone to speak to if you have a bad day.

5. Men are less likely to ask for help

When substance abuse problems are first noticed, they may be difficult to detect. Substance abuse is a progressive illness, so it is often hard to identify at first. Men who are conditioned to solve problems without asking for help are more likely to remain in denial about their substance use until a crisis forces them to seek treatment. Since substance use disorders are particularly common in the veteran population, it is especially important to ask for help with personal issues. As a result, women are frequently in a better position to seek assistance when problems arise.

Men’s Group Therapy

It can be difficult for some men to be honest, open, and candid in a mixed-gender group, especially if they struggle with other issues that are different from women. Due to social conventions, it is often hard for men to be honest, open, and vulnerable in group therapy. There is less fear of judgement or discomfort in a men-only setting. Many men find it easier to be open and honest when surrounded by men with similar life experiences.

Group therapy often includes physical activity, group activities, and other trust-building experiences as well as traditional group sharing and support. People may be reluctant to admit their inability to control certain aspects of their lives or else they may be thought of as victims of their conditions. When people are conditioned to behave in certain ways according to gender, it can make it difficult for them to be honest, open, and candid.

Men who take part in their treatment in a gender-specific rehab setting may feel less inhibited, allowing them to participate in their treatment without fear of judgment or shame. Here, the staff are sensitive to the fact that gender often plays a major role in addiction. Other men in rehab support the decision-making process, promoting health and recovery.
