substance abuse rehab

Gender-specific rehab programs help by offering a more individualized approach to treatment.

Are you or your loved one considering entering treatment in a rehab center? There are so many questions you must have and so many things to be considered when thinking about your options and what type of treatment facility would be best for you or your loved one. Rest assured there are many options for you to weigh out and it is important for you to explore all of them before making your decision. One of the options available today is gender specific rehab. Yes, gender specific, catering to the specific needs of either a man or a woman. I am sure you have many questions as to why gender specific rehab would be beneficial to you or your loved one.

For some people the first and a major benefit would be the success rate of gender specific rehab is much higher due to the fact they recognize the needs, risks and rates of relapse of either a man or woman. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism woman carry a burden of shame that they need any type of treatment for substance abuse. This can be a huge roadblock when it comes to a woman reaching out for assistance with her treatment.

Another benefit to this type of rehab is the compounding of the substance abuse and mental illness that may present in these individuals. Some men may completely withdraw or internalize their behavior and feelings when dealing with the substance abuse, as they don’t want to be portrayed as a weak person even though that is not the case.

A third benefit, with some woman there may be some early signs of addiction and some may even become very severe. Being in a gender specific rehab allows the women to deal with this better and with those who may be faced with the same issue.

A fourth benefit, while it may benefit the men, as they would have a tendency to internalize and keep to themselves. They may feel more detached and do their best to hide their addictive behavior from the outside world. This setting for rehab will allow them to express their feelings easier with their peers.

A fifth and important benefit for those who receive the gender specific treatment you should realize that the treatment standards are the same. You will receive excellent care however it will be based on your needs. You will be with those who have similar issues and concerns and the peer support will be very effective. As we know, it is much easier to talk to those who can relate to feelings of guilt, shame or otherwise when it comes to how it has affected your family, occupation and friends. Although we do understand that no matter what, almost all treatment plans will always be a personalized approach so that the successful path to recovery will be the greatest.
