There is an increasing body of clinical evidence that shows that separating people in recovery by gender is effective. Gender-specific addiction treatment is not only successful in the short term, but it is also less likely to result in relapse later in recovery, according to researchers and medical professionals. There are many explanations why gender-specific care, such as our men’s and women’s detox centers, is so successful. A men’s rehab center, for example, promotes more positive peer reinforcement.
From a young age, men are told not to show weakness. Men who are given the ability to speak freely with other men in care — such as group therapy — are more likely to succeed. This is due in large part to the fact that they are given the opportunity to accept their helplessness and weakness in the face of their addiction. These discussions do not tend to take place in the presence of women.
Decades ago, addiction specialists dispelled the idea of an easy, one-size-fits-all treatment for addiction. Quality services, such as The Retreat of Atlanta’s men’s detox program, recognize that addiction and rehabilitation look different for everyone. And, since men and women use drugs and alcohol in various ways, their care should represent this if it is to be successful.
We understand that detoxification is a complicated and sometimes painful phase in our residential addiction recovery program in Georgia. When detox is done incorrectly or without medical care, the results may be catastrophic. This is why, if you are suffering from serious addiction, it is important that you do not attempt to detox on your own. Solo detox attempts are not only statistically unlikely to result in actual, long-term recovery, but they can also be risky. They have the potential to be lethal.
A men’s detox center has its own range of advantages in addition to the general advantages of medically controlled detox. There are some of them:
