Gender-Specific Addiction Treatment
From teens to older adults, we’ve found that people in addiction treatment are more comfortable, and more successful in recovery, when they rehabilitate with peers of the same sex. So, we’ve created specific care environments for males and females of each age group.
This separation of genders allows you the freedom to be yourself, without the distraction, sexual tension, fear, or any of the other complications that coed rehabilitation can cause. Sometimes, often without realizing it, men and women will put on an act for the other sex, taking on a role that’s not really who they are. But, when healing from a drug or alcohol problem, it’s very important be yourself in order to get to the root causes of addiction. Gender separation removes pretenses and masks, allowing people to be themselves and heal effectively.
Separating into groups by gender also makes it easier to talk about gender-specific issues and experiences. Not to mention, it allows us to focus education and therapy on relevant issues.
