Addiction is an individual, personal disease that manifests differently for each person. We offer gender-specific treatment because our clients asked for it directly. Process groups consisting of men only offer a safe space for people to talk openly about their issues. While some aspects of our drug treatment program involve both men and women, we understand the benefits of offering men-only group therapy. According to a national survey on drug use and health, men battle substance abuse and dependency at rates almost double those of women (10.8 percent versus 5.8 percent). Call Greater Boston Addiction Centers at 877.920.6583 if you need a rehab program because you are struggling with any form of substance use disorder, including:
- Methamphetamine addiction
- Opioid addiction (fentanyl, heroin, oxycodone)
- Crack addiction
- Cocaine addiction
- Alcohol addiction
- Hallucinogen addiction
Finding a Men’s Rehab Center in Needham, MA
Men have been shown to abuse drugs and alcohol more often than women do. One problem that particularly affects men is binge drinking. Men are more likely to binge drink (drink five or more alcoholic drinks in two hours), be dependent on alcohol in their lifetime, have alcohol-related health problems, and die due to alcohol-related causes. Men also may be more likely to abuse drugs or alcohol during a happy time to increase these feelings. Men also use drugs and alcohol to cope with social or behavioral differences. At Greater Boston Addiction Centers, we strive to provide optimal treatment methods to address all forms of drug abuse.
Both men and women abuse substances in an attempt to cope with anxiety, depression, mental illness, and trauma. Men are often more likely to experience antisocial behavior during addiction. And the presence of a co-occurring mental disorder may indicate the need for a more specialized treatment model. If you are looking for a men’s rehab program in Massachusetts, we are proud to offer Greater Boston Addiction Centers’ innovative approach to treating substance use disorder. We offer a professional, community-centered, and therapeutic environment treating substance use disorder problems and co-occurring psychiatric issues.
What Is Inpatient Drug Treatment?
Inpatient drug and alcohol rehab programs provide 24/7 supervision and care for the duration of the program. Hospital-based inpatient facilities offer around-the-clock medical care from healthcare professionals. Inpatient programs often impose strict restrictions that we find unnecessary. Attending inpatient treatment is not an option for most people because of work, family, and other obligations. Many Boston non-hospital-based residential programs also facilitate access to medical services when needed.
Boston Outpatient Men’s Rehab
An intensive outpatient program like the program we offer at Greater Boston Addiction Centers can prove to be a suitable alternative to residential drug rehab. Financial, employment, and family commitments prevent some people from seeking treatment. Some individuals may have already spent time in an inpatient facility or partial hospitalization program and now need a program designed to help them re-enter their lives after completing rehab. If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction, perhaps our IOP in Boston is the right choice.
Binge Drinking is More Common For Men
Binge drinking is associated with a vast number of health problems, including (but not limited to) the following:
- Accidents (car wrecks, burns, falls, and alcohol poisoning
- Violence (sexual assault, suicide, intimate partner violence, and homicide)
