Societal pressures can put a lot of unnecessary stress on men. Thankfully, there is more of a focus on the importance of mental health in our society today. The state of one’s mental health can be directly connected to substance abuse or past traumas. A co-occuring mental health and substance use disorder can be best managed at a treatment facility that offers dual diagnosis treatment as part of a men’s rehab program. The key is in tailoring your treatment program to your individual needs in a gender-specific format. Eliminating the distraction of the opposite sex can make the treatment experience run much more smoothly for many men.
Don’t wait to get the treatment you need. Make it a priority to contact our treatment team today and learn more about men’s rehab addiction treatment programs in California.
What Is a Men’s Rehab Program?
A men’s rehab program is designed to treat men in a gender-specific format so that therapies can be catered specifically to the needs of men. There are societal expectations that can affect how they view their own addiction and how comfortable they are in seeking treatment.
Men are typically seen in a position of strength, and admitting to an addiction or mental health issue can be viewed as a weakness in their own mind as well as from society’s view. Being able to have a treatment experience where you engage in therapies alongside other men—administered by male practitioners—can be very beneficial.
Benefits of a men’s rehab program include:
- Less chance of distraction – A men’s rehab program allows clients to fully focus on their recovery without worrying about what members of the opposite sex sitting next to them might think.
- Gender-specific care – Treatment can be catered for male and female clients respectively so that participating in treatment and therapy feels more relatable.
- Support of peers – Being among men who are going through a similar experience, in a group comprised only of men, and led by male counselors, makes men feel more comfortable sharing and learning.

Addiction Therapy Programs in San Diego
Research has shown that having a support group makes for a more successful recovery. It’s why group therapy is a key part of most addiction recovery programs. Sharing struggles and wins, promoting positivity, and learning skills to make good choices when presented with challenges are all benefits of group therapy.
Members of each group therapy session are placed together based on the similarities in their addiction or mental health condition. The goal is to be able to lean on and learn from each other through shared experiences.
Benefits of group therapy include:
- Building trust
- Mutual understanding
- Shared support
- Group encouragement
- A new perspective
- Working collectively on improved behavior
Group therapy might seem intimidating at first, but once members of the group feel comfortable in the setting, they can get the most out of the experience. Being able to hear each person’s stories and connect with people through shared experiences can provide a new perspective. Group therapy works alongside other therapies like individual or family therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) or dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).
Additional benefits of group therapy include:
- Being held accountable for your actions
- Learning to communicate more effectively
- Feeling less shame about your addiction or mental health condition
- Having real-time feedback
