Navigating Addiction Treatment: Understanding Gender-Specific Programs at Impact Wellness Network


If you or a loved one is looking into addiction treatment, you might feel overwhelmed by the many options available. At Impact Wellness Network, we understand that finding the right program is crucial. You may come across gender-specific treatment options, which means men and women are treated in separate programs. This approach is based on extensive research showing that men and women experience addiction and recovery differently.

Studies show that men and women often have different rates of dependence, preferences for substances, and physical and mental reactions to substance abuse. Men and women also have different reasons for starting and seeking help for substance use. At Impact Wellness Network, we take these differences into account when developing personalized treatment plans. Our men’s program is designed to address the unique challenges that men face in their journey to sobriety.

It’s important to note that when we talk about the differences between “men” and “women” in treatment, we are focusing on biological differences. While we fully support and respect all gender identities, physical biology—your sex at birth—can impact how addiction develops and how best to treat it. Understanding these factors is a crucial part of beginning your recovery journey with us at Impact Wellness Network, where we tailor our approach to meet your individual needs.

How Men Are Affected Differently by Substance Abuse

Biological gender plays a significant role in the development of drug and alcohol use disorders, as indicated by data from various national studies. Several factors contribute to this, including the age at which individuals first use substances, underlying causes of addiction (such as social factors, environmental influences, mental health conditions, and trauma), biological responses to drugs and alcohol, and peer relationships.

Men experience drug and alcohol use differently, and their patterns of substance use and treatment-seeking behaviors often differ from those of women. For instance, surveys on addiction treatment programs reveal that men are more likely to report abusing marijuana and alcohol, while women are more prone to prescription drug use and abuse. Biological gender also influences why men initiate substance use; many turn to drugs or alcohol in the belief that it will provide physical or psychological benefits, such as increased muscle mass, weight management, heightened sex drive, or improved mood and social interactions.

Another biological difference affecting men’s substance use is the severity of their addiction patterns. While men typically initiate substance use at higher rates than women, their escalation to more severe levels of abuse tends to be slower. Men may also delay seeking help at addiction treatment centers. However, once they do seek assistance, men exhibit higher admission rates to addiction treatment centers compared to women. Moreover, men who undergo addiction treatment often present with fewer co-occurring conditions (dual diagnoses) at the outset.

Statistics consistently show that men, across various demographics, engage in drug and alcohol use more frequently than females. Recent data from the 2019 National Survey on Drug Use and Health indicates that approximately 12% of males aged 12 and older have at least one substance use disorder, compared to 7% of females. This suggests that men are 50% more likely than women to struggle with substance use disorders.

The Benefits of Choosing a Men’s Drug Rehab Facility

When it comes to addiction treatment, men and women often face different challenges, requiring treatment programs tailored to their specific needs. The most effective programs acknowledge these differences and design treatment models and environments that address the unique nature of each gender. For men seeking recovery, the most favorable outcomes are often achieved at a men’s drug and alcohol rehab program. At our gender-specific treatment center, our experienced team will craft a comprehensive, evidence-based program focusing on the distinct concerns of men striving for sobriety.

Men navigating the path to recovery have distinct physical, psychological, and spiritual needs that must be addressed within their treatment plan. Physiologically, men process substances differently due to differences in body composition, including size, weight, and build. With lower levels of fatty tissue and higher water content, men can metabolize alcohol and other drugs more efficiently, reducing the risk of physical complications like organ damage from substance abuse.

Psychologically, men also grapple with gender-specific issues during addiction treatment. In mixed-gender therapy settings, men may hesitate to share deeply personal experiences or emotions related to their addiction due to fear, shame, or discomfort. By participating in a men-only therapy environment, individuals may feel more comfortable opening up about the root causes of their substance use struggles, fostering a deeper level of emotional expression and connection.

Given that men often experience co-occurring mood disorders at higher rates than women, seeking gender-focused addiction treatment can lead to more successful and lasting recovery outcomes. In a men-specific program, therapy sessions address these mental health issues in a supportive setting alongside peers who share similar struggles. Research indicates that men benefit from treatment programs focused on problem-solving and behavior modification, leading to improved treatment outcomes and long-term sobriety.

At Impact Wellness Network, we recognize the unique nature of male-focused treatment and collaborate with each individual to tailor a program that aligns with their specific treatment needs and goals. With our compassionate and experienced team, we are committed to helping men achieve lasting recovery and regain control of their lives.
