For men and women stuck in the vicious cycle of addiction, recovery often seems hopeless. Fortunately, compassionate help is available at Serenity Lodge Lake Arrowhead. Learn how our men’s and women’s addiction rehab program helps Guests on their journeys to sobriety.
Why Gender-Responsive Is More Effective
Many addiction treatment programs fail to take gender needs into account. Although they may use evidence-based approaches, they often mix male and female participants together in treatment. In many ways, these types of rehab centers can stunt Guests’ growth.
To begin with, men generally have different needs in recovery than women. For instance, many women who seek addiction treatment have underlying issues related to physical, mental, and sexual abuse. Conversely, men more frequently deal with inadequacy issues because society places intense pressure on them to be breadwinners.
Additionally, a co-ed treatment environment can promote unintentional distractions. Both men and women can be vulnerable during the early stages of recovery. Instead of reaching for the bottle to cope with this difficult time, they may turn to companionship. While support during early recovery is important, newfound intimacy can cause individuals to lose focus on their recovery.
A gender-responsive men’s and women’s addiction rehab program takes these concerns into account. Although we accept both male and female Guests into our program, they will be isolated from each other during residential inpatient treatment while receiving the individualized attention they deserve. Under 24/7 supervision and away from their toxic home environments, Guests can truly focus on themselves.
