The stigma of addiction keeps many men from getting the help they need when drugs or alcohol consume them. Many men think they should be able to handle the painful withdrawal symptoms on their own and learn never to show weakness. A men’s rehab program can give you the help you need to get over your addiction and regain control of your life.
At Chapters Recovery, we want you to know you are not alone in your addiction recovery, and there is no shame in seeking help. It takes a strong man to admit he needs help. Our outpatient drug and alcohol addiction treatment programs can help men address their addiction issues no matter where they are on their recovery journey. If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction, call [Direct] to learn more about our men’s rehab program in New England.
How Does Addiction Affect Men?
Addiction creates painful symptoms that will not stop until the cravings are satisfied with drugs or alcohol. Your body will do all it can to get you to cave into the powerful cravings for your substance of choice. Even to the point of causing physical pain and other serious problems. Some of the unique symptoms men will face include:
- Decrease in sexual performance
- Higher risk of cancer
- More severe withdrawal symptoms
- Higher risk of death
Benefits of Enrolling in a Men’s Rehab Program in New England
Men will avoid seeking the help they need with their addiction because they are unable or unwilling to open up around women. The societal notion that men have to be strong and never show weakness will keep them from seeking the help they need.
Enrolling in a men’s rehab program in New England will leave those preconceived notions at the door. It will allow you to focus on your addiction recovery in a men’s rehab center. There are a variety of benefits of a men’s rehab program.
A Comfortable and Supportive Male Environment
When you are in a group of men, it will be easier for you to relax. You can then openly discuss your addiction struggles without needing to act tough in front of women. This is vital for men who are struggling with sensitive issues like sexual dysfunction and feelings of inadequacy.
Zero Peer and Societal Pressure
A men’s rehab center will be an open place. The preconceived notion of men needing never to show weakness is gone. You will be free to open up to your peers and be your authentic self. You will feel more comfortable talking about the issues men face with addiction and understand how it affects you.
Male-Centric Discussions and Activities
During your therapy, the talks will focus on what is essential to men and their addiction troubles. Group activities will be the games and activities men enjoy the most to promote strong male bonding opportunities. The shared goal of life-long sobriety will help you form lasting relationships with the men in your group.
When you hear your peers’ struggles with their addiction, it will make you feel more comfortable opening up and sharing your experiences. Their feedback can give you a fresh insight into your addiction. It can also have a stronger impact because it comes from a man going through the same struggles you are with your addiction.
