Addiction affects people from all walks of life. Addiction affects both men and women every day across the country. While addiction is not gendered, many find greater treatment support from single-gender detox centers. Both men and women find themselves at greater ease when detoxing with their own gender. For many men, a men’s-only addiction treatment center or men’s detox center can offer a safe and effective place to begin detox and recovery. Many people may not consider a men’s-only facility when looking for a detox center. Men’s-only programs can offer men the opportunity to heal with like minds and overcome addiction in both inpatient or outpatient programs.

What Is a Men’s Detox Center?
Men’s detox centers are detox and recovery centers just for men. For many men and women, single-gender detox and rehabilitation can offer a break from daily life. Men’s detox centers offer solidarity and can make men feel less alone in their addiction. In many programs, men learn how to talk about their feelings with other men, sometimes for the first time. Men’s detox programs may include:
- Group therapy
- Individual therapy
- Medically assisted detox
- Scheduled group activities
- Scheduled personal time
- Nutrition counseling
- Character-building activities
- Outdoor and athletic activities
- EMDR and trauma therapy
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy
- Family therapy
Men’s-only detox can provide many men a safe place to explore their addiction triggers. Some may address the effects of societal pressures that trigger their addiction. Through men’s-only programs, clients witness their own experiences mirrored in the men around them. Together, clients can address the impact of toxic masculinity has on individual and collective drug and alcohol abuse. Some men make long-term friends, find sponsors, and join alumni programs after detox to foster supportive relationships with other men.
Benefits of a Men’s Detox Center
Why choose a men’s detox center? Every person’s detox and recovery are different. Many men may not be interested in a men’s-only facility. Others may gravitate towards detoxing with other men. If you or a man you know is looking for the right detox center, consider the benefits of a men’s detox center. Single-gender mirroring and solidarity can help speed recovery and make those struggling with addiction realize they are not alone. When one man sees other men in recovery dealing with similar life stress at work and home, he realizes addiction is common. At the same time, sponsors and alumni can help men see their own recovery as achievable.
One of the main benefits of a men’s detox center is it gives men the opportunity to heal together. A men’s detox center can be a man’s first step towards recovery, healing relationships with other people in his life, and confronting personal trauma and feelings.
