A gender-specific rehab may be the right option for you. In these programs, you will work with other people of the same gender. That means you get to spend more time with either women or men while working on your own healing and sobriety. At Crestview Recovery, we provide you with a range of tools to make this type of rehab effective for you.
Is Gender-Specific Rehab the Best Option for You?
It’s not always easy to see whether a men’s rehab program or women’s rehab program is the best choice. This may not be something you’ve even thought about before. Yet, it can help to think about what you expect in rehab and what may have held you back so far from getting that help. Here are a few of the questions you may want to think about before you make a decision about gender-specific rehab.
Are You Able to Open Up with Ease to Anyone?
One of the keys to your success in rehab is to open up to the people in your group therapy sessions. You need to be able to trust them. That’s not always easy to do, especially when you are with people you are trying to impress or just don’t feel comfortable around. In a gender-specific rehab, some of that is taken away. You may be able to relax a bit more to open up to what’s happening to you.
Some people have past trauma that’s behind their addiction and mental health needs. For example, if being around men, when you feel vulnerable is too much for you, that’s okay. You don’t have to do so. In any situation where you do not feel comfortable, you’re not likely going to get the best type of treatment for your needs.
Do You Want Treatment That’s Best Suited to Who You Are?
In our gender-specific treatment programs, we work with individuals in always they can understand and take in the information. For example, men and women learn in different ways. They process information differently. They also engage with or respond better to some treatments than others. By utilizing the right type of strategy for you based on your gender, we may be able to ensure you have a better outcome.
Do You Want to Build New Relationships?
Addiction therapy is not the place to find love-based relationships. It can be a place to find new friendships. It may also be the ideal place for you to work on improving your communication and interpersonal skills. That is yet another benefit of a gender-specific treatment program. For some people, it may give you the ability to create friends again that you haven’t done in a long time.
Finding the Right Program for You Is Critical
There may be times when you find it hard not to embrace people of the opposite gender. Yet, during the time you are in your treatment program, we want to ensure you feel as at ease as possible. We offer this type of gender-specific treatment for many of our programs. That may include these treatment programs available to you today.
- Extended care programs
- Intensive outpatient program
- Outpatient treatment program
- Dual diagnosis treatment
- Partial hospitalization program
You don’t have to make a decision just yet. You just need to be ready to get into treatment.
