Men have unique needs and challenges that are gender and age-specific including trauma, stress, anxiety, shame, anger, and an inability to focus. We have separate and distinct programs designed to focus on those issues.
Men behave differently when women are present. A coed environment may present sexual tension and social pressure which distracts from the mission of recovery. Single-gender treatment removes the social pressures and other potential distractions of a coed environment and allows the men to get in touch with their emotions and experience their reaction to those emotions.
Men learn differently than women. They learn best in short sessions involving movement. We have developed separate and distinct programs for men designed to focus on their learning styles. We offer a wide range of therapeutic activities in single-gender spaces which are designed for the psychological and physical well- being of the men in recovery.
We teach Life Skills focusing on the basics of personal development, specific to men. Each Life Skills Training session consists of a an interactive group format. These are the tools and skills that help a man achieve and maintain the independence they need to sustain a life in recovery.
There is one important benefit of our program that addresses the issue of social isolation. Men need to be a part of a group or “brotherhood.” Single-gender therapy allows them to be part of a supportive group of other men who have the same goal of finding a life of meaningful and sustained recovery.
