Substance Use Disorder in Men

Though substance use disorder affects both men and women, men are much less likely to seek out addiction treatment. Social pressures, cultural stereotypes and stigma are all factors in how men recover from drug and alcohol addiction. Men who have addictions are often dealing with co-occurring mental disorders such as depression and anxiety. 

Traditionally men have a more difficult time addressing these emotional issues related to their addiction. Statistically, men are more likely to suffer from an addiction to drugs and alcohol compared to women. 

Binge and heavy drinking are more commonly found in men. As well as the usage of addictive substances at an earlier age. Social and peer pressure play a huge factor in how and why men become addicted to illicit substances. 

They take drugs to fit in with their peers. They engage in risky behavior to be accepted into a certain social group. Those same social groups and social stereotypes hinder male acceptance to receive treatment for their addictions.

Levels of Care at our Drug Rehab for Men in Orange County

Inpatient and outpatient treatment at the men’s rehab facility can increase the likelihood of maintaining abstinence from substances. Upon initial intake to the men’s addiction treatment in Orange County, individuals will undergo an initial medical and psychological assessment. Individual evaluations are performed by our medical professionals and addiction specialists. Clients are monitored throughout their treatment episodes at the following levels of care:

Medical Detoxification For Men

Men going through detox and experiencing withdrawal symptoms are initially admitted into inpatient and medically managed intensive programs. In this level of care, patients are monitored 24/7 and they carefully prescribe medications and intense counseling. 

Male patients will receive daily assessments from medical physicians and nurses to help determine their current health status. Generally, men tend to suffer from more severe withdrawal symptoms. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is often a form of pain management used to assist in substance detox.

Residential Drug and Alcohol Rehab For Men

In this level of care, male patients will live in a medically managed environment under 24-hour supervision. The program length varies from patient to patient depending on the severity of their addiction. In RTC, patients are still very vulnerable to substance abuse relapse and cravings. These clients need continued supervised care to remain abstinent from drugs and alcohol. 

This program focuses on treating the psychological aspects of a person’s addiction. Various cognitive behavioral therapies and regular personalized sessions with psychiatrists are effective treatment methods. This allows clinicians to diagnose co-occurring mental health disorders and create an appropriate treatment plan. 

Partial Hospitalization Program For Men

In this outpatient level of care, PHP works for men who have completed initial detox and have begun intensive therapy treatments. This program focuses on targeting and treating co-occurring mental health disorders many patients may be experiencing. Due to the stigma of men and mental health issues, they are less likely to seek treatment. Men are less likely to seek help in addressing their emotional behaviors linked to their addiction. 

There is a stereotype of the masculine strong man. A man doesn’t need to evaluate his emotions. These are toxic traits often placed on many men. 

The outpatient program encourages men to open up to treatment. Effective methods are used to safely address the trauma and other psychological root causes related to drug and alcohol abuse. 

Intensive Outpatient Treatment For Men

As patients move on to lower levels of care, they have the opportunity to continue therapy and other additional treatments. In IOP, men will usually spend about three hours per day in treatment. They will also have the chance to maintain other social responsibilities and commitments. Additional support will be offered through services such as family addiction support, career counseling and assistance in finding sober transitional housing. 

Aftercare For Men

Once patients have completed IOP, they move on to the lowest level of care. Aftercare is a carefully formulated plan to support patients throughout the rest of their recovery after completing intensive treatment programs. Aftercare plans may include physical activities, addiction support programs, and attending individual counseling sessions. 

At the drug rehab for men in Orange County, assigned case managers will assist patients in locating appropriate local support groups and psychiatrists. Continuing addiction treatment therapies is key to maintaining long-term sobriety and living a healthy lifestyle free of drugs and alcohol.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) For Men

In CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), men learn to recognize and effectively change their psychological patterns and behaviors toward their addiction. One of the main principles of CBT is that a person’s emotions, thoughts and behaviors are all connected. Because of this, each aspect has a significant impact on the other. 

Addressing the negative and destructive feelings of addiction teaches patients successful coping techniques. These skills help patients manage their substance and drug abuse cravings.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) For Men

DBT (Dialectical behavior therapy) focuses on management of painful emotions through four key elements:

  • Mindfulness. When patients practice mindfulness, they are concentrating on improving their ability to be present in the current moment. 
  • Distress tolerance. This therapeutic element allows patients to increase their tolerance of negative emotions rather than trying to constantly avoid it. 
  • Emotion regulation. Patients learn strategies to manage negative and intense emotions. 
  • Interpersonal effectiveness. Patients will learn how to communicate with others in a respectful yet assertive manner. This allows for the maintenance of a healthy relationship.

Family Therapy For Men

Family therapy allows the patient and loved ones to understand, communicate and sort out differences and issues related to the addiction. In our rehab for men’s program, each patient will have access to family counseling sessions. With their loved ones, patients address why and how to overcome any issues that have stemmed from alcohol and drug addiction. This allows for open communication and setting into place healthy boundaries for patients and family members. 

Group Therapy For Men

In Group Therapy, men are encouraged to share, engage and talk about their issues with the therapist and one another. By discussing their collective struggles, patients feel a sense of community within their group. They gain a sense of empowerment to overcome their addictions through the support of fellow peers.

Group sessions are conducted under a safe and structured environment. It allows patients to feel comfortable and be honest about the difficulties of their addiction and how they can move forward to overcome it

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) For Men

With EMDR, patients learn to reprocess negative trauma memories related to their addiction. Patients are subjected to a traumatic memory while simultaneously experiencing bilateral stimulation. This helps to reduce the intensity of the emotion associated with the specific memory.

In the men’s drug rehab facilities, EMDR has been proven highly effective. It helps patients with symptoms of PTSD and other co-occurring mental health disorders associated with their addiction.
