Substance Use Disorder in Men

Social pressures, cultural stereotypes and the stigma of addiction are all important factors in how drug and alcohol addiction affect men and how they recover. Because of these reasons, men are much less likely to seek out addiction treatment and get the help they need and deserve. Statistics show that men are at greater risk of developing an addiction to drugs and alcohol compared to women.

In men, binging and heavy drinking is a common factor in the development of alcohol addiction. This is often exacerbated by peer and social pressures among young male adults looking to be accepted into certain social groups or be seen to have a certain social status. Young men are also often pressured into using illicit drugs which then leads to the development of other co-occurring mental health related substance addictions. These same social groups and stereotypes ultimately hinder male acceptance to seek out and receive treatment. 

Rehab for Men: Levels of Care

Drug and alcohol rehab for men increases the likelihood of maintaining long-term recovery. Our inpatient and outpatient programs allow our patients to safely and effectively receive the necessary care and treatment they need to attain a healthy and happier life without the dependence of drugs and alcohol. Upon entering our facility, patients will receive a full assessment and begin treatment throughout the following levels of care:

  • Detox
  • RTC (Residential Inpatient Program)
  • PHP (Partial Hospitalization Program)
  • IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program
  • Aftercare

Medical Detoxification for Men

Drug and alcohol detox is designed to help patients rid the body of harmful and mind-altering substances in a safe and effective way. As the most crucial phase in the rehab process, many men tend to experience intense and uncomfortable physical and emotional withdrawal symptoms during substance detox. Some of these may include increased depression and anxiety, intense nausea and even an elevated heart rate. Because of this, it is best to detox under the guidance and supervision of a drug and alcohol rehab program where patients will be monitored 24/7 and can be treated with MAT and other forms of withdrawal management. 

Residential Drug and Alcohol Rehab for Men

In this level of care, residential inpatient treatment allows men to remain in the care of our medical rehab team. Our male patients will work on the physical, mental and emotional stressors caused by their substance addiction issues. Once detox has been completed, patients will participate in various treatment therapies such as CBT, DBT, group therapy and our unique EMDR therapy. Residential inpatient treatment programs for men provide life-changing experiences in order to heal and recover from their substance addiction. 

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) for Men

The partial hospitalization program (PHP) at our drug and alcohol rehab facility for men allows our male patients who need the extra care, time to continue intensive therapeutic treatments while being able to transition outside of facility care. Our patients will continue substance addiction treatments throughout the majority of the day with our certified therapists and psychiatrists and have the opportunity to return home at the end of the night.  

Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP) for Men

In the next step down in level of care, intensive outpatient program (IOP) for our male patients consists of a more flexible schedule with continued therapies while transitioning to life outside of rehab. Patients will spend less time in treatment and more time without outside activities and responsibilities including recreational activities, career and family obligations as well as participating in healthy social activities. During this treatment program, patients are also encouraged to participate in local addiction recovery support groups and take advantage of our support services such as educational and career assistance, assistance in locating sober transitional housing and family support services. 


At Hotel California by the Sea Ohio, our aftercare program for recovery males offers various support services to help them as they transition out of rehab care. We are invested in all of our patients and see you through the entire recovery process. Aftercare is a carefully formulated plan to support our male patients throughout the rest of recovery after they have completed intensive treatment programs. Aftercare plans recommended by the clinical team can include participating in physical activities, addiction support groups and attending individual counseling sessions. Most importantly, we highly encourage patients to continue addiction treatment therapies, as it is the key to maintaining long-term sobriety.

Evidence-Based Approaches for Men’s Addiction Treatment

When it comes to substance addiction treatment, there is no one size fits all approach. Our men’s drug rehab facilities offer targeted treatment methods to address the unique needs of male patients in different stages of their lives. Patients will have access to various cognitive therapies, addiction recovery support groups, and individual sessions with psychiatrists. Together with our male patients, we will work to uncover the root cause of their addiction and create a comprehensive and effective treatment plan for long-term recovery.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) For Men

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is the process of changing negative psychological patterns and behaviors related to addiction into positive and productive thinking. When men are able to address and cope with the negative and destructive emotions and behaviors of their addiction, they can successfully combat their substance abuse disorder. This form of “talk therapy” is one of the most widely used treatment methods when addressing individuals suffering from a substance addiction and co-occurring mental health issues.

Family Therapy For Men

Addiction can often be a lonely place and without the support of friends, family and support groups, recovery can be a difficult process. In family therapy, our male patients are able to sit down with their loved ones to create a better understanding between the two parties. Family therapy sessions allow for open communication, a better understanding for family members who are trying to understand addiction, and a way to set healthy boundaries. Research has found that those who have support systems during addiction, are more likely to recover and maintain long-term sobriety. 

Group Therapy For Men (DBT)

In group therapy, sessions are guided by certified therapists, counselors or psychiatrists and conducted under a safe and structured environment. Here, patients will feel comfortable to be honest about the difficulties of their addiction, the difficulties of recovery and ways they have learned to overcome these obstacles. When group members openly discuss their collective struggles, each patient is able to feel a part of a community and receive support from fellow recovering peers. 

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) For Men

In EMDR therapy, patients will learn various techniques and skills to reprocess traumatic memories related to their addiction. In the men’s drug and alcohol rehab facility, EMDR therapy has been proven highly effective in helping those suffering from PTSD and other trauma related co-occurring mental health conditions. This specialized treatment is exclusively offered at our inpatient and outpatient facilities to help our male patients suffering from severe trauma based substance abuse disorders.

Benefits of Men Only Rehab

There are many benefits of an all male gender focused substance addiction rehab program. The social fear of being perceived as weak and vulnerable, prevents many men from seeking out needed treatment. Traditional stereotypes of masculinity and how to handle emotions can be a huge barrier for those in need of treatment. 

In our drug rehab facility for men, our patients will be able to focus on receiving treatment with the added social and cultural pressures from the outside world. Treatment at our rehab for men includes therapy focused on male issues and men’s recovery. Being in a program with other male peers facing the same situations and experiences, it is easier for them to open up to treatment and cope with distressing emotions knowing they are not alone in their struggles.
