Addiction doesn’t discriminate, but men and women have unique needs when it comes to treating their addiction to drugs and alcohol. With over 25 years of experience in treating substance use disorders and other co-occurring mental illnesses, Hotel California by the Sea understands the true nature of addiction in men – and how to help them beat it. Depending on his stage in life and personal experiences, one man might have different treatment needs than another. Hotel California by the Sea employs a renowned staff of addiction experts who determine what therapies are right for our male clients, and create a unique treatment plan to match these needs. HCBTS’s rehab for men program targets two age groups: mature men over 30 and young adult men.
Rehab For Men Housing Features and Location
Hotel California by the Sea’s all-male addiction treatment program paves the way for men to reclaim their lives and adopt a new, sober lifestyle. Our rehab for men program is set in Southern California, a metropolis of sunshine with a booming sober community. With thousands of 12 step meetings every day, Southern California is the ideal place for men in the United States to get – and stay – sober.
Barriers To Men Seeking Addiction Treatment
Sometimes it’s difficult for a man to seek recovery from his addiction. Men are socialized to only show strength and self-sufficiency, sometimes making it difficult to ask for help out of a fear of seeming “weak”. However, we’re here to tell you that seeking treatment for a substance use disorder is an act of courage. It is only with the help of understanding peers and our experienced clinical staff that men are able to overcome such stigmas and accept the help they need (and deserve) to recover.
Rehab for men levels of care
Inpatient treatment and outpatient treatment at a reputable drug and alcohol rehab can increase the chances of a man staying sober. When a client first arrives at Hotel California by the Sea’s rehab for men program, he partakes in an initial medical and psychological assessment by our trained addiction specialists. From the beginning until the end of someone’s stay with us, a client is routinely monitored by their assigned therapist, case manager, and psychiatrist. HCBTS employs multiple levels of care to address each stage of a clients’ recovery process, including:
- Medical Detoxification
- Residential Drug and Alcohol Rehab
- Partial Hospitalization
- Intensive Outpatient Treatment
- Outpatient Treatment
- Continuing Care / Aftercare
There is no specific time limit for completing any level of care. Instead, a man’s transition to his next level of treatment depends solely on his personal needs and the needs that his clinical team sees fit.
Evidence-Based Approaches For Men’s Addiction Treatment
Addiction must be tackled from many angles. A treatment method that works for one man might not be effective for another, making it vital for our clients to have access to many remedies, some of which include:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
- Marriage and Family Therapy
- Group Therapy
- 12 Step programs
Benefits Of Men Only Treatment
Gender-specific treatment provides men the ability to focus on their recovery while developing strong and supportive relationships with other men. In such a vulnerable time of a man’s life, forming strong, healthy relationships with peers he can trust is vital for him to continue on a higher path.
In rehab for men-only treatment programs, men can privately and explicitly discuss male-specific issues, such as the struggles of masculinity or surviving traumatic experiences. Whether it is a man’s first time or fifth time attending treatment, our Seashore Residential program gives men the chance to fully address their issues in a safe and nonjudgmental environment. Men enter Hotel California by the Sea’s men’s program with guilt, shame, and loneliness- but they leave our program with faith, vital connection, and a strong foundation that prepares them for their future.
