Rehab for Men at Washburn House
Substance use disorder affects men and women differently. Thus, recovering with a gender-specific treatment program can help you heal more quickly. Counseling and therapy in our men’s rehab program approaches treatment from a male perspective. The men who choose Washburn House for their recovery will find commonality among peers, including the problems they face that may be unique to men. These can include:
- Men are less likely to seek treatment
- Men are more likely to use illicit, as opposed to prescription, drugs
- Addiction tends to be more severe in men
- More men than women die from an overdose
- Men are more likely to consider suicide as a way out
- Men are more likely to receive a dual diagnosis
The addiction statistics for men may seem a bit bleaker than they are for women, but the truth is — addiction is tough on everyone, including the loved ones, families, friends, and coworkers of the person who is struggling. If you’re a man who battles substance use disorder daily, contact our men’s rehab program at Washburn House today.
The Toll Addiction Takes
Substance use disorder is a chronic disease that can be just as destructive as cancer, diabetes, or heart disease. Left untreated, addiction can eventually kill you. Depending upon the drug you’re using, long-term effects can be devastating and may include:
- Decline in cognitive function, memory loss, confusion
- Depression, apathy, neglected hygiene
- Organ damage
- Hallucinations, paranoia, and aggression
- Rapid heartbeat, high blood pressure, heart attack
But even if you’re lucky enough to avoid the worst symptoms of drug addiction, you may still experience personal losses in the forms of relationships that go awry, careers that become stalled, or legal problems that land you in jail. It’s not uncommon for a person who’s addicted to drugs or alcohol to lose their spouse, access to their children, their home, their job, or even their life. If you recognize yourself or someone you care about in these descriptions, it’s time to reach out to the men’s rehab program at Washburn House today for a fresh start.
