Drug rehab programs for adult men make it possible for male treatment clients in Whittington to immerse themselves in treatment and recovery with the social comfort and peer support that can only be acquired in a gender specific program. Just as women excel in programs designed only for women, adult men face many life difficulties and challenges to their sobriety that only other males can understand. There is sufficient empathy and understanding from fellow men in treatment, and compassionate rehabilitation counselors and rehab staff who can relate to what they are going through and how to meet their specific needs.
Males tend to abuse drugs and alcohol at higher rates than women, but also tend to finish rehabilitation at higher rates than females. When in a program for adult men, this increases the chances for rehab program completion because male clients aren't vulnerable to the distractions they might encounter in a co-ed rehab program. This allows for complete immersion into the rehabilitation experience, where clients can address male specific issues and work with counselors and their peers to sort them out. Many drug rehab programs for adult men provide depression and suicide prevention given that male clients are at greater risk of suicide according to statistics, as well as treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders, holistic (drug free) treatment and anger management therapy.
