Men and women often experience drug and alcohol addiction with different biological responses, triggers, and co-occurring issues. As a result, for some people, treatment is most successful in gender-specific programs. At Four Circles, we offer a men’s-only drug and alcohol addiction treatment program designed to empower young men who prefer to address their issues with the support of other males.
About the Men’s Program at Four Circles
Four Circles Recovery Center offers a male-only drug & alcohol addiction adventure-based treatment program where young men can address sensitive emotional issues in a safe, single-gender environment that promotes openness and honesty.
Our male-only program places an emphasis on self-esteem, body image, the transition into manhood, and the unique societal pressures facing young men today.
Benefits of the Men’s Program at Four Circles
Culturally, men tend to have a difficult time opening up. As a result, their emotional issues often go unaddressed and unresolved. For young men with substance abuse problems, avoiding negative feelings and underlying issues can result in relapse or continued use of drugs and alcohol.
In our men’s groups, male group leaders serve as role models who open discussions and encourage healthy expressions of emotion. When men share their hopes, fears, and frustrations with therapists and other men who are struggling with similar issues, they begin to embrace new coping skills that will help facilitate a successful recovery.
Through the outdoor, adventure-based component of our male-only drug and alcohol addiction treatment program, men have a unique opportunity to express their emotions and challenge themselves physically and mentally. When conflicts arise in an outdoor environment, group leaders work with clients to develop effective ways of dealing with those problems. Over time, clients learn to ask for help and rely on one another instead of attempting to endure every struggle alone.
