At Blueprints for Recovery, we believe in doing everything we can to ensure
the people who come to our doors have the most chances as possible to
achieve sobriety and overcome drug and alcohol addictions. Part of our
successful “formula” for truly beneficial
treatment programs and
therapies was the decision to make Blueprints for Recovery an
all-male addiction treatment center, specifically for men aged between 18 and 30. While it is true that many
young women need rehabilitation services, it is also true that there are
many benefits to gender-specific treatments and therapies. Our intentional
focus on this specific demographic has further enhanced our chances of
helping people defeat addiction.

Differences Between Addiction Symptoms in Men & Women
Men and women have different reactions to drugs, alcohol, and addiction
due to inherent dissimilarities in their physiologies. This is one of
the main reasons why Blueprints for Recovery has decided to be a male-only
addiction treatment center. By intentionally directing our treatments
and therapies towards how men react to addiction, we are better prepared
for the road ahead and its many challenges.
The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Addiction notes these differences
between men and women when it comes to drug and alcohol use:
Men experience intoxication for a shorter duration than women due to their
on-average lower amount of body fat and water. However, this may cause men to
binge drink more often, as more drinks are needed to maintain drunkenness.
- Men have higher amounts of alcohol-fighting enzymes in their systems, which
increases tolerance. Once again, this can cause a man to drink more heavily
and more often.
- Men tend to be slower to fall into a full cycle of addiction and substance
use disorder than women. This is a key indicator that the approach to
treatment should be different.
There are also studies that indicate a majority of women who are struggling with
drug addiction have experienced sexual abuse in the past, usually before the age of 16.
On the other hand, men seem to begin heavy drug and alcohol use due to
ongoing emotional detachments.
Benefits of All-Male Addiction Treatment Programs
In recognition that men react differently to drug and alcohol use than
women, it is time to consider the benefits of an all-male rehab center.
The key advantage is that it allows our Prescott drug and alcohol rehabilitation
specialists to direct treatments and therapies towards the specifics of
typically-male physiology and psychology. The other benefit that most
men who come to Blueprints for Recovery appreciate is that communicating
with others in
group therapy sessions feels easier and more natural.
In today’s society, it is not uncommon for men to feel intimidated,
distracted, or uncomfortable around women they do not know. However, when
surrounded by men they have not met before, men tend to have a much easier
time opening up, sharing stories, and listening. Furthermore, as substance
use disorder usually begins for a specific set of reasons in men, an all-male
group can more readily connect to the tales of others about “how
it all began.”
