MEN & ADDICTION
Drug Treatment For Men In Kentucky
Across the United States, more than 22 million people struggle with at least one substance use disorder. Unfortunately, fewer than 10% will ever seek the help they need to overcome addiction. If you are ready to seek help, but are confused about choosing the best program for you, the team at Robert Alexander Center can help. If you have started researching treatment centers, you may have noticed thousands of different substance abuse rehab programs, each offering different levels of care and providing different specialized treatment models. When choosing the right program for you, it is vital to consider your specific treatment needs and the treatment environment that will offer the most significant degree of comfort as you learn how to put addiction struggles in the past. Considerable research has shown people seeking addiction recovery are more likely to complete their entire course of treatment if they are in a setting where they feel safe, supported, and comfortable communicating with treatment providers and other members of the treatment community.
If you have started researching treatment programs, you may have considered choosing a program that provides gender-focused treatment. Different programs address gender-specific addiction treatment needs in different ways. Some programs offer addiction treatment in an entirely gender-specific setting. This means their treatment environment provides therapy for either women only or men only. Other programs, like Robert Alexander Center (RAC), provide comprehensive, evidence-based treatment programs designed to address the unique treatment needs of men and women. Although our programs are open to all genders and gender identities, we offer a range of therapeutic models designed to focus on the unique treatment needs of men and women.
We believe everyone has the ability to recover from addiction.
Our drug and alcohol rehab in KY is on a mission to truly make a lasting impact on those affected by the disease of addiction in Kentucky, and beyond.
I HIGHLY recommend allowing RAC to provide the care and tools for your lifelong sobriety. I love every individual there for giving me a new lease on life!
I had a very nice time. Community and staff are fantastic, beyond what was expected. I had lots of eye opening talks, learned recovery strategies, and had lots of fun with other people just like me. I am excited to move forward to another one of their programs!
I absolutely LOVED RAC, and all of the staff. I was absolutely terrified to go to rehab. But it has been such a warm and welcoming experience. Starting with my detox, all of the staff and nurses made sure of it my needs were met. The ARPN has been a God send. She makes sure you're comfortable. I would recommend RAC to anyone who is ready to get the help they so much deserve.
The Robert Alexander center is wonderful place to recover from drugs and alcohol the detox portion of my recovery here was amazing I felt comfortable at all times. When I moved over to the residential side the group therapy and the individual therapy both did wonders for my self confidence and self worth. This place is a 10 out of 10 for anyone wanting to recover from drugs
My name is Jeff upon coming here you will feel anxious and worried about where you’re going and what you’re getting into. However you will be more than pleasantly surprised because the staff and other residence are great, the education you will get is outstanding and helpful. Just absorb it all and you will be better. Do not ama after a few days because it’s not your thing because it’s not your thing, it will become your thing if you let it. Good luck.

HOW TO KNOW IF SOMEONE IS ADDICTED
Are Men Affected Differently by
Biology (at birth) plays a significant role in why people turn to drugs and alcohol. National statistics indicate biological gender is a vital component of substance use and abuse factors Examples of these factors include the type of substance one uses, the age one starts using, the root causes behind addiction (i.e., trauma, mental health, social factors, etc.) and how their body and brain react to drugs or alcohol.
For example, women are statistically more likely than men to report abusing prescription drugs. On the other hand, men are more likely to struggle with challenges related to alcohol and marijuana use. Biology also plays a significant role in why men turn to drugs or alcohol. Research indicates men often begin using drugs or alcohol due to the perceived benefits of using. Men often turn to substances for benefits such as improved sexual drive and performance, improved social skills, enhanced concentration, or enhanced athletic ability.
Another essential biological difference between men and women who struggle with substance abuse focuses on the severity of drug or alcohol use patterns. Generally, women begin using at lower rates than men. However, their frequency of use and the amount they use escalates faster than males. Men are also slower to seek and enter addiction treatment, but admissions rates to addiction treatment programs are statistically higher for men (67%) than women. Men generally present with fewer co-occurring mental health disorders when seeking addiction treatment.
Recent data on the National Survey on Drug Use and Health shows an ongoing disproportionate level of substance abuse and addiction among males of all demographics. According to the 2017 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, as many as 12% of males over age twelve meet the diagnostic criteria for at least one substance use disorder. This is compared to a rate of less than 7% for females, indicating that women struggle with substance use disorders in nearly 50% of males.

PREPARING FOR TREATMENT
The Benefits of Going to a
Men’s Drug Rehab Facility
The struggles men and women experience as a result of addiction are different. Therefore, their treatment needs to mirror the unique needs of each gender and each individual seeking help to get and stay sober. For this reason, the most significant treatment outcomes occur when seeking treatment in a program at Robert Alexander Center, where treatment models focus on the differences between the genders.
Men have different treatment needs due to how drugs and alcohol affect their bodies and minds. Biologically, male and female bodies are physically different. As a result of differing size, weight, stature, and other factors, men can process alcohol and drugs differently than women. Because male bodies contain less fatty tissue and more water than females, they are less susceptible to the effects of alcohol because fat retains alcohol, and water dilutes it. This can expose women to a higher risk of physical organ damage from chronic substance use and abuse.
There is also a range of gender-specific social concerns people experience during addiction treatment. Men seeking sobriety frequently struggle with expressing complex emotions or challenging experiences related to addiction when participating in mixed-gender therapy sessions. Men in these environments may feel hesitant to disclose the events or circumstances that led to addiction when women are part of the larger therapy group. Their hesitancy may increase if the triggering event or trauma that led to addiction involved members of the opposite sex. Therapy sessions geared towards the specific needs of men in the therapeutic environment allow men to express emotions and fears where they are surrounded by peers who may share similar experiences.
Men struggling with a drug or alcohol use disorder often experience co-occurring mood disorders at a greater rate than women. Because of this, men may have an increased opportunity to attain and maintain sobriety in a gender-focused addiction treatment program that addresses these issues while surrounded by other men who can relate to their emotions. Men with a history of being the aggressor in physical, emotional, or sexual abuse situations should always participate in a gender-specific addiction treatment program.
Gender-specific therapy sessions can also focus on providing the type of care and therapeutic environment that is most beneficial to the group members. Research indicates women are generally more comfortable and successful in a treatment setting where participants are more open and willing to discuss past trauma or addiction struggles. Men, however, are usually more successful in programs that are less personal and more directed toward problem-solving and behavior modification. Gender-focused programs at Robert Alexander Center consider these critical treatment differences when working with you to design a treatment program to help you achieve your treatment goals.
For addiction treatment to be the most successful, it must address your unique needs and goals. The first step in finding the ideal treatment program is determining the level of care you need to safely and successfully overcome addiction. Gender-focused addiction therapy can occur in a range of treatment settings, including inpatient (residential) or outpatient programs. The most successful addiction men’s drug rehab facilities
