Midwest Detox Center believes in the idea of providing individualized treatment to clients. We believe that there are multiple ways for individuals to achieve recovery. There’s also no question that men and women often have different experiences when it comes to addiction. That’s why we feel it is important to tailor our detox programs to address those distinctions and provide a better experience to everyone. Gender-specific care offers a safe space for men and women to purge their bodies of toxins from substance abuse before working on their addiction issues.
Benefits of a Women’s Detox Program
While women tend to fall into addiction at a lower rate than men, they tend to deal with more severe fallout. Our female clients often have concerns tied to childcare and other family responsibilities. There may be a lot of shame at the idea of being seen as a bad partner, wife, or mother. Admission to a women’s detox program can provide the kind of treatment women need to start rebuilding their life.
Many women suffer from an underlying mental health issue like depression. Medical detox can be more critical for women since they are more likely to suffer physical side effects from an addiction. They may also be more vulnerable to experiencing various forms of abuse while under the influence.
The advantages that a women’s detox program can offer include:
- Feeling free to open up about trauma related to addiction
- Not having the distractions of attention from the opposite sex
- Getting the chance to support and learn from other women in similar circumstances
- Receiving treatment designed specifically for women
Benefits of a Men’s Detox Program
Societal pressures can have a large effect on how men open up to treatment. Many are taught from a young age that they must appear strong to the world. The idea of getting help for an addiction can seem like an admission of weakness. Men may also fear the idea of showing vulnerability by admitting themselves to a medical detox program.
One common difference between men and women is that men may take longer to open themselves up in treatment. A medical detox program can be one way for men to start feeling comfortable about addressing unresolved issues that could be driving their addiction.
Dealing with substance use disorders can be a complicated process that can involve a lot of setbacks. Some men think they must tough it out by going cold-turkey to prove their masculinity. That can lead to disastrous health consequences, including death.
Participating in a men’s detox program can benefit male clients by:
- Allowing men to bond with others who are struggling with problems similar to their own
- Removing any sexual tension from the recovery process
- Providing access to treatment meant to address how men deal with addiction and recovery
- Offers the chance to build a support network of other men
Why You Should Consider Medical Detox
Medical detox offers male and female clients the chance to start breaking free of their addiction. You receive 24-7 supervision from a dedicated staff of medical professionals. They can help you safely rid your system of the lingering effects of a drug or alcohol addiction.
Once you have completed detox, the Midwest Detox Center staff can help you devise a treatment plan to help you achieve long-term recovery. Getting to a place of sobriety is not easy. It can help to receive gender-based treatment aimed at issues that primarily affect your sex.
