Men's Drug Rehab


Specialized Treatment for Men

Addiction is often described as a chronic and progressive health concern. This means that while a person continues to use drugs and alcohol, the consequences that they experience will worsen as time goes on. Areas of your life that can be impacted by your substance use include your mental health, physical health, relationships, career, finances, and legal concerns. The consequences of addiction look different for everyone, so you may not feel as though you can relate to the experiences of others.


These differences can be more pronounced when we look at men and women. There are undeniable biological and social differences between the progress of addiction and recovery for men and women. Because of these differences, addiction professionals have seen that providing specialized treatment options, such as a men’s rehab program, can increase clinical gains by addressing concerns that may not arise in other aspects of counseling.


Marina Harbor Detox has a men’s rehab program in San Francisco, CA. We work with individuals who struggle with a variety of substances, including alcohol, cocaine, amphetamines, benzodiazepines, opioids, prescription medications, and meth. Marina Harbor Detox offers medical detox in San Francisco. Contact us today to learn more about our California holistic addiction therapy options.

Men Addiction Statistics

Research has shown that men are more likely to use most illicit drugs when compared to women. Additionally, men are more likely to need medical attention from an emergency department because of their use, including overdoses. 


An estimated  22% of males have misused illicit drugs or prescription medications within the last year. Trends have shown that drug use has the highest prevalence among adults who are between the ages of 18 and 25.  


A 2011 report produced by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration reported that the most commonly abused substances by males include:

  • Alcohol
  • Marijuana 
  • Heroin
  • Prescription opioids
  • Cocaine
  • Methamphetamine and amphetamines


Marina Harbor Detox is a rehab for men that provides private accommodations, including a bath. This can provide you with comfort and privacy as your body adjusts to the natural changes that occur during the early stages of recovery. 

How Does Substance Abuse Impact Men Differently?

One of the differences between men and women is that men typically need to consume more alcohol to reach the same euphoric effects as women. This is the result of biological differences, including the higher percentage of body fat women have compared to men.


Men tend to experience higher amounts of peer pressure regarding drinking and drug use at a younger age than women do, which can influence the length of time that men have been misusing and abusing substances. We also know that men tend to abuse substances for a longer period of time before developing a substance use disorder than women. 


Another difference to be mindful of is the social expectations that are often placed on men regarding their vulnerability and expression of emotions. Men can feel pressured to stay composed and not express their emotions. If men do not allow themselves the opportunity to cope with their emotions, they can compound and contribute to even more mental health distress. Substances can easily be used to cope with emotional distress; however, it does nothing to get to the root of the concern. Rather, they tend to worsen the overall level of distress being experienced.

What Are the Benefits of a Men's Rehab Program?

Men’s rehab programs may vary for different treatment providers. Typically, specialized treatment programs are used in addition to traditional treatment options and can include group therapy, individual therapy, and educational sessions. 


When men have the opportunity to participate in a men’s rehab program, they will have a unique experience that can provide them with support that they would not have received otherwise. Men may find that they are uncomfortable talking about some of their challenges and concerns in a group with women, so gender-specific treatment settings can create a safe place where men are more likely to open up and discuss concerns that impact their addiction and recovery. 


These groups also provide an opportunity to receive validation and support from other men regarding stressors and challenges. Addiction is an isolating disease, which tends to have individuals feeling as though no one can understand or relate to their experience. Similarly, being able to provide support and encouragement to others can be a rewarding experience that has a powerful impact on your recovery.
