Addiction Recovery for Men
Did you know that men are twice as likely as women to meet the criteria for drug addiction at some point in their lifetime? According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, not only is the previous statement true, but men also abuse alcohol at a rate that is three times higher than women.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, 40 to 60 percent of drug addicts will relapse from their plan of treatment, so a commitment to a sober house is essential to ensuring the success of addiction recovery for men. By living in a gender specific sober house, it allows men to focus on their recovery with fellow peers going through the same situation. It provides a support community all within the same home, so that men who are going through recovery can help each other and create a stable foundation for their addiction recovery journey.
Boca House for Men offers a safe and stable environment where men going through addiction recovery can focus on the success of their new sober lifestyle. While here, each person will have access to numerous addiction treatment services, as well as establish a strong structure for daily sober living. One of the most important aspects of addiction recovery is readjusting to doing normal things; such as: showing up to appointments on time or holding a stable job.
Successful addiction recovery hinges on being in the right environment, conducive to a sober and healthy lifestyle. Treatment and detox are just the beginning steps to a life of sobriety – creating a life in recovery takes much more time and patience. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, some of the most common triggers for a relapse in men are: stress, reminders of past experiences with substance abuse (such as certain people, places and things), and exposure to drugs. Because of this, Boca House for Men makes sure to provide a stress-free environment, catered to the success of each patient’s addiction recovery.
At Boca House, addiction therapy for men is aimed at fostering a new attitude towards drug use, as well as teaching the necessary coping mechanisms and basic life skills needed to successfully handle stressful situations in a healthy and positive way.
