The notion of healing from addiction by going it alone speaks to a key difference between how men and women may process addiction struggles. By and large, our mainstream culture expects men to be tough, self-sufficient, and capable of handling things independently. They are expected to be more stoic and less emotional. When strong feelings and struggles arise, men are less prone to reach out for help or allow themselves to be vulnerable. As such, the pressure can build. Not used to asking for input or support, a man struggling with addiction often internalizes his trauma.
In a men’s addiction treatment program, therapists address a myriad of issues:
