Gender-Specific Addiction Treatment Program

Having a separate treatment program for each gender leads to better outcomes and allows a focus on issues that are unique to each.

Gender Specific 2

We focus on issues that are unique to each gender.

Gender specific addiction treatment, where men and women are treated in separate groups, is far more effective at helping people recover from substance abuse disorders, addictions and mental health problems. Studies show that having a separate treatment program for each of the sexes leads to better outcomes and allows a focus on issues that are unique to each gender. Men and women have different histories, body compositions, and physiologies. They suffer different consequences due to their addictions. Having two separate treatment tracks allows clients to focus more intently on their individual recovery. GateHouse Treatment’s gender specific addiction treatment programs were designed to offer clients best-in-class treatment. Each track has the same core focus: to lead both men and women out of the pains of addiction into lasting recovery.

Men’s Program

When it comes to substance abuse/addiction, comparative studies have shown that drug addiction is FAR more common among men than women. Men start using drugs at an earlier age. Men abuse drugs more often, and in larger amounts. They are more likely to abuse alcohol than women and tend to engage in binge drinking at a higher rate. Close to 12% of American males age 12 and over currently use illegal drugs, compared with just 7.3% of females in the same age group. Multi-drug use is also more common in males than females.

GateHouse Treatment’s men’s program is designed to help men seeking recovery from substance use disorders. A focus on highly personalized and proven treatment approaches coupled with accountability and interaction with our compassionate staff enables clients to achieve sobriety success.

The Men’s Program consists of:
• Men’s Partial Hospitalization Program
• Men’s Intensive Outpatient Program
• Affiliated Men’s Sober Living & Halfway House
• Specific Therapies & Programming for Issues Unique to Men
• Men’s Family Program

For men who are prepared to overcome their addictions, we offer a personal approach to sobriety that is based on proven addiction treatment methodologies.

Women’s Program

When women develop substance use disorders, research indicates they tend to develop them faster than men. In addition, they report problems of greater severity and experience more health-related consequences, such as mental illness and other physical problems. However, women are more likely than men to encounter barriers that prevent them from seeking or following through with treatment. These include economic obstacles and family responsibilities. It’s also important to note that anxiety or depressive disorders, which tend to be more prevalent and severe among women, may prevent them from seeking help with addiction. The professionals at GateHouse are aware of these issues and have the programs and experience to help female clients overcome these barriers so they can get on the road to recovery.

Our Women’s Program consists of:

• Women’s Partial Hospitalization Program
• Women’s Intensive Outpatient Program
• Affiliated Women’s Sober Living & Halfway House
• Specific Therapies & Programming for Issues Unique to Women
• Women’s Family Program
