Substance use and misuse are widespread across the U.S. As the decades pass, women make up an increasing percentage of those Americans who drink or take drugs. However, men continue to use most substances at a higher rate than women.

Men often have gender-specific reasons for their drug or alcohol consumption. And when enrolled in treatment for diagnosable substance problems, they often face gender-related barriers to timely recovery. These facts hold true in cities and towns of all sizes, including Fort Collins, Colorado.

To make the most of their rehab efforts, men may need specialized programs designed with such gender-based concerns in mind. At Healing Pines Recovery, we specialize in these kinds of programs. With help from our in-house experts, you can devise a customized treatment plan that takes your personal background and gender into account. As a result, you may gain the extra advantage you need to successfully break free of addictive substance use.

How Addiction Impacts Fort Collins, CO

Research shows that serious drug and alcohol problems are more common in Colorado than in most U.S. states. Roughly one in every 10 Coloradans aged 12 or older has a diagnosable substance use disorder (SUD) involving:

  • Two or more symptoms of clinical addiction
  • Two or more symptoms of non-addicted, life-disrupting drug or alcohol abuse
  • At least two total symptoms drawn from both of these categories

The region of the state that includes Fort Collins is heavily affected by alcohol-related SUDs. It’s also notable for relatively high levels of marijuana and cocaine use. 

Like much of Colorado, the Fort Collins area is seriously impacted by major depression, America’s most prevalent mental health condition. However, it’s only moderately affected by other kinds of mental illnesses. That includes most illnesses significant enough to cause major life dysfunction.

The Impact of Addiction

How Substance Abuse Impacts Men

The chances of developing a SUD are roughly the same for men and women who use drugs or drink alcohol. However, there is a significant gender imbalance in substance use. Specifically, men are more likely to use and misuse alcohol and most kinds of drugs. For this reason, men:

  • Have greater risks for physical substance dependence, a major warning sign for future clinical addiction
  • Need emergency help for substance-related problems more often than women
  • Die from overdoses at a higher rate than women

Generally speaking, it takes longer for men to develop SUDs than it does for women. However, prolonged drug or alcohol misuse creates serious risks for substance abuse/addiction in adults of both genders.

Dual-Diagnosis Treatment in Fort Collins

There is a well-established association between SUDs and mental illnesses that don’t stem from substance misuse. This fact accounts for the common need for treatment of dual diagnosis, a condition that includes:

  • At least one drug- or alcohol-related SUD
  • One or more mental illnesses not solely triggered by drinking or taking drugs

Studies indicate that men don’t develop serious mental illnesses as often as women. As a result, men may be less susceptible to the onset of dual diagnosis.

Challenges Men Face in Treatment

No matter who you are, you can expect to face significant challenges when you enroll in alcohol or drug rehab in Fort Collins. However, the nature of these challenges tends to vary from person to person. In some ways, it also varies according to your gender. What are the most common gender-related issues among men seeking help for substance problems? The list of these widespread concerns includes:

  • A relative inability to identify emotions and understand the difference between emotional states
  • Subsequent difficulties expressing emotions in healthy ways
  • Feelings of shame that can inhibit active participation in the process of substance treatment
  • Stereotyped beliefs about the ways men behave and express themselves

In addition, significant numbers of men in rehab have a history of committing acts of sexual violence.

The leadership and staff were committed to my success.

Paul is a man of integrity which flows through his team. I have been to other recovery programs and HPR stands far above them all. The small group structure offers a more intimate and personalized experience. This was so much more beneficial to my recovery than facilities preaching a "one-size-fits-all" solution to larger and fragmented groups. It was like having personal and knowledgeable therapists dedicated to me for a full month! They went out of their way to understand the root of my challenges and construct a path for improvement that is unique and relatable to me. This was a huge benefit!

It saved my life, in every sense.

I spent a month at Healing Pines Recovery. The actual location itself is unreal. A beautiful cabin lodge, with gorgeous scenery. The rooms are large, queen beds, very comfortable! Great bathrooms with great showers! There is a pool table, slam jam, (Christine! 😉 frisbee golf, and daily access to a nearby gym. The property also has a pickle ball court that was used daily, Zoey the counselor beat us men constantly!

Clay M

My experience with Healing Pines Recovery has been wonderful.

My husband was their client, and they helped him be able to help himself. He is doing amazing! I think the combination of counseling, physical labor, meditation, AA, and just the beauty of the place itself all had a very positive impact on him. They really cared about him, and that did not stop just because he came home. Also they have counseling for the families and it has really helped me a lot. Heather is awesome! I thank God that we had them in our lives when we were most vulnerable.

Susan M

We wanted to share our gratitude to the staff.

Our son was under the care of Healing Pines recently and we wanted to share our gratitude to the staff. There were many challenges in his pursuing treatment, and thankfully Paul and Heather C helped us navigate all of them skillfully with patience and compassion.

You'll get your life back!

Healing Pines Recovery is/was instrumental in setting me up for long term success in my recovery journey. I've been to treatment centers in the past and HPR is nothing like anything I've attended before. They're very small, intimate, and hands-on approach to recovery was exactly what I was looking for when seeking treatment. I knew that a large, one size fits all program like those offered by many other treatment centers in Colorado wouldn't provide me with the help I desperately needed. Paul and his Team are incredible and I would highly recommend HPR to anyone who needs help starting their recovery journey. Big shout out to James for all of his guidance during my time at HPR. His grace, knowledge, understanding, and direction were/are key to my continued success in recovery. One HUGE piece of the puzzle I love is the after care I've received from HPR... I am in constant contact with Paul, James, and many other staff members through the their alumni programs and it has helped me so much with life after HPR. This program was truly a miracle in my life and I know it will be for many other men struggling with addiction and/or alcoholism. You'll get your life back!

This is truly a great recovery facility.

My learning experience here was something I’ll take with me throughout my whole life. The staff here will always be a part of my family and I am beyond thankful for everything they have done and continue to do for my well-being.

Gunnar P

I can't speak more highly of Healing Pines Recovery & Addiction Center.

It is located in a beautiful Colorado location with lots of outdoor activities and fresh air. They have a very knowledgeable and professional staff that goes above and beyond to meet your needs.

Riley K

I couldn’t have been at a more amazing place to begin this journey.

Seriously an amazing place. Everything from how beautiful the house and the property it sits on down to every person staffed there was nothing less than perfect. More than highly recommended in every sense. If you’re reading this and trying to find the right place for treatment and recovery I would absolutely look no further. Everyone’s recovery is different and we all need a comfortable place with people we can trust through this battle, healing pines understood that everyone’s path is different and they 100% cater to that. I couldn’t have been any luckier with finding Healing Pines. I won’t go any deeper and start to thank everyone there individually, But I want to express my gratitude to everyone on the HEALING PINES TEAM. Without you all, my path in sobriety would not look anywhere near the way it looks today. Seriously from the bottom of my heart thank you!

The Treatment Modalities Offered at Our Fort Collins Rehab Center

How does a Fort Collins drug rehab help men overcome SUDs and dual diagnosis? In some respects, the recovery process is the same for both men and women. For example, adults of both genders need to start rehab in a detox program if they have symptoms of clinical addiction. Following detox, you’ll start an active treatment plan designed to help you recover from the specific problems affecting you. Common elements in this kind of plan include such things as:

A gender-specific program for men will feature additional treatment options. Many of these options are holistic. In other words, they help you make general improvements in your well-being that, in turn, support your recovery. Examples in this category include:

  • Yoga
  • Equine therapy
  • Meditation

The daily environment of a men-only program can also be therapeutic. That’s true because, without women present, many men:  

  • Feel more inclined to talk openly and honestly
  • Find it easier to break free from social taboos about how men should behave
  • Have an easier time focusing their attention on the demands of substance recovery
