Men, Substance Problems, and Mental Health

Any adult may drink or use a legal or illegal drug. In addition, any adult may eventually develop problems as a result of their habitual substance use. However, as a man, you likely drink more often and in larger amounts than most women. You also have higher odds of using marijuana, stronger drugs like heroin, and most addictive medications. 

Given these facts, you might assume that men have more significant risks for substance abuse and addiction than women. However, the odds of developing a substance use disorder (SUD) are essentially the same for both groups. Despite this reality, SUDs in men differ from those in women in one key respect. Namely, they’re more likely to include clinical addiction indicators such as:

  • An established dependence on drugs or alcohol
  • Loss of control over your urges to keep obtaining and using alcohol or drugs
  • Disregard for the social and personal harm you experience while temporarily satisfying these urges

Substance use disorder meets the modern definition of a mental health condition. It frequently occurs simultaneously with other kinds of these conditions. Men’s risks for such additional mental health issues are generally lower than women’s. But it’s important to note that:

  • Even when they have the same mental illness, men and women can experience different symptoms
  • Men with mental health issues commit suicide more often than women

In other words, even though they’re less common in men, co-occurring mental illnesses can lead to severe outcomes.

Common Difficulties for Men in Drug and Alcohol Treatment

Men in need of alcohol or drug rehab in Parker and elsewhere tend to face certain difficulties in recovery. These difficulties have a variety of potential sources. But, more often than not, they’re rooted in American culture’s common ideas about men and masculinity. Our cultural definitions of masculinity may make it harder for you even to consider seeking treatment. That’s true because they can:

  • Trigger discomfort with any situation that requires you to seek help from others
  • Leads to a hostile attitude toward the concepts of formal treatment

And once you enter rehab, you may find it harder to work with your recovery team than the average woman. 

During treatment, one of the most important things you can do is express yourself openly and honestly. However, this concept can clash with your lifelong cultural training as a man. As a result, you may have a notable tendency to do things such as:

  • Fail to talk about yourself, your thoughts, or your feelings
  • Omit information that could be helpful to your recovery
  • Act as if you’re unaffected by any emotion that makes you feel weak or vulnerable
  • Highlight these kinds of emotions in others, even as you deny their impact on you
  • Use anger as a more culturally acceptable substitute for ‘unmanly’ emotions

You may also feel highly ashamed of yourself. Shame has its place as an applicable emotional state. However, excessive levels of it can cause you to:

  • Treat specific recovery topics as out of bounds, even to you
  • Emotionally withdraw from the treatment process instead of embracing it and using it to your benefit
  • Knowingly or unknowingly bring yourself closer to a drug or alcohol relapse

Some men in substance treatment also deal with another legacy of cultural masculinity. Namely, they encounter problems with aggression or violence while in rehab. Aggressive behavior never works to your benefit when trying to recover from substance problems. That’s even more true for overtly violent behavior.

Healing Pines’ treatment specialists are experienced with the problems that can impact you as a man in recovery. Without fail, we take an understanding, compassionate view of these problems. We also work with you to defuse them and help you participate fully in addiction treatment at Parker. Want to know more about how we can support you or your loved one? Talk to us today.

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!
