Men face a variety of factors that render them vulnerable to substance use disorder, and these issues need to be addressed in treatment as part of their rehab and recovery. Between enduring issues of stigma surrounding masculinity, the pressure to fit into certain roles, the pressure to be the traditional providers, potential pain issues associated with a higher involvement in physical jobs and manual labor, there are many situations in which men can find themselves needing to self-medicate with drugs or alcohol. If you or your loved one are a man struggling with substance abuse or addiction, you don’t have to be ashamed to ask for help.
How Common Is Substance in Men?
Data from the National Institute on Drug Abuse indicates that men are generally more likely to experience substance use disorder (SUD) than women. and illicit drug use is more likely to result in emergency department visits or overdose deaths for men than for women. Men and women generally respond to drugs differently and use them differently, as well. This includes every type of drug, from alcohol to cocaine to opioids and even prescription stimulants. Rehab for men must address the unique psychological issues that drive gender-specific substance abuse and what measures can be taken to manage them in everyday life.
