Men's Group Q & A
What are men's groups?
Men's groups are somewhere men can get the support they need to help them succeed in overcoming addictions.
Addiction is a multi-layered issue that also affects the user’s families and friends, often leading to relationship difficulties. While the addiction can rob you of the people closest to you, recovery requires positive and supportive people to help you through.
Men's groups allow you to form new relationships with people who understand your addictions. You can share your innermost feelings and thoughts in a safe space and become part of a small community of men you can rely on.
The substance use disorder treatment programs at Victory Recovery Partners facilitate the formation of men’s groups so you can share problems and experiences that people who haven’t undergone addiction recovery can’t understand.
Why are there separate men's groups?
Victory Recovery Partners offers separate men's and women's groups to enable people of either sex to feel more comfortable in a group situation.
Some men might find it hard to be open about their feelings or the things they've done because of their addiction when they're with women. The challenges men and women face when they have substance use disorders can differ as well, so men might feel women wouldn't understand their experiences and vice versa.
There are also certain differences in how men deal with addiction and the recovery process. Men are more prone to addictions, and their substance use is more likely to result from social and peer pressures. Men also tend to experience more intense effects when undergoing alcohol withdrawal.
Because there are so many differences in men's experiences, processes, and responses regarding addiction recovery, they often find men's groups give them a unique kind of support.
What part do men's groups play in the recovery process?
Men's groups form one part of Victory Recovery Partners' extensive recovery programs. Behavioral therapy and counseling in combination with prescription medication form the basis of your rehabilitation program. You can also benefit from participating in a range of support groups, including 12 step programs.
These outlets are a way for you to find the tools you need to make a long-lasting recovery. There's no one-size-fits-all approach at Victory Recovery Partners because everyone is different. The key is to find the types of support and help that are most beneficial to you. For many men, men's groups are one of their lifelines.
