Addiction is not discerning—it can happen to anyone, at any point in their life. Addiction does not discriminate–it affects people no matter socioeconomic class, race, gender, age, education, job, religion, or financial standing.
Despite this, one fact is the same: addiction doesn’t quietly go away. It needs to be met head-on with a treatment plan developed between clinically-trained professionals and the person with an alcohol/ substance use disorder.
Someone in recovery needs an advocate working on their behalf so they know they are not alone in this struggle. Your active participation will open the door to Vertava Health of Texas resources and tools to start a new way of life with tailored treatment. Everyone says recovery is tough for a reason, but so are you.
Men’s Drug Rehab Program
We are committed to offering expert and evidence-based care so that you or your loved one can get back on your feet toward a better life.
We help you achieve program success with a full assessment that will recognize better where you are at in your life presently and what goals you had or still have. We understand that every person comes to us with a unique and specific set of needs, and to deliver the most effective and thorough treatment, we must adapt our treatment protocol continuously to offer individualized treatment. It is by doing this—by recognizing where you are at in your life—that we garner our high level of success.
Vertava Health of Texas offers many standout treatments and modalities, and even can target specific needs for genders, offering separate rehab programs for men and women, with shared campus facilities.
Men’s Rehab Should Be Individualized
It’s widely accepted that men and women might have different approaches opening themselves up emotionally, socially, spiritually, physically, and mentally under any circumstances.
The importance is more pronounced because the stakes are higher to successfully build a recovery program centered around your life betterment. You may find that in a therapeutic environment of same-sex gender.
Perhaps you feel some of the male stereotypical pressure to be the breadwinner and struggle to get by with your paycheck. Maybe your spouse makes more and you agreed to stay home with the younger children, but now feel remorse and no way out of the situation.
Perhaps you have a military background or work as a first responder and struggle with your experiences. Maybe you never established life outside your parents’ home and feel like a failure. Perhaps you look like you have it all on the outside with a nice car and house, but feel empty inside.
Drug and alcohol addiction takes a heavy toll on a man’s life. Whatever your ambitions or responsibilities—family, school, vocational, or professional—you may have seen them cave under the weight of your addiction.
Your sense of self-respect, self-esteem, and honor may be fleeting, as you begin to define your worth by the failures that your addiction has imposed on you. Instead of feeling happy and balanced, you may increasingly feel miserable or inadequate, as if falling short of expectations.
Many people further turn to alcohol or drugs as a means to squash these feelings, a very dangerous and counterproductive behavior.
You may have different backgrounds, but you all have the same stories where it counts though. Your life paths brought you to an incredible alcohol/drug treatment center with excellent programs to empower you to a road to recovery with long-term success.

Detox Under Our Expert Care at Our Rehab Center
The first step within rehab is detoxing under expert medical supervision and our compassionate care team with the highest regard for your physical health.
Drugs and alcohol pollute your body, damaging critical systems within the brain and other organs. After prolonged substance abuse, the body becomes accustomed to this influx of toxic substances and begins, essentially, to rely on them. When a person stops using, they will encounter withdrawal symptoms.
Depending on the drug of use, these symptoms can be exceedingly uncomfortable, and at times even dangerous. In some cases, such as with alcohol withdrawal, a person’s life may be in jeopardy requiring medical supervision for safety. It is for this reason that we never recommend that a person attempt to detox on their own at home before committing to treatment. A successful detox is essential to finding sobriety and building a solid recovery.
Detox is also a vulnerable time when many people get overwhelmed by cravings and other intolerable symptoms, often turning to drugs or alcohol to avoid further experiencing this pain and discomfort.
Being involved in a medically supervised detox helps you to avoid this risk, as our attentive staff will monitor you 24/7 to ensure that you are comfortable and supported during this time. In certain cases, our physician-led clinicians may deem medication-assisted therapies the best avenue of treatment to help alleviate or ease your withdrawal symptoms.
Recover From Addiction By Balancing Your Mind
Drugs and alcohol can change the very way that your brain operates by altering the functioning and production of vital chemical components within your brain called neurotransmitters. Restoring your body to wellness by a medically managed detox, and removing the toxic load of the drug, allows your body and brain to begin to heal so that it can begin to function more fully and efficiently.
Beyond this, you need support in other ways. As we’ve noted, an addiction may be rooted in negative emotions or mindsets; it may also stem from damaging behaviors or thought patterns. For these reasons, we need to get to the source. At Vertava Health of Texas, we offer numerous impactful and research-proven therapeutic methods that can help us to better understand you.
- Motivational interviewing
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy
- Dialectical behavioral therapy
- Mindfulness and stress management practices
These methods aid you in replacing the negative and detrimental elements of your addiction with positive thoughts and behaviors, all the while developing critical coping skills.
Men’s Treatment For Co-Occurring Disorders
Many times, a person begins using a substance due to their struggle with another disorder. This is referred to as a co-occurring disorder. These dual diagnosis conditions must then be adjunctly treated, to restore optimal balance and wellness. Additionally, to truly succeed within their recovery and be the most prepared against relapse, a person must combat these concerns before they leave treatment. If left untreated, one condition may exacerbate the other.
Examples of co-occurring disorders include (but are not limited to) depression, anxiety, trauma, eating disorders, or dual addictions. Many times, as a person experiences the toll of one disorder, they may seek to temper its effects by self-medicating, which may then lead to or further a current addiction. Hence the importance of treating both. The mind and body are interconnected. For one to truly be healthy and balanced, the other must be as well.

Use Men’s Rehab To Get Mentally/ Physically Strong

Supporting You Within Your Recovery at a Men’s Drug Rehab
Sobriety is only the first step. Living a drug-free life is not a static endeavor, rather it requires constant diligence and maintenance. We understand this, and we also know that the time directly following treatment can be tough. It is for this reason that we offer you or your loved one of our comprehensive aftercare services.
Don’t go it alone. Vertava Health of Texas mentors will reach out to you, at minimum two times a month, to keep you accountable and focused. This care extends beyond you. If you wish, we can also integrate your family into this outreach, so that they can become better adept at supporting you within your recovery.
It is important to stay active within your recovery and develop camaraderie. We can help make this happen by connecting you to our online recovery meetings, peer fellowship programs, other people who have successfully maintained their recovery for the long-term, a sponsor, or other individuals such as yourself who have found victory and completed the Vertava Health of Texas program.

Why Should I Choose a Men’s Rehab Center?
Some can find it hard to be open emotionally about their deepest fears, feelings of failure, or actions they have taken during their substance use. They can also get distracted from their main focus of addiction rehab. This treatment opportunity should be given every chance to be fully successful, with no possible hindrances to making a hard journey even more difficult. Treatment is giving you a second chance you can’t afford to take chances with.
What Are The Benefits of Gender-Specific Drug Rehab?
You cannot approach treatment without keeping ongoing recovery in mind. The people you are in therapy with and hike with and cry for and give to them as much as they give to you will feel like family at the end. You can be part of each other’s recovery network. You also need to keep your focus and avoid distractions during this time you have carved out for your full recovery.
What Are The Stages Of a Men’s Rehab?
In general, they are the same for men and women but differ slightly in approach.
You may need to first complete a detox program to prepare you physically for the therapies to come during treatment. An assessment to determine your treatment plan needs and possible desires to pursue some alternative therapies will be completed. Your time will be mixed to include group and individual therapies, and potentially family therapy. We offer a range of programs for professionals that still need to complete work responsibilities to adventure and equine therapies in outdoor settings and a more rigorous wilderness program. Consideration of good nutrition to nurture the body toward healing is also incorporated; aftercare programs are established before discharge.
