Gender-Separate Addiction ProgramAddressing Different Challenges of Addicted Men & Women
As a faith-based addiction treatment center, Stonegate Center, located in Azle, Texas, acknowledges scripture in the therapeutic philosophy and doctrine of our services. It is important for us to recognize the value of every person who seeks treatment at Stongate Center. In so doing, we must acknowledge their unique value as a woman or as a man. Scripture teaches us that although men and women have equal worth and value they also have distinct and complementary traits and characteristics. In the throws of addiction and recovery, these complementary traits and characteristics become more of distraction and barrier in the healing process. More often than not, men will typically process their thoughts and feelings very differently than how women will. Meaning, men typically struggle to identify feelings associated with their experiences. Women, on the other hand are often extremely sensitive to their emotional status related to their experiences.
Separate Facilities for Men & Women
Often the attitudes of men toward women are not healthy, and the same should be said for women toward men. Many women and men who come into treatment have suffered abuse in different ways (emotional, sexual, physical and spiritual, etc..), often at the hands of a person of the opposite sex, so they require a safe place to process as they heal. This process is very different for each gender. Therefore, it is not advantageous, but in our spiritual and therapeutic opinion, it is detrimental to combine the two genders in treatment. Men and women alike typically struggle with relational issues as being a significant part of their addiction. It is a challenge address this comodulating issues as is, and less likely to address such issues in gender mixed environments.
Safe & Healthy Environments
Men and women alike typically struggle with relational issues as being a significant part of their addiction. It is a challenge address this comodulating issues as is, and less likely to address such issues in gender mixed environments. Included in the cause for gender separate centers, is the obvious potential for sexual tension to occur. This is a major distraction and barrier to treatment. In our belief that the solution to addiction lies within spiritual health, healthy sexual behavior happens as a result of healthy spiritual position. When a person, man or woman, tries to combine recovery with relationship, one or both will suffer. When one of the two fails, it is typically sobriety, not the relationship. The relationship grows into significant toxicity. Sexual abstinence is proven to be beneficial in early stages of recovery. It is an unnecessary challenge and distraction to tempt and/or allow treatment clients in this way.
Due to the nature and need to express extreme vulnerability in treatment, it is simply not a healthy practice for men and women to receive treatment in the same facility, in the same program under the same roof. The style, technique and nature of how men and women process through their struggle of addiction, require that they each have a safe and healthy environment that only a gender-separate treatment center can provide.
12-Step Program at Stonegate Center
As a Christian-based recovery center, we’ve incorporated the 12-step principles into our treatment programs because they address the mind, body, and spirit. We educate our clients about the 12 steps and then encourage clients to act on them. This active commitment to a 12-step recovery program is the foundation of our treatment philosophy.
We offer 12-step support groups at both of our men’s and women’s facilities. These groups are led by a Recovery Advocate team of people who have recovered from their addictions and work one-on-one with clients to support and guide them. Through this mentorship and the fellowship established with their peers, clients can build meaningful relationships and a sense of self-awareness that will help them as they move forward on their recovery journey.
