Gender Specific Treatment

Gender-Specific 12-Step Treatment in Tennessee

English Mountain Recovery is one of few residential treatment facilities offering gender-specific programs. Tucked away from the chaos of life, we provide a serene location where men and women of all ages embark upon the challenging but redeeming work of addiction recovery.

The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) notes that there are significant differences between men and women regarding substance choice and how the brain responds. Studies also indicate that women and men have differing reasons for relapse and different addiction risk factors. Our gender-specific model offers unique treatment distinctions that address these issues.

Advantages of Gender-Specific Treatment

  • Gender-specific treatment minimizes sexual tension and distractions between male and female clients.
  • EMR’s single-gender program allows our staff to deal sensitively with gender-unique physiological, emotional, and relational issues.
  • Single-gender therapy takes into account differing family roles and external social and professional pressures.
  • Women who have endured trauma may be especially uncomfortable sharing their experiences around men. During English Mountain Recovery’s gender-specific therapy sessions, clients feel supported and empowered by their same-sex peers.
  • Bonding behaviors tend to be stronger in gender-sensitive groups since clients are more likely to share personal information.
