The addiction experts at our parent facility Sober Living by the Sea created The Landing. Sober Living by the Sea has been treating both men and women who suffer from alcoholism and drug addiction right on the beach in Orange County, California for over over 25 years.
The Landing was created to provide an exclusive, private, and structured drug rehab right on the beach for alcoholic or chemically dependent men to get the best possible chance at achieving long-term recovery.
Giving Men the Best Chance at Successful Recovery
Most people who have researched recovery programs are aware that there is a strong positive correlation between time spent in a treatment program and achieving long-term sobriety(for more information about the extended treatment options at The Landing, read our page about long term rehab).
Another statistic that the addiction industry has documented is the positive relationship between attending a gender-specific primary care program and the likelihood of long-term abstinence.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse and Addiction, men and women with substance abuse problems require different prevention and treatment approaches.
Highly Structured, Highly Monitored, Highly Effective
At The Landing of Newport Beach, our addiction treatment experts have created a highly structured and supervised environment in a welcoming and comfortable home right on the beach. The men who are participating in The Landing’s addiction treatment program will find themselves in a friendly and enjoyable vacation-like environment while they are receiving state-of-the-art addiction treatment on a constant basis.
Recovering in a men’s only program provides the recovering alcoholic or addict the benefit of working together and forging caring bonds of accountability and support with other recovering men. The men can focus on their recovery for 30, 60, or 90 days and build an excellent foundation that will help them overcome the urge to relapse when they graduate to less supervised care in our extended care, transitional work, or outpatient programs.
Men Experience Addiction and Alcoholism Differently
Research suggests that men and women experience drug and alcohol addiction differently. Not only do they have different biological responses and co-morbid factors, but they also have separate reasons for turning to drugs and alcohol in the first place.
Men Have Different Societal Pressures
Men are often struggling with anger management or defiance, whereas women often bring trauma or social issues to their recovery process. Separating men and women during the initial stage of primary addiction treatment helps the different genders deal with their issues head-on, without any distractions or uneasiness. The all-male staff at The Landing also lends itself to the treatment of other men because they have all experienced recovery from alcoholism or drug addiction in their past.
Gender-specific treatment process groups also help patients discuss highly sensitive and personal issues that are unique to their gender. Men benefit from being able to form a cohesive social network with other recovering males. In men-only groups, men can concentrate on their recovery process without worrying about social approval and the impression they may be making on others. They feel safe to discuss topics and memories that are uncomfortable to disclose in a co-ed group.
Given a variety of social factors in addition to these biological and social differences, men and women often fare best in gender-specific recovery programs.
