When addressing de-addiction, it is very necessary that we focus on gender and sexual orientation-specific treatments. Drug abuse and addiction are common across all people, but when it comes to treatments most hospitals and recovery centers provide a common set of remedies for all people. But this is wrong.
Men, women, and transgenders have different reasons to use drugs. Their bodies adapt and respond to the drugs differently too.
The Cause for Addiction in Different Gender Varies
It is widely believed that men succumb to drugs due to increased stress in their lives. By that logic, women should be more prone to drugs too, right? These misconceptions about drug abuse are preventing society from looking into the issue more closely.
Men, women, and transgenders have different reasons to use different drugs. It could be because of their lifestyles, their age, their jobs, etc. It also depends on their locality, living conditions, and much more.
Some problems might be common among all genders and hence, easily addressable. While others, not so much. Even the drugs being used vary among genders, for example, men are more likely to go for marijuana and alcohol use, whereas women are more likely than men to abuse prescription drugs.
Addiction Treatment Should Have a Conducive & Judgement-Free Environment
What we need to accept is the fact that addiction treatment should be done in a judgment-free environment, free from all the psychological abuses the person may go through. This is important because no matter what reason the person had to use the drugs; they must have bias-free opportunities to come out of them.
Also necessary are gender-specific treatments for men, women, and transgenders so that they feel comfortable while going through the treatment process.
Also, men, women, and transgenders have very different attitudes toward pursuing treatment for drug abuse. While men are over-confident about controlling their drug use, women don’t like to disclose it at all. Transgenders, on the other hand, are afraid of the social pressure they face while getting de-addiction treatments.
Customized Treatment Provides Quick & Lasting Impact
Providing customized & gender-specific treatments for all three genders is the way forward in de-addiction. This way it becomes possible for treatment providers to focus on the patient’s problems more effectively and remediate them with ease.
With customized treatments for individuals, psychiatrists can resolve the issue that first forced them into drug abuse. It has a long-lasting impact on the patients too.
