Men’s Addiction Treatment
Your tolerance builds with long-term addiction, meaning that you constantly have to do more and more to feel a pleasurable high. Because you are always seeking that satisfying feeling, it can lead to you trying more potent drugs or using a more dangerous route of administration. When you live with an addiction, it’s essential to find help that offers safe and private places to heal. Getting Men’s Addiction Treatment at our Brazos Valley rehab center is the best way to improve your recovery chances.
Nearly 23 million Americans ages 12 and older struggle with a substance use disorder. An even more shocking statistic? Drug overdoses are now the leading cause of death among Americans under the age of 50. The risk of overdosing is exceptionally high if you use heroin or inject your drug of choice. Illicit heroin supplies are cut with dangerous additives like fentanyl, a powerful narcotic that is stronger than morphine and heroin.
How Does Addiction Impact You?
Addiction is a powerful and progressive mental health disease that forces you to compulsively abuse a substance, even when you have a strong desire to quit. When you use drugs, your brain associates the substance with pleasure. This rewires your brain chemistry as your pleasure and reward center releases a pleasurable surge of neurotransmitters whenever you use them. A sudden depletion of pleasurable neurotransmitters causes the comedown effect you experience when using.
Long-term drug use causes severe imbalances in the neurotransmitters in your brain. If you have an underlying mental health disorder, your symptoms can quickly worsen. When your mental health symptoms worsen, you compensate by increasing your drug use. This causes the vicious cycle of addiction to continue. That’s why it’s imperative to receive help if you have a co-occurring condition because if you don’t treat both, you won’t be able to recover from either.

At Promises Brazos Valley, we offer Inpatient addiction treatment programs that typically last for at least 28 days. Depending on your diagnostic assessment, you may need to attend our detox program, making it easier to withdraw and begin recovery. Our residential programs allow men and women safe spaces to be vulnerable, with mix-gendered group meetings. Our gender-specific living quarters enable men of the same age range to get better together by building lasting bonds even after treatment ends.
Both inpatient and outpatient programs combine evidence-based and holistic therapies. Evidence-based addiction treatment programs are proven to work following extensive research and subsequent recoveries.

Evidence-based therapies also help you:
- Create and practice healthy coping strategies
- Improve your communication and problem-solving skills
- Decrease feelings of isolation and guilt
- Address prior trauma
- Rebuild damaged relationships
Holistic therapies, like meditation and yoga, seek to treat your body, mind and spirit. Holistic therapies are safe and effective ways to decrease stress, improve cognition and promote relaxation. At Promises Brazos Valley, we aim to heal the “whole person” by combining both evidence-based therapies and holistic approaches. This way, you can effectively work through your addiction while building a solid personal foundation for a healthy life.
