Drug Rehab for Men in Lancaster, CA


Studies have shown that separating sexes during addiction treatment increases the chances of successful recovery. Design for Change Recovery believes it’s important to give men their separate space in order to achieve full recovery without distraction.

Men’s Addiction Treatment Program

If people are distracted by the opposite sex, they cannot focus on getting healthy. This is why we provide specialized men’s addiction treatment with a gender-specific focus. Taking the first step into sobriety is the most important step anyone must take in order to achieve a substance-free life, so distractions are counterproductive. Early sobriety is difficult, and confusing, so adding a new relationship is an unnecessary obstacle. Clients need to focus on themselves, not worry about building and maintaining a relationship.

Why Gender-Specific Rehab Is Effective

Men and women are biologically different. Men have different ways their bodies’ process drugs and alcohol, and different reasons they started using in the first place.

Typically, men have more difficulties expressing themselves because our society tells them if they cry, or show feelings, they are not “manly” men. Many times they are told, “boys don’t cry” or “man up.” These sayings crush the ability for men to grow and express themselves emotionally.

Our men’s addiction treatment program gives you or your loved one a safe space to express yourself free from judgment. Our clients form camaraderie with each other and form supportive friendships. They can relate to each other because all of them are walking a similar path.

Why our Men’s Addiction Treatment Program Is Successful

Men are free to be emotional, and do not feel embarrassed, ashamed, or guilty when they have a safe space to share their stories and learn about themselves. At our rehab center, men learn about:

  • Roles
  • Emotions
  • Communication
  • Boundaries
  • Self-Love
  • Self-Care
  • Relationships, etc.

Our clients are free to male-bond in a non-competitive setting at our affordable drug rehab for men. They don’t need to show off, or compete with each other. They can share feelings without worrying about women’s opinions of them. Design for Change Recovery is a place to grow, learn, and gain tools to live a life free from addiction. They can completely focus on recovery in the following areas:

  • 12 Steps (We also offer “non 12 step” alternatives)
  • Counseling/Therapy
  • Coping Strategies
  • Triggers
  • Stressors
  • Learning about themselves
  • Boundaries
  • Meditation, etc.

Men’s Addiction Treatment with a Dual Diagnosis Focus

Many patients come into treatment with addiction paired with mental illness, also known as a dual diagnosis disorder or a co-occurring condition. Many of our clients suffer from some the following mental illnesses:

  • Bi-Polar
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Personality Disorders, etc.

In our men’s group counseling sessions, there are no more than 6 men per counselor, which is rare in other addiction treatment facilities. Because we have smaller, intimate settings, men can get to know each other faster, create trust more quickly, and form close friendships with others in recovery.

Our qualified therapists, counselors, physicians, and psychologists are available for every client that we treat. Our facility is located in Lancaster, CA, which is easily accessible for residents of the Antelope Valley area.
