TIP 56: Addressing the Specific Needs of Men

This course will identify the physical, psychological, social, and spiritual effects of substance use and abuse on men that can be quite different from the effects on women. Those differences have implications for treatment in behavioral health settings. Men are also affected by social and cultural forces in different ways than women, and physical differences between the genders influence substance use and recovery as well. This course provides practical information based on available evidence and clinical experience that can help counselors more effectively treat men with substance use disorders.
