EXTENDED CARE FOR YOUNG ADULTS IN THE HEART OF AUSTIN
Gender Specific Program
Why gender specific?
Studies have repeatedly shown that gender specific environments are more effective for those in early recovery. At Spearhead Lodge, we seek to limit the distractions of our residents by providing an gender specific environment.
Men in Recovery
Young men face very specific issues in treatment which often go unaddressed. We bring up these issues of what it means to be man in recovery early in the process. The gender specific environment allows for the men to be vulnerable with their peers, which is nearly impossible in a co-ed environment. Additionally, the community driven aspect of the program allows the men to form a community and learn to rely on each other.
