The Men’s Resource Center’s Substance Abuse support group teaches the basics of addiction, relapse prevention, and recovery. It helps men break out of shame, addictive patterns, and isolation.
In spite of increased awareness and education, men continue to turn to substances as ways to cope with the difficulties of life. Many use alcohol and drugs in an attempt to feel happier, more alive, and socially adept. These substances can eventually end up replacing the intimacy and passion the men are looking for.
