There are different expectations of society from men, which does not accept men as a victim. Men only treatment groups will eliminate those expectations and will accept the reality.

For many addicts, a male only environment will be much safer and friendlier, and hence it will be more inclined to create a better trust and bonding as well.
3. Sharing your experiences among your own gender
In many aspects of their life men will feel more comfortable to share about their experiences with some other men rather than women, which can also help in their treatment and recovery.
