Men in Recovery

Happy Farmers

There are some issues that many men struggle with, but are even more common among men who struggle with addiction. Often, it is important to resolve these issues to ensure recovery. If these issues go unaddressed, it may be difficult for recovery to properly occur.


Men in Recovery addresses many of these issues over 18 sessions with a designated group and professional facilitator. The four modules discuss four of the most important areas addiction can affect: the Self, Relationships, Sexuality, and Spirituality. These areas can also serve as triggers for relapse, and are often the areas of the most dramatic change in both addiction and recovery. Men in Recovery covers many topics, including:

  • Identity
  • Self-Awareness

  • Relaxation techniques

  • Communication

  • Inherent vs. constructed norms

  • Impact of family and other relationships

  • Barriers to relationships

  • Healthy relationships

  • Trauma and abuse

  • The impact of mood-altering substances

  • Healthy sexuality

  • Consent

  • Spirituality vs. religion

  • Power and privilege in society

  • Creating a vision

  • Reflection



Men in Recovery is not a module in our Residential Recovery Program, but a unique program that is used to complement it. Men in Recovery is not offered to the general public by Our House.
