HATTIESBURG, Miss (PRWEB) June 05, 2018
Pine Grove Behavioral Health & Addiction Services, one of the nation’s most comprehensive treatment campuses is proud to announce the addition of A Few Good Men: Celebrating Men in Recovery to its Next Step treatment curriculum. Pine Grove has a long tradition of treating men with chemical addiction at its Next Step program. Recently, Pine Grove further enhanced its treatment at Next Step by specifically focusing on the care of young men ages 18-39 years old. Because Next Step solely focuses on healing emerging adult men with chemical addiction, Pine Grove’s clinical team expanded its treatment group for younger patients within Next Step and called this initiative, A FEW GOOD MEN: Celebrating Men in Recovery.
A FEW GOOD MEN: Celebrating Men in Recovery focuses on the issues specific to young men in treatment with a different topic being addressed weekly with daily group therapy sessions. Dr. Leah Claire Bennett, Pine Grove’s Clinical Operations Director said, “A FEW GOOD MEN: Celebrating Men in Recovery works to challenge male stereotypes that can foster control, dominance and the suppression of emotions, to a more open view of masculinity that allows men to express themselves openly, show courage and love deeply.” Pine Grove’s Next Step patients discuss daily who they want to be in recovery and learn to celebrate this transformation. The weekly topics addressed within Next Step’s A FEW GOOD MEN: Celebrating Men in Recovery program include Masculinity, Male Role Models, Male Privilege, Power and Control, Men as Husbands and Partners, Fatherhood and Male Sexuality, to name a few of the twelve total topics.
Pine Grove’s Next Step program also treats dual diagnosis, trauma and mood disorders. Next Step includes residential level addiction treatment as well as a step down partial hospitalization program for patients based on the clinical decisions of the treatment team.
