At California Prime Recovery we offer gender specific addiction treatment which allows for comfortable treatment without distractions, and an increased focus on gender-specific issues which may be overlooked otherwise. 

Addiction and the process of recovery is different in men for several reasons.

Are you hesitating to seek help?

Many men feel vulnerable to open up emotionally, and to expose their pain. In cases where men experience sexual abuse, emotional trauma, or gender abnormalities, they may be unwilling or afraid to seek help. Although the number of men who turn to substance abuse is far higher than women, there are not many addiction treatment centers that cater to men.

At California Prime Recovery, we understand the unique needs of men in treatment. When men are in peer groups where they share similar challenges, they are more comfortable in confiding and accepting help. 

Our expert care team will develop your individualized recovery plan based on factors that uniquely affect men, such as: 

Supportive Addiction Treatment for Men

Our addiction treatment programs for men provide a safe, supportive place for you to explore issues as you participate in:

Individual Counseling

Traditional talk therapy has been shown to be highly effective for treatment of addiction in men to help process negative beliefs and thought patterns that trigger substance abuse. At California Prime, we use evidence-based therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and others to help support talk therapy.

Group Counseling

Being part of a peer group sharing similar challenges is the biggest success factor in group counseling for addiction treatment. At California Prime you can choose to be part of men-only group counseling that may be a more comfortable environment for accepting help.

Support Programs

In addition to counseling, education and peer activities, we also offer support groups such as 12-step programs and non-12-step programs that can help expand your peer network community who can support you in your recovery.

Gender-Specific Facilities

We maintain separate lodging for men and women at our addiction treatment centers. We work with gender specific sober living options, so that residents can stay in a stress free and supportive environment, while leaning on each other on their individual journeys.

At California Prime Recovery, we provide more than just a place to stay sober. We offer a strong sober living community where our residents can transition into a successful long-term recovery, while receiving support and guidance on their journey.

All of the houses are fully furnished, and offer everything you need to feel as stress-free as possible while being away from home.

Stephen Carmel

Founder & CEO

I began my journey to recovery back in 2011 when I moved to California from New York.Along wiht my recovery and beginning a new way of life,I began to develop a heart for others struffling with sobriety.My journey to California was filled with many trials and lessons learned, but most of all, personal growht.I truly believe i would not have found success if I didn’t come to California.I started CPR as a way to work with people in recovery on a daily basis and it evolved into something much more beautiful. I have also come to realize that my own personal happiness and recovery depends on being involved in the lives of people in recovery. Helping others recover is a cornerstone of many 12 step programs, as it is here. Giving back to those still suffering, is the only way not to lose what you have gained. It is the paradox that we live by every day.
