Providing a structured, 3-Step therapeutic environment with a mind, body, spirit emphasis, Canaan Valley Farm offers gender-specific treatment for young men struggling with alcohol or drug use disorders. Our single-gender program is designed to recognize and meet the unique physical, emotional, and psychological needs of our male clients while encouraging clients to be vulnerable and open with peers, therapists, and treatment specialists
When it comes to addiction risk factors and therapeutic needs, men and women are not the same. Drug and alcohol addiction manifests itself uniquely in the lives of male clients, and the Canaan Valley Farm team provides a gender-specific environment where young men can be vulnerable and truthful with their housemates and therapists.
Our staff is trained to work with each gender separately, and our gender-informed program provides a targeted treatment that helps men develop unity and address a variety of issues:

In addition, male therapy participants find it easier to be fully open about anger, trauma, depression, and other addiction symptoms.
CVF’s male-specific rehab schedule includes a variety of holistic programming options:
