According to studies, men are less likely than women to get help for substance use disorders. Men are less likely to admit something’s wrong or consider they may have a problem. When compared to women, men tend to seek out treatment less and are also less likely to get help. Many men find it “unmanly” to seek out mental health treatment of any kind. This line of thinking can foment a potentially fatal overdose.
