In the book Game Plan, authors Alan Lynme, David Powell, and Stephen Andrew, discuss gender-specific treatment for men. Although gender-separate treatment has been around for decades, the idea of gender-specific treatment modalities for men and women has "come of age" in the last few years. Works like the Seeking Safety model for trauma care, and authors such as Stephanie Covington, have highlighted issues for women in treatment, especially those in addiction recovery. However, men's issues in treatment is a relatively unexplored topic. A basic premise is that when working with men, in recovery from addiction, it is wise to "come in the back door" when addressing feelings. Back door approaches can include different methods for screening and assessment, addressing key male issues related to emotions, sexuality, work, money, parenting, etc. Game Plan provides different approaches in treatment men, such as motivational enhancement therapy, 12 step programs, and the use of a wide range of treatment resources: homework, non-competitive games and activities, videowork, bibliotherapy, art as a therapeutic tool, questionnaires, and poetry.
