I have never been a co-ed program in rehab. I have been in a men's program in my first trip to rehab.

I believe that having same sex rehab makes it easier for addicts/alcoholics to discuss gender-specific issues related to their addiction and also prevents relationships. Addicts and alcoholics in very early recovery also do not have the social skills to form new intimate relationships with opposite sex and co-ed rehab makes it easy to form these relationship with people being together for a 30 day periods.
