Drug addiction is a huge problem in today’s society, it does not discriminate. Addiction is a problem regardless of race, region, or social status. It tears families apart, ravishes cities, and has recently been declared a state of emergency across the entire nation.
For those who self-identify as homosexual, transgendered, bisexual or anyone else in the LGBT community, addiction rates have been higher than the average for a number of years according to the American Psychological Association.
Many of those in the LGBTQ community have experienced discrimination at one point or another in their lives. It is important that a treatment program for addiction is specialized to the client’s specific needs, for those who self-identify as LGBTQ there are many issues they deal with during the rehabilitation process and after that need a truly individualized care plan.
Specific issues that are addressed in LGBTQ drug rehabilitation treatment may include:
