LGBTQ Drug Addiction Treatment
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.

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.
