Gay Drug Rehab Treatment with Monarch Shores

If you are a part of the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Trans-gendered (LGBTQ) community and suffering from drug addiction, you are not alone. Research has shown LGBTQ members suffer from significantly higher rates of substance abuse than heterosexuals. The reasons for this are generally related to the bullying that LGBTQ individuals receive, and the social stigma surrounding the LGBTQ community. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) says that LGBTQ youth is twice as likely to be bullied than heterosexuals. The results of bullying can be devastating and permanently affect someone’s life, and many LGBTQ youth are prone to this kind of negative experience.

What Does Drug Addiction Look Like in the LGBTQ Community?

Members of the LGBTQ community often resort to drugs to cope with problems. For this reason, there is usually a communication gap with loved ones.

According to recent research, here are some mental issues that are common in the LGBTQ community:

  • Major depression
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Abuse abuse disorder
  • Substance abuse
  • Suicidal thoughts

When you go to drug rehab in Southern California you will realize it was the best decision you have made for recovery. Many rehabs do not address the particular needs of the LGBTQ community and are not prepared to counsel them. For this reason, you should consider LGBTQ addiction treatment in California with Monarch Shores. Our experienced counselors will customize your treatment plan to address your unique issues, and help you to feel welcome and at home.

What to Consider When Choosing a Gay Drug Rehab Center

We understand that some people would prefer to attend an exclusive gay drug rehab center in California. If you cannot make it to Monarch Shores for your treatment, then consider these factors when choosing a gay drug rehab.

Does the rehab address all members of the LGBTQ community, or just specific parts?

Some rehabs only cater to specific segments, such as gay men rehab only or lesbian only, etc. You can decide if you’d like to be with all LGBTQ members, or smaller, more specific groups.

Which treatment options are available to you?

Some programs offer only certain treatments. When you call us at Monarch Shores, you will hear about the numerous drug treatment options we offer.

Does the rehab offer aftercare?

Most rehabs should offer some sort of aftercare program for their patients. Outpatient programs to serve as a transitional stage from rehab back into society are usually a popular aftercare choice. Some LGBTQ members may require specialized aftercare plans.
