If you are a part of the LGBTQ community and are suffering from drug addiction, you are not alone. Research has shown LGBTQ members have 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 are more likely to suffer from, bullying, depression, substance abuse and suicide as compared to 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. Because of the negative social stigma and fearing what family and friends will think, many suppress their emotions about being gay and avoid coming out, they may begin taking drugs or drinking because of this as well.
Here are some mental issues that are common in the LGBTQ community:
- Major depression
- Anxiety disorders
- Substance abuse disorder
- 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 friendly 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. We will also provide solutions to staying sober along with tools and resources in your community for you to utilize when you end your gay drug rehab experience.
Our transgender clients can get one on one time with experienced counselors and therapist to discuss and begin to work on their issues.
What to Consider When Choosing a Gay Drug Rehab Center
- Does the rehab address all members of the LGBTQ community, or just specific parts?
- Do the educational and personal therapy sessions discuss LGBT issues as they relate to addiction?
- Is this facility an exclusive gay drug rehab?
- Is the facility accredited and have a track record of implementing safe detox procedures?
- Which treatment options are available to you?
- 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.
