Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning
The unique issues and needs of the LGBTQ individual are frequently not addressed as a part of a traditional rehab program. Because of this, many addiction treatment programs have been developed to focus on this community.
This is especially important because studies show that members of the LGBTQ community are more likely to use drugs and alcohol, have higher levels of abuse, are less likely to abstain from use, and more likely to continue use into later life than their heterosexual counterparts.
