Find out how our LGBTQ+ friendly drug and alcohol rehab centers help people of all kind achieve their recovery goals.
LGBTQ-Friendly Addiction Treatment Center
LGBT is an initialism that stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender. Nowadays, LGBTQ+ incorporated all LGBTQ populations including people who identify as queer, questioning intersex, asexual, and more.
As an LGBTQ+ friendly facility, we welcome patients regardless of their identity—our clinical focus on community-building, trauma therapy, family, and relationship counseling. Additionally, peer support offers a treatment modality that addresses the unique needs of this community.
In addition to providing a safe space for therapy and case management to navigate the various social and resource needs of this community, we offer access to diverse community support groups. Transportation to LGBTQ+ focused twelve-step meetings can be facilitated through the staff. We are proud to say that we maintain a community with zero tolerance for discrimination, violence, or bullying.
Rehab Programs Available
LGBTQ+ patients are often struggling with mental health issues along with their substance use disorders. Their path to recovery from substance abuse and addiction often looks different than others. For example, transgender individuals might need specific health treatment to monitor and manage their transition. A comprehensive treatment center will consider these things.
Most drug and alcohol addiction recovery journeys start with detox. Because many of these substances cause physical and mental withdrawal symptoms, it’s paramount to have medical assistance and support to do so with comfort. Choosing to detox at a treatment facility also prevents relapse.
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)
Those who stop alcohol or opioids may need a medication-assisted program to start their rehab journey. Various FDA-approved medications help reduce cravings and lessen the dependence on these highly addictive drugs. However, keep in mind that MAT alone isn’t enough to treat addiction. It needs to be paired with supportive services and therapy to help the recovery process.
Substance abuse treatment incorporates individual therapy and group therapy sessions throughout the treatment. Both use a combination of different behavioral therapies. Overall, the most common one is cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). Others include motivational interviewing (MI), contingency management (CM), and other behavioral therapy forms that address addiction’s many variables.
Finally, most people with a substance abuse problem also have a co-occurring mental health condition. Anxiety, depression, psychosis, and personality disorders all co-occur with substance abuse. Dual diagnosis programs treat these conditions simultaneously to promote a better and prolonged recovery.
With addiction on family members, rebuilding trust doesn’t happen overnight. Most addicts need assistance in figuring out how to talk to their family members. We believe in integrating family therapy sessions to help rebuild the trust, rebuild connections, and regain the family unit. Through family therapy, we can slowly work on family dynamics, support the recovering addict, make amends, and continue to work together as a family.
Aftercare Recovery Programs
Unfortunately, addiction isn’t a trip to rehab, and you’re done. It’s a long-life journey. Because of the nature of the addiction disease, relapse is bound to happen unless you have the right support system by your side. Joining aftercare treatment programs that include 12-step group meetings, life skills development programs, and more will help addicts work towards long-term sobriety.
