Atlanta's Best Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) Drug and Alcohol Rehab
There are many factors that contribute to the prevalence of Addiction in the LGBTQ communities. LGBTQ drug and alcohol rehab programs are rare, because we are still viewed as people dealing with an “alternative lifestyle”. Alcohol and drug abuse among gays and lesbians, bisexual and transgender individuals has been ignored and blamed on their sexuality. As LGBTQ substance abuse specialists we are at the forefront of helping individuals. We witness how our own people don’t receive equal treatment.
O.U.T at A Better Life Treatment
Although many recovery centers claim that they include LGBTQ addiction and treatment sensitivity training in their curriculum, we know real life experience and a real life journey into recovery from drugs and alcohol give us an excellent world view an understanding as to what it takes to recover.
Benefits of Choosing a Gay-Friendly Treatment Center
LGBTQ clients bring a host of unique personal factors with them into LGBTQ (gay) drug and alcohol rehab. The shame, guilt, lies and most of all the false perceptions and beliefs must be addressed as core issues prior to dealing with any self-medicating or substance abuse issues. Our LGBTQ therapists and counselors are in recovery and know how to incorporate specifically tailored treatment techniques based on some of these distinctions.
