Fighting drug addiction is always difficult. Especially it’s challenging for people from the LGBTQ+ community. There are different factors that push them to substance abuse (you can take a look at them in the infographic created by AddictionResource).
Additionally, when talking about addiction treatment, bisexuals, lesbians, gays, transgenders, and non-binary people have different needs compared to straight people. Traditional drug rehabs may not be comfortable enough or may not provide all the necessary psychological help. That is why the LGBTQ+ community always has to spend more time looking for a proper rehab.
LGBTQ+ rehab facilities offer various treatments that are designed to address the specific problems of this community. For example, they may teach patients how to deal with discrimination in the workplace, how to handle being misgendered, or how to go through rejection from family members without resorting to the numbing effects of alcohol and drugs.
