Addiction in the LGBTQ community

Historically, members of the LGBTQ community have been met with judgment and poor treatment when seeking help. While treatment providers are taking an active approach to change this experience, this history is a barrier that keeps individuals of the LGBTQ community from asking for help when they are struggling.

the substance abuse rates

Substance Abuse Rates in the LGBTQ Community

A 2018 version of the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSUDH) showed that individuals of the LGBTQ community had a higher rate of substance use concerns, compared to heterosexual adults. Additionally, when members of the LGBTQ community reached out for help for an addiction, they presented with higher severity of their symptoms than heterosexual adults. 

Knowing that the rates of substance use are higher among LGBTQ individuals, brought attention to the need to provide quality and accessible care for struggling individuals. Thus, came the development of specialized treatment for LGBTQ individuals within various levels of addiction treatment programs.

Why Are Mental Health and Addiction Problems Common in the LGBTQ Community?

Individuals within the LGBTQ community are at a higher risk of experiencing discrimination, harassment, and violence than other members of the population. These experiences can contribute to the development of mental health concerns, including anxiety, depression, and trauma-related concerns. While drugs and alcohol are not healthy coping skills, they can be used to numb emotional discomfort. Individuals who use substances to cope with distress and lack other coping skills are at an increased risk of developing an addiction.

Mental health concerns can result from a combination of factors, including genetics and environment. If individuals have family members who are living with mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder, they may be more likely to develop similar concerns themselves. 

Individuals who have a history of trauma, abuse, and neglect from their childhood may also find themselves at an increased risk for mental health concerns. As children, we learn how to cope with distress from the adults around us. If we are surrounded by adults who lack healthy and appropriate coping skills, it is harder for us to learn how to regulate our own emotions. 

If you are in need of a Laguna Beach LGBTQ drug and alcohol rehab center, we encourage you to call (866) 932-3206 to speak with a Laguna View Detox representative. Our luxury Laguna drug rehab offers breathtaking views and sought-after amenities. We provide individualized, holistic care that addresses all the areas of your life that were impacted by your substance use. To learn more about how we can support you in your recovery, call (866) 932-3206 today.

the benefits

What Are the Benefits of LGBTQ-Specific Treatment?

Specialized treatment programs can only strengthen a person’s recovery. Specialized treatment options are often available for men, women, Veterans, college students, and the LGBTQ community.

LGBTQ-specific treatment can help decrease isolation behaviors that members may be engaging in, and help them connect with other individuals within the LGBTQ community. Specialized groups can provide a safe and welcoming environment for individuals to talk about concerns that they may not be comfortable sharing in a traditional group setting. 

Individuals within the LGBTQ community may find themselves experiencing similar concerns about their recovery. This can include having healthy social support and coping with emotional distress. Group sessions allow members to talk about where they have found healthy supports and other behaviors that have helped them in the past. 

An additional benefit of specialized groups is validation. Individuals who are isolated, and those who have limited support, may feel as though they are alone. Some may even feel that what they feel or think isn’t accurate. Specialized groups allow group members to listen to each other’s experiences, and relate in ways that others may not be able to do.

we are here for you

Laguna View Detox is an LGBTQ Rehab Center in Laguna Beach

Laguna View Detox offers LGBTQ addiction treatment in Laguna Beach, CA. As a luxury addiction treatment center, our facility has breathtaking views and sought-after amenities. We use a combination of traditional treatment approaches, including group therapy, individual therapy, and education sessions, along with alternative therapy options. 

Our alternative therapy options include relapse prevention education, life skills practice, anger management education, whole body health, art therapy, music therapy, yoga, and meditation. Our staff will meet with you to determine which of our treatment options would benefit you.

Detoxification is a commonly needed step before going into a residential inpatient program. Detoxification can be an uncomfortable and sometimes painful process that can limit a person’s ability to actively engage in various forms of addiction treatment. Laguna View Detox’s detoxification program focuses on relieving your discomfort and supporting you during this challenging experience. 

Our residential inpatient treatment program is customized for every individual we work with. Your time with us can range from 30 to 120 days, depending on your treatment needs. Individuals who need dual-diagnosis care may find themselves in treatment longer than those who are not due to added treatment sessions. Our goal is to provide you with the support and knowledge needed to return home for a healthy recovery. 

If you or a loved one are a member of the LGBTQ community and have been struggling with drugs or alcohol, we encourage you to contact Laguna View Detox at (866) 932-3206. Our experienced staff will meet you with the kindness, compassion, and encouragement you need to start your recovery on the right foot.
