Atlanta LGBTQ Drug and Alcohol Rehab
Addiction is a disease that doesn’t spare anyone, and for some, it is even worse than for others. This means that people need access to a quality rehab facility now more than ever, including one that is tailored to their particular section of the community. In the case of the LGBTQ community, they face even more challenges when it comes to addiction than most. Because of some of these unique challenges, addiction rates can be higher, and access to care is much lower, leading to a serious problem with long-term addiction and relapse.
At Atlanta Recovery Place, a Georgia addiction recovery center, we know that certain groups have a more challenging time dealing with addiction than others, and our staff has worked hard to put together programs to help these people and groups get the treatment they need in a safe and calm environment surrounded by compassionate professionals and people like them. We have staff trained to deal with these unique issues and understand the problems that addiction can cause to an already disenfranchised community.
Not only do those in the LGBTQ community face increased risk factors for drug and alcohol abuse, when factoring in outside factors, but they are also many times higher than the national average in substance use disorders for both drugs and alcohol. They are also less likely to seek help because of social stigma and other outlying factors that impact a person’s willingness to seek help.

What Sorts of Issues Do LGBTQ People Face With Addiction?
There are several reasons why the struggle with addiction is so much worse for anyone that identifies as part of the LGBTQ community.
Firstly, people in the community face higher rates of harassment and violence due to their sexual preferences or way of life. This makes them more likely to develop a substance use disorder of some kind. This is compounded by the fact that in many communities, those that are LGBTQ are in the minority, meaning they are outnumbered by those that wish them harm or who are intolerant of their lifestyles. This makes it harder to get help.
Second, even if an LGBTQ person were to want to seek help, they would then be ridiculed and ostracized for being an addict, which could then make them not want to get help and could worsen their addiction. When faced with stress and external pressure, people with addiction are more likely to continue using because of that stress, and if they are in recovery, they are more likely to relapse. This is part of the reason that treatment and continued support are necessary to break the addiction cycle many people fall into.
One final issue that people in the LGBTQ community face when it comes to addiction is a lack of available treatment options specifically for the community. When you face criticism, violence, and social stigma, it can make it that much harder to accept going to rehab, and when you have no options for your section of the community, it is a major deterrent to getting help. Atlanta Recovery Place is the home for people in the LGBTQ community to get the help they need in and around Atlanta. We are a premier LGBTQ addiction treatment in Georgia, and we are here so that nobody is left out when it comes to getting help with their addiction, no matter how serious their addiction may be or the struggles that they have dealt with along the way.

How LGBTQ Drug Rehab in
Georgia Can Help
A Georgia LGBTQ treatment center is the best place for anyone in the community that is struggling with addiction. There is no way to conquer addiction without treatment, and trying to quit cold turkey or on your own can actually be very harmful. In fact, some people have suffered severe physical complications due to withdrawal, including death. Having a facility that has a program specifically for the LGBTQ community can drastically improve the success rates of those who go through treatment and improve overall outcomes.
Atlanta LGBTQ drug and alcohol rehab is also a great place for those struggling with addiction to make connections and learn how to cope with their addiction from other people in similar situations without feeling the stigma of society. Rehab can become a safe place to learn about the reasons behind their addiction and how to deal with them and all similar situations. Learning the causes behind your addiction and how to cope is one of the key skills in dealing with an addiction and staying sober long-term. In short, those that don’t learn why they are addicted in the first place are much more likely to repeat the cycle and continue to drink or use drugs.
One final way that an Atlanta LGBTQ drug and alcohol rehab can help is by offering support after treatment ends. All sorts of programs can aid in the recovery process, including sober living homes, educational opportunities, work programs, 12-step programs, and even family and peer support groups that can help the client through the transition. Taking advantage of these groups can make the process of staying sober a bit easier and make it more likely that a person will be able to return to a normal life without a relapse.
