Compared to the general population, the rates of substance use disorders and mental health disorders among the LGBTQ+ community are significantly higher. A significant reason for this is that those who identify as LGBTQ+ have experienced greater discrimination and social and family challenges than their heterosexual counterparts. Open bias causes many people to avoid seeking the help they need from what has been a predominantly heterosexual treatment environment. At Harmony Hills, we believe everyone deserves equal access to treatment. To learn more about Harmony Hills’ inclusive addiction treatment center, contact us at 855.494.0357.
Because of long-standing stigmas, finding an addiction treatment center that addresses the specific needs of those in the LGBTQ+ community has been challenging. In recent years the general shift in perceptions about people who identify as LGBTQ has helped create a more accepting society, making it easier for those who identify as LGBTQ+ to feel more safe seeking the treatment they need. Today, addiction treatment programs throughout the country are developing programs specifically designed for the LGBTQ+ community.
Individuals who identify as LGBTQ have frequently experienced discrimination on many personal and public levels. They face obstacles that the heterosexual and cisgender populations often cannot understand. Many turn to drug and alcohol use to escape from their emotional and psychological pain.
Everyone who decides to seek treatment for addiction and mental health issues experiences feelings of fear and vulnerability. Those in the LGBTQ+ community can experience these feelings deeper because they generally have suffered significantly higher stress levels across multiple areas of life. For these individuals, choosing an addiction treatment center sensitive to the unique needs of those who identify as LGBTQ+ is crucial.
