Addiction Recovery Support
According to reports, about 25% of the LGBTQ population has at least a moderate alcohol use disorder, along with other substance abuse challenges. By comparison, about 10% of the general population struggles with alcoholism. This speaks volume about systemic challenges people in the LGBQT community face. Additionally, some subgroups within the LGBTQ community experience even higher rates of alcohol abuse. Fortunately, as awareness grows about the effects of alcohol abuse on LGBTQ individuals, more rehab facilities are dedicating resources to supporting the LGBTQ community.
Finding the right school is important for every prospective student, but those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, or queer (LGBTQ) face further challenges when choosing a college. In addition to obstacles that all students face, like researching different majors and obtaining financial aid, students who are LGBTQ benefit from finding a school that is accepting of their identity and supportive of their unique needs.
LGBTQ+ and Addiction: Causes, Resources and Treatment
Substance use disorders have a greater effect on LGBTQ+ people than on the heterosexual population. The LGBTQ+ community must overcome several obstacles, including being denied substance abuse treatment because of their sexual identity. However, through the proper understanding and accommodation of LGBTQ+ care principles, substance abuse treatment can be successful.
