Addiction can happen to anyone regardless of age, race, or socioeconomic status. However, substance abuse is more prevalent among certain groups in society, specifically the LGBTQ community. If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction, the first step in recovery is to seek professional help. Finding the right rehab program for you is critical for achieving and maintaining long-term recovery.
Members of the LGBTQ community may be hesitant to seek treatment for fear of judgment or discrimination, but there are many treatment options available to help them. At Northpoint Nebraska, we provide an LGBTQ rehab program to ensure all our patients receive the help and treatment they need to heal safely and successfully. Contact us at 402.698.3475 for more information.
What Is an LGBTQ Rehab Program?
An LGBTQ rehab program provides treatment specifically for members of the LGBTQ community. Instances of substance abuse are higher among this social group of people. Those who identify as LGBTQ face different circumstances and hardships that can increase their risk of addiction. To cope with these challenges, individuals may self-medicate with drugs or alcohol. However, this only decreases a person’s mental health and can lead to addiction. Some of the challenges specific to LGBTQ individuals that can increase their risk of addiction are:
- Discrimination or prejudice because of their sexual orientation
- Rejection or shame from friends and family members for coming out
- Internalized homophobia
- Loss of employment or promotions because of sexual orientation
- Lack of access to comprehensive medical care and LGBTQ support services
- Hate crimes, emotional abuse, or public humiliation
An LGBTQ rehab program understands the specific hardships LGBTQ individuals face and how they likely contributed to their substance abuse. At Northpoint Nebraska, we provide comprehensive treatment and a safe environment for all our patients, regardless of their race, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. Patients work with our staff to overcome the physical, mental, and emotional side effects of addiction. Our holistic approach to treatment and recovery helps our patients heal fully.
What to Expect From an LGBTQ Addiction Rehab Program
While substance abuse is more common among members of the LGBTQ community, they also have a higher chance of struggling with a mental health condition. At an LGBTQ addiction rehab program, patients have access to various treatment and therapy programs to help them heal and understand the underlying factors that contributed to their addiction. At Northpoint Nebraska, we take an integrated approach to addiction and mental health conditions, where we attack them from all angles.
