Why LGBTQ-Specific Treatment Matters

Under the best of circumstances, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (LGBTQ) people are “accepted” or “included” or “allowed.” In other words, LGBTQ people are outsiders everywhere they go. Unlike members of other minority communities, queer folk aren’t even guaranteed inclusion in their own families. To live with this burden day in and day out is to live with a traumatic injury, a traumatic injury that many treat with things like alcohol, drugs, food, shopping, and the compulsive pursuit of sex and love.

Traditional treatment populations mirror those found in the larger culture, exposing LGBTQ people to the same relational trauma that brought them into treatment in the first place. To cope, queer people use old broken coping skills, sometimes reinforcing their trauma instead of healing it. It’s no wonder that many LGBTQ people often relapse, sometimes even before treatment is finished.

LGBTQ-Affirmative addiction treatment addresses the relational wounding associated with being LGBTQ while delivering evidence-based addiction treatment to serve the whole queer person.

At Pride Recovery LA | EGI, we provide a challenging but safe environment where LGBTQ people can find freedom from addiction. In addition to providing evidence-based treatment that includes addiction psychoeducation, relapse prevention work, mindfulness training, CBT/DBT skills practice and life skills coaching, Pride offers something unique: whole-person, strength-based trauma treatment that addresses the relational wounding associated with being LGBTQ.

Our program integrates traditional addiction treatment, trauma work and LGBTQ-Affirmative psycho-education, allowing clients to create authentic selves who are not only free from substances, but better prepared to embrace full, happy, LGBTQ lives.
