LGBTQ Addiction Treatment

LGBTQ Addiction Treatment at Banyan Pompano

Unfortunately, being a member of the LGBTQ community can also come with some negativity from people who simply do not understand. When that negativity becomes too much to bear, it is not uncommon for people to turn to the misleading draw of drugs and alcohol.


The Connection Between LGBTQ and Addiction

The LGBTQ community, in particular, has long struggled with substance abuse problems at a higher rate than their heterosexual counterparts. They tend to have a higher frequency of substance abuse disorders, drinking, smoking, and mental health problems.1 Untreated, these bad practices can even be fatal.

Addiction Rehab for the LGTBQ Community

When looking for heroin addiction treatment, you shouldn’t have to worry about discrimination. Taking steps to stop drinking shouldn’t be accompanied with prejudices about who you are dating. Finding a gay-friendly addiction treatment center that is not only accepting of the LGBTQ community but also willing to go above and beyond to make its patients feel comfortable can be difficult. Luckily at Banyan Pompano, we offer LGBTQ addiction treatment that takes the needs, comfort, and desires of members of this community to heart.


Gay-Friendly Housing for Rehab

For many members of the LGBTQ community, housing can be an area of concern. For our partial hospitalization program in Florida, we understand that the gender on your birth certificate may not match your gender identity. For transgender patients, this dilemma can be daunting and may prevent some people from getting the help they need. While other rehabs may force you to room with the gender on your birth certificate, we offer special housing accommodations that allow patients to choose to live in sober living facilities with other people who match their presented gender. By doing this, we hope to make our patients feel as comfortable as possible. Patients will also be able to focus on more important things like beating their addiction and moving forward.


Unique Therapies for the LGBTQ Community

Addiction rehab for the gay community should take into account the extra considerations that the members of this community face on a regular basis. Often their substance abuse problems may be rooted in mental health issues that stem from feelings of being rejected or discrimination against them because of gender identity and who they love.

At Banyan Pompano, we understand that in order for patients to enjoy long-term success in recovery, all of these issues should be addressed. Because of this, our LGBTQ addiction treatment includes dual diagnosis treatment and a variety of unique therapies with experienced professionals who are trained to tackle such concerns. Patients will work in both group and one-on-one settings with a therapist as they try to overcome their problems. They will also have the opportunity to partake in programs like SMART recovery, yoga, and biofeedback. We do our best to pair patients with our own staff members in the LGBTQ community in order to promote better understanding and a greater feeling of trust during the recovery process


At Banyan Pompano, we understand that there are a lot of worries in your life but finding an addiction rehab for the LGBTQ community that will accept you and make you feel comfortable shouldn’t be one of them.
