California’s exclusively LGBTQ treatment center LGBTQ people are nearly 30% more likely than members of the general population to suffer from addiction. The LGBTQ population are 60% more likely to relapse following addiction treatment in traditional recovery programs. The same trauma that the LGBTQ community faces in everyday life - the trauma that lurks beneath the addiction - is replicated in traditional treatment because traditional treatment is a microcosm of the world at large. LGBTQ-specific treatment transforms the dangerous environment clients face every day and gives them the safety to work through their shame and create connections and community. That’s why we need LGBTQ-specific treatment, not only for drug/alcohol addiction, but for all substance and behavior addictions. At Pride Recovery Los Angeles, we’re here to address shame and build pride. Addiction Treatment for our LGBTQ Community. Covered by most insurance programs
