LGBTQ Rehab Addiction Treatment for the Gay Community

Recovery Unplugged fully understands the unique obstacles that members of the LGBTQ community face in their daily lives and how they can often lead to addiction. We're ready to help you or your loved one take your life back, and achieve peace of mind and balanced mental health.


Even in the United States, a nation that has made significant strides toward sexual-identity equality, there remains significant obstacles to full acceptance. These systemic and person-to-person barriers have led to comparatively high rates among many members of this community. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) National Survey on Drug Use and Mental Health Indicates that members of the LGBTQ community:

  • Are at increased risk for various behavioral health issues
  • Have higher rates of substance misuse and substance use disorders (SUDs) than people who identify as heterosexual
  • Are more than twice as likely as heterosexual adults to have used any illicit drug in the past year
  • Used marijuana at higher rates than the heterosexual population
  • Misused prescription painkillers at higher rates than the heterosexual population

Additional data from the US Census Bureau found that a higher percentage of LGBT adults between 18 and 64 reported past-year binge drinking than heterosexual adults. LGBT people in treatment for substance use disorder initiated alcohol consumption earlier than their heterosexual counterparts.

Recovery Unplugged is mindful of the stressors that lead LGBTQ people to substance use. To that end, we provide customized, compassionate and effective treatment programs that allow them to safely address the origins of their substance use and co-occurring mental heath issues. We accomplish this through a rich combination of traditional treatment resources, like detox and individual counseling, with music-based therapies that help patient center themselves and access dormant emotions.

It’s natural for LGBTQ patients to feel guarded during the traditional talk-therapy process. Many of these individuals have faced judgment their whole lives and are inherently reluctant to open up to strangers. Music has the power to break down emotional barriers and help break down emotional barriers and allow patients to confront potentially traumatic experiences in a safe and positive manner. Recovery Unplugged has harnessed this power, and we’re ready to leverage it toward your sobriety.


We realize that patients’ struggles don’t end once they leave treatment; this is true for those in and out of the LGBTQ community. This is why we provide customized and intuitive aftercare programs that help patients avoid relapse and better manage stressful situations. These plans include implementation of the development of behavioral coping strategies patients learned in their treatment programs as well as referral information to addiction-trained mental health professionals and recovery meetings in their area. You don’t have to be ashamed of who your are, and you certainly don’t have to let it drive you to drug or alcohol addiction.
