ADDICTION TREATMENT for the LGBTQ+ 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 take your life back and get peace of mind and balanced mental health.
If you’re a member of the LGBTQ+ community, you’re undoubtedly aware of how hard it can be to maneuver in this world. If you’re open and out with your sexual identity, you’re frequently viewed as different; if you’ve been afraid to disclose your identity to the people around you, there’s constant anxiety and uneasiness that comes from not being able to reveal your true self. The stigma and judgment that the LGBTQ+ population faces spills over into virtually every area of their life, including their careers, their family relationships, their civil rights, their financial stability and, especially, mental health.
Recovery Unplugged is fully mindful of the daily and long-term stigma, judgment, discrimination, and abuse faced by the LGBTQ+ population. We have developed treatment programs that speak to members' specific clinical, behavioral, and lifestyle struggles while helping you overcome alcohol and drug abuse.
Whether you realize it or not, these structural and systemic obstacles have made you and other members of the LGBTQ+ population more vulnerable to mental health issues and substance abuse. Those who identify in the “sexual minority” are twice as likely to have used illicit drugs in the past year and federal data indicates that members of the members of the LGBTQ+ population are significantly more likely to develop substance use disorder (SUD) compared to the rest of the population.

Just as the issues that you brought you to addiction may be unique to your sexual or gender identity, the treatment you receive must be tailored to your specific clinical and lifestyle needs. Recovery Unplugged is ready to provide you customized care for all aspects of your addiction and mental health issues. We recognize that every element of treatment, from clinical care to treatment environment plays a huge role in your recovery experience. You or your loved one will have access to:
COMPASSIONATE, SENSITIVE, AND QUALITY MEDICAL CARE
Whether you’re going through detox or visiting one of our doctors, we provide a sensitive care environment for the LGBTQ+ populations that addresses their complex clinical needs while connecting them with supportive and intuitive care providers. You may be facing health issues related to your sexual or gender identity, for which you haven’t received adequate care, and we are here to help. Clinical services include medical detoxification, medication-assisted treatment and regular physician visits.
SUPPORTIVE AND INCLUSIVE BEHAVIORAL REHAB
Recovery Unplugged’s LGBTQ+ drug rehab is as unique as the community. Our LGBTQ+ rehab centers offer groups just for the queer population. Clients have the option to break gender-normative barriers and express themselves with pride. Above all else, we want you to be treated with the respect you deserve. It doesn’t matter if you’re trans, gender-nonconforming, non-binary, or queer. We’re here to give you the housing options, groups, and restroom access you need to feel safe, heard and validated. We offer inpatient, outpatient and long-term programs.
ALUMNI SUPPORT AND AFTERCARE
When Recovery Unplugged says we’re your ally in your long-term recovery, we mean it in every sense of the word. We have helped hundreds of members of the LGBTQ+ community and have cultivated a supportive alumni community with whom you can continue to connect through social media and regular events. Supportive community is a large part of the care process
The reality is your addiction care needs will be different than anyone else’s. Maybe you’re suffering from co-occurring trauma related to your identity; maybe you’re estranged from your family and have suffered depression as a result.
Whatever issues have led to and sustained your addiction, our dual-diagnosis treatment program can help you simultaneously heal from addiction and underlying mental health disorders, including depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD or bipolar disorder.
You don’t have to, nor should you, let your gender or sexual preference get in the way of your recovery, health or your quality of life. Recovery Unplugged is ready to provide a safe, healing and supportive space for you or your loved one to heal from addiction. Get the supportive clinical care, sensitivity and compassion you need to start reclaiming your life and future.
