LGBT Gay Rehab Center Atlanta, GA

A Better Life Treatment is one of the nation’s leading gay drug rehab and
treatment programs with vast experience applying effective treatment
interventions that are specific to the issues of LGBT individuals. LGBT
individuals have spent most of their lives trying to fit in and conform to
sexual/gender ideas and constructs that do not match how they see
themselves in the world. For most, this has created alienation, isolation as
well as discrimination.

There are many factors that contribute to the prevalence of Addiction in the
LGBTQ communities. LGBTQ drug and alcohol rehab programs are rare,
because we are still viewed as people dealing with an “alternative lifestyle”.

A study published by SAMHSA in 2011 found that lesbians are significantly more likely

heterosexual populations, a link that may be attributed to the fact that
methamphetamine and related stimulants can increase libido.

Bisexual Men and Women:
A report on Bisexual Health by The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force found that
out of the top ten health issues affecting the bisexual community, substance use and
Alcohol abuse are tops on the list. Bisexual women report the highest rates of alcohol
use, heavy drinking, and alcohol-related problems compared to heterosexual and
lesbian women.

The treatment of drugs and alcohol addictions in transgender men
and women begins with understanding the humanity and journey of
people whose gender identity, expression or behavior is different
from those typically associated with their assigned sex at birth. We

that addiction rates in these groups are much higher than the general
