“Studies confirm that substance use within the LGBTQ community is significantly higher than the general population.”

Reaching out for help is hard. Those of us within the LGBTQ community often feel exacerbated feelings of isolation and fear. Our life history may include complex issues that those outside of the LGBTQ community find difficult to fully understand. Over the years, Stonewall Institute has treated a full range of LGBTQ patients presenting with a host of complex challenges. Patients we see are often running from core issues that can be easily misunderstood by the general population. It’s important when searching for treatment services, that you find a center that is truly skilled at working with the LGBTQ population. The truth is that in today’s world, many treatment center’s claim they are “LGBTQ friendly”, but few truly have the expertise to address the complexity of our needs. At Stonewall Institute, we have this expertise & we welcome the opportunity to work with you. Core issues that we assist clients with throughout the addiction treatment process include:

Handling rejection and broken relationships with our family of origin

Sorting through the pain of living a “double life” of secrecy & shame by compartmentalizing who we’re out to

Navigating social connection within the community outside of the gay bars and nightclubs

Ensuring adequate health care for issues such as HIV/AIDS

Intensified financial stressors for those who identify as transgender

Spiritual conflict due to negative societal messages about LGBTQ individuals
