The LGBTQ+ Community And Recovery

Substance abuse and addiction is a significant problem within the LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, and Asexual) community. People who identify as LGBTQIA are at a greater risk for substance abuse and addiction with up to 30% of the population being affected.

These threatening statistics highlight the importance for more substance use recovery programs that support LGBTQ+ individuals.
