LGBTQ+ Drug Rehab


Specialized Treatment for the LGBTQ+ Community

The road to addiction looks different for everyone who walks it. For some, it is rooted in trauma. For others, it may be the combination of genetic and environmental factors that contributed to the development of their addiction. Some individuals can say with confidence that they developed an addiction when they started experimenting with drugs, while others may have years of recreational use under their belts. 


Though it may look different in the beginning, the similarities can be astounding. Many find that they isolate themselves from their loved ones and gravitate towards others who are using or misusing substances. There is often relationship strain, and possibly negative mental and physical health effects. 


If you find yourself on the fence of whether or not you need help, the fact that you have that thought is significant. Having this thought means that there is something inside of you that sees your use as a problem. Maybe you haven’t hit the difficult rock bottom that others have, however, you likely have experienced your own consequences. 

Marina Harbor Detox is an LGBTQ+ drug detox program in San Francisco, California. As a detoxification program, our focus is on supporting and helping you find comfort while your body adjusts to the natural changes when you stop using. To learn more about our San Francisco medical detox program, we invite you to call (866) 525-3026.

Substance Abuse Rates in the LGBTQ+ Community

Research has shown that individuals within the LGBTQ+ community represent a larger portion of individuals living with a substance use disorder than heterosexual individuals. The National Institute on Drug Abuse reported that sexual minority adults have higher use patterns of substances as well. 


A 2019 National Survey on Drug Use and Health for adults who identified as Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual showed that approximately 6.8 million individuals were living with a substance use disorder, 1.9 million of which had an additional mental health concern. 


The same survey reported that the most commonly abused substances among its participants were marijuana, psychotherapeutic drugs, hallucinogens, cocaine, inhalants, methamphetamine, and heroin.


Marina Harbor Detox is a San Francisco LGBTQ+ drug rehab facility that offers a holistic and comfortable detoxification program. Our facility provides private accommodations and care throughout all our treatment spaces. To learn more about the treatment options available at Marina Harbor Detox, call (866) 525-3026 today.

Why Is Substance Abuse Common in the LGBTQ+ Community?

An unfortunate reality of our world is that individuals within the LGBTQ+ community are at a 

higher risk of discrimination, stigmas, violence, and harassment than those who are not. These experiences increase the risk of mental health concerns, including substance use disorders.

What Are the Challenges in LGBTQ+ Addiction Treatment?

A challenge to be aware of is that we have observed a trend that LGBTQ+ individuals who get help for a substance use disorder often have a more severe presentation than others. So, from the beginning, individuals in the LGBTQ+ community are at a higher risk of progressing further in their addiction than others who may be in treatment with them. 


Addiction treatment programs often utilize group therapy sessions which can unintentionally make members of the LGBTQ+ community feel as though they cannot fully open up about their addiction and other challenges they experience. Specialized treatment programs have shown better outcomes for members of the LGBTQ+ community.


Marina Harbor Detox offers a comfortable detox program in San Francisco, CA. Our staff will focus on your care and work with you to develop an effective and realistic relapse prevention plan that can support your recovery when you return home.

What to Look for in a LGBTQ+ Drug Rehab?

If you are ready to look for an LGBTQ+ rehab, you will first want to find a rehab that can provide the treatment that you need. This refers to the substance, or substances, that you are addicted to, as well as the correct level of care. There are different needs among individuals who are in inpatient and outpatient treatment programs. 


If you are living with another mental health concern, you will want to find a rehab that offers dual diagnosis treatment. Research has shown again and again that receiving treatment for an addiction and another mental health concern concurrently increases your chance of having a healthy and lasting recovery. 


Rehab programs can provide you with specialized programming for individuals in the LGBTQ+ community. This can be additional group therapy, individual therapy, or educational sessions that focus on experiences unique to LGBTQ+ individuals.

We will work with you to build a foundation for your recovery that can support you when you return home. Call (866) 525-3026 to learn more.
