Drug & Alcohol Addiction Services for the LGBTQ Community in Illinois

Drug abuse for members of the LGBTQ community in Illinois does affect many individuals and families. When struggling with drug abuse, it can be difficult to find help, or at least find a program that will meet your treatment needs. Some of the drug treatment programs or counseling services in Illinois may provide LGBTQ specific treatment options, which would be counseling and therapy for the barriers they face, which may cause the addiction. Roughly 20 to 30% of LGBTQ people suffer from a substance use disorder. For example, gay men are 12 times more likely to abuse amphetamines, and nine times more likely to abuse heroin. Even casual drug abuse has the potential to lead to addiction. Any type of drug abuse problem can be properly treated but will require some type of inpatient or outpatient treatment. Drug rehab programs in Illinois can help addicts and their families through any type of drug problem.
