Addiction Campuses LGBT Programs
We created this LGBTQ+ guide because we would receive calls about community members that were discriminated upon at treatment centers because of who they love.

The guide is meant to be informational and provides great tips about which questions to ask centers to ensure they are LGBTQ+ friendly, it talks about the different types of programs that are out there and more. Our hope is that wherever they are, they can make educated choices if they are looking to get help, even from local places.

Our mission is to educate as many people as possible by providing informational resources that increase understanding and awareness of addiction - a disease that unfortunately affects those within the LGBTQ+ community at a 48% higher rate compared to the rest of the population. We hope that the information we provide can help LGBTQ+ folks and their loved ones be aware of this, and help them find nondiscriminatory aid if needed.

It covers our rights, steps to take, and even discusses homelessness in LGBTQ youth.
