We Are Here For You.​

Suppose you, or a loved one, are one of the millions of Americans who struggle with a substance use disorder and are considering treatment. In that case, you may have noticed there are several treatment options available for you. The best treatment option to help you achieve and maintain sobriety will depend on various factors, including the severity of your addiction, your medical and mental health history, and your record with addiction treatment and relapse. Each of the above contributes to varying degrees when deciding on the right rehab for you. Depending on the nature of the program and the treatment model that works best for you, therapy may consist of individual, group, and family sessions. Additionally, professional addiction treatment rehabs like Grand Falls offer treatment focused on the needs of specific demographics, such as LQBTQ-specific therapy models. 

Many members of the LGBTQ community actively avoid seeking help to overcome addiction. Everyone has unique reasons to forego treatment, but it is essential for everyone to feel comfortable seeking potentially life-saving treatment in an environment where they feel comfortable and supported. Treatment programs that focus on LGBTQ-friendly therapeutic models are proven to be the most effective. Research has shown that specialized treatment plans lead to improved treatment outcomes over programs that do not specialize in LGBTQ treatment.

Many studies focus on the impacts of addiction on specific demographics. Recently, a wider body of research has focused on the effects of addiction within the LGBTQ community. These studies suggest that those who identify as LGBTQ experience higher rates of drug and alcohol abuse than heterosexuals. Many who identify as LGBTQ experience higher levels of stress, discrimination, and other challenges that are specific to community members. In general, these circumstances are not experienced by heterosexual individuals but are considered a key reason why LGBTQ individuals hesitate to seek help to defeat addiction.

Statistics published after completing the most recent National Survey on Drug Use and Health indicate that substance abuse rates and patterns are higher among sexual minority youth and LGBTQ adults. The 2018 survey showed that nearly 40% of the LGBTQ community used marijuana. Also, 9% reported abusing prescription painkillers or heroin, and more than 12% reported struggles with alcohol addiction. This data shows a higher rate of substance abuse across all substances when compared to heterosexual adults (individuals over 18) who reported 10% (marijuana), 4% (opioids and heroin), and 10% (alcohol). 

Unfortunately, data from the same survey indicates LGBTQ adolescents and teens are safe from drug and alcohol abuse challenges. According to data released after the nationwide study, between 20 and 30% of LGBTQ youth under the age of eighteen struggle with at least one substance use disorder. Again, when compared to heterosexual youth of the same age category who reported 9% SUD rates, it is clear LGBTQ youth face an uphill batter when it comes to getting the help they need to address addiction risk. Another survey of the LGBTQ community conducted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) suggests that diagnosed substance use disorders are more than twice as prevalent among members of the LGBTQ community who do seek help with their addiction and are more likely to struggle with a co-occurring disorder or dual diagnosis condition.

Everyone has the ability to start their recovery from addiction.

I can’t thank the staff as well as the individuals that I got to grow with at Grand Falls enough! I grew from the man that didn’t think he had a problem, into the man that recognizes that problem and is proactively doing everything to combat it. A lot of the staff members are recovering Addicts/Alcoholics and that brought a lot of value and realism to the therapy. This experience was life changing and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for helping me discover how to be the best version of myself!

Why Treatment Personalized for the LGBTQ Community is Successful

In recent years, the level of effort focused on reducing stigma and stigmatizing behaviors towards the LGBTQ community has increased dramatically. Although significant progress has occurred, there is, unfortunately, a long way to go before members of the LGBTQ community feel safe and supported as they begin their journey to overcome addiction. Because stigma and other behaviors are still a problem, the stressors that lead LGBTQ youth and adults to start experimenting with or using drugs and alcohol continue to be a significant and complex part of their daily lives. Because of these ongoing issues, members of the LGBTQ community are more likely to actively avoid seeking treatment at an addiction treatment center without a specialty program due to fear of how non-specialized treatment may impact their psychological and spiritual well-being. 

At an LGBTQ residential treatment program in Missouri, you can expect compassionate, skilled, and evidence-based treatment programs that focus on your needs as you begin treatment. At a specialized rehab like Grand Falls Recovery, our treatment programs focus on the needs of LGBTQ community members, increasing your opportunity for improved treatment outcomes.

The Benefits of an LGBTQ Drug and Alcohol Rehab

Choosing a treatment center where you feel safe, comfortable, and supported is vital to achieving lasting recovery. If you are a member of the LGBTQ community, choosing a rehab specializing in LGBTQ care is critical to your treatment success. Feeling safe and understood as you begin your therapy journey is crucial to recovery success. 

LGBTQ residential treatment at and LGBTQ drug and alcohol rehab helps improve treatment success by ensuring treatment programs are designed to address your specific treatment needs and goals. Treatment providers can utilize simple changes or alterations to a traditional program to produce a greater sense of comfort and safety in the residential treatment setting. Examples of these may include housing options that ensure transgender patients are housed with their gender identity. It is also essential to ensure all members of the treatment community (including medical and mental health providers) are trained to address the potential treatment differences, which could vastly improve treatment outcomes for LGBTQ patients. 

At our LGBTQ rehab in Missouri, members of our caring and compassionate treatment team realize that each person who chooses Grand Falls Recovery, regardless of sexual or gender identity, has unique needs surrounding their treatment planning. We will work with you to ensure each component of your treatment plan at our LGBTQ drug and alcohol rehab addresses critical factors in the treatment environment, such as safety and comfort. We understand that offering uniquely designed, individualized treatment plans that address emotional, physical and spiritual needs are vital to enhancing your recovery journey and overall treatment experience.
