Addiction Treatment for People of Every Lifestyle
People with substance use disorder use drugs to escape from reality, but each person’s reality is their own. Trauma is trauma whether you identify as gay, straight, bisexual, queer, or somewhere else on the sexuality spectrum. At Greater Boston Addiction Centers, we realize that being part of a marginalized group sometimes results in additional trauma depending on your environment. We offer the following addiction treatment programs to our clients:
- Daytime outpatient addiction treatment
- Evening outpatient addiction treatment
- Addiction treatment addressing co-occurring disorders
- Boston employee assistance program
It’s harder to cope with life when you feel oppressed for something that is out of your control. While some people are able to drink and use drugs without developing a chemical dependency, many people are not. If drugs and alcohol have stopped being fun and started causing harm in your life, Greater Boston Addiction Centers can help you choose a different path.
LGBTQ-Friendly Addiction Treatment
In our outpatient group therapy programs, topics of conversation will be mainly centered around addiction-related topics. While each person will bring their own experiences to the table, the personality traits, home lives, adverse life events, social experiences, and access to drugs are often more similar than people realize. Every person is fighting their own battle in a complicated world.
Drug Treatment Offers New Possibilities
The combination of opioids and stimulants can easily cause people to completely lose control of their goals, priorities, and self-awareness. When a person is chemically dependent, their brain stops producing feel-good hormones when drugs are not present in the person’s system. Unfortunately, powerful opioids like fentanyl and heroin—especially when combined with benzodiazepines and stimulants—trick people into thinking they’re happy when they’re high, regardless of the present circumstances. Even if you feel hopeless, worthless, or some combination of the two, the counselors at GBAC offer supportive, progress-centered guidance that can help people get back on their feet.
We Welcome People of All Gender Identities
Our inclusive, friendly, safe recovery space offers acceptance and support to people who aren’t used to having either. Individual and group counseling are the foundation of our drug rehab. We also offer educational and experiential therapy.
Depression & Addiction
Depression, especially when paired with substance use disorder, can be a devastating and terrifying illness, but it often responds positively to treatment. People with gender identities outside the norm may be more likely to experience depression. Therefore, it is important to receive individualized attention and an evaluation at a highly-rated treatment center.
Your Recovery Starts Today
The LGBTQ+ support services at Greater Boston Addiction Centers encourage the development of self-love and acceptance. Even if you feel like recovery is impossible, many of our clients are amazed to learn how much better their lives can be when they break free of unhealthy patterns. Our outpatient rehab programs prepare people to start leading new healthy lives once they finish treatment. Contact our team today by calling 877.920.6583 to learn more.
