Substance Abuse and Mental Health in the LGBTQ+ Community

In 2020, 21.8% of lesbian, gay, or bisexual individuals met the criteria for alcohol use disorder, compared to 11% of the overall population. Similarly, 6.7% of lesbian, gay, or bisexual individuals had misused prescription Opioids in the past year in 2020, whereas the same was only true for 3.6% of the overall adult population. Transgender people, too, are more likely to seek treatment for substance abuse. 

It is not just substance use disorders that the LGBTQ+ population experiences disproportionately. LGBTQ+ people are also more likely to experience many other mental health conditions and concerns. These include but aren’t limited to higher rates of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), eating disorders, suicidal ideation and attempts, depression, and anxiety. Often, these are conditions that co-occur with substance use disorders. 

While these statistics are alarming, research also shows that some factors can protect LGBTQ+ mental health. Specifically, acceptance, connection, and support make a difference. That is why being in a space where who you are is truly embraced and having a sense of community can play such a big role in overcoming mental health concerns.


The Importance of Peer Support in Treatment

Peer support can be life-changing. You no longer feel isolated when you have peers around you who understand, are aware of, or share your experiences. Being LGBTQ+ can inform all areas of life, from your familial and romantic relationships to work or school. Transphobia, homophobia, social isolation, family problems, poverty, trouble finding housing or work, and violence are just some of the experiences those within the LGBTQ+ community frequently encounter. If you have multiple marginalized identities, it may be even more challenging.  

Trauma and dual-diagnosis disorders are common among those in the LGBTQ+ community, and we are equipped to address both. In group therapy at our treatment centers, clients talk about their lives and learn new skills. In individual counseling, clients work one-on-one with a counselor to address their unique needs as an individual, giving you a chance to get care informed by your specific experiences and every part of who you are. 

It’s a breath of fresh air for many people to have the chance to embrace themselves and get their needs met fully in a mental health and addiction treatment space. Having a support system matters, and Prevail Recovery Center is here to not just connect you with that support system but to help you stay in touch with the support system you create in treatment and sustain recovery long-term. As you prepare to leave treatment, you’ll make a relapse prevention and aftercare plan with treatment staff, which is often where this comes into play.

New Jersey LGBTQ+ Addiction Treatment Options

Prevail Recovery Center is a fully outpatient addiction treatment center with multiple levels of care. Clients may favor outpatient treatment for various reasons. For example, outpatient rehab is often less expensive than inpatient care. Similarly, leaving your treatment center after your groups, individual counseling sessions, and other treatments are over for the day gives people a sense of freedom and comfort they don’t get in inpatient programs. We offer the following options, with LGBTQ+ programs at every level. If you need assistance determining which one is right for you, our admissions team can help. 


Partial hospitalization 

Partial hospitalization is a very intensive form of outpatient care. Also called PHP, our partial hospitalization programs require that you attend care six days per week for most of the day. This is so you can get optimal supervision and support while in treatment. In PHP and all other levels of care at our LGBTQ+ drug and alcohol rehab center, you will get a personalized treatment plan. Treatment may consist of many different therapies and treatments. These may include but are not limited to the 12-step approach, individual, group, and family therapy, art therapy, holistic treatments (e.g., reiki, guided meditations, or sound therapy), nutrition assistance, and recreation activities.

Intensive outpatient

Intensive outpatient programs are one step below PHP in intensity. Also called IOP, our intensive outpatient programs offer more flexibility and require a lower time commitment than PHP. As a result, IOP clients can fulfill life responsibilities such as work, school, or caring for their families while getting high-quality addiction treatment. IOP and outpatient clients have access to the same treatments as PHP clients, but you need to commute to your treatment center less frequently throughout the week and will not be in treatment as many hours per day. 


Outpatient care is the next step below IOP. It is ideal for those who are maintaining sobriety or have mild symptoms. Our outpatient program can consist of continued participation in groups, individual therapy, regular check-ins with your case manager, and support throughout alumni programs or other practices. Like all of our other levels of care, your individualized treatment plan will detail what outpatient looks like for you.

Admissions and Insurance

For most people searching for an LGBTQ+ drug and alcohol rehab center in New Jersey, cost and insurance coverage are critical considerations when it comes to finding treatment. Prevail Recovery Center accepts most health insurance plans. When you contact us to discuss treatment, one of the first things we will do is verify your health insurance coverage or help you establish and confirm another payment option. That way, you get to focus on recovery in treatment instead of cost. Once your health insurance coverage is verified, you’ll get an intake assessment that’ll help us get a better idea of your treatment needs. Usually, this is when you will commit to a specific level of care and learn about the next steps toward entering treatment. We can also help you find living arrangements (e.g., sober living) nearby to make your commute to treatment easier.
