Recovery Village - LGBT substance abuse

No one is immune to substance use disorder. It can strike anyone at any time, regardless of age, gender, nationality, ethnicity, class or sexual orientation. However, some groups are more at risk to fall victim to drug and/or alcohol addiction than others. Unfortunately, this is true for the LGBTQ community. This is mainly because of the mental health disorders that develop in this community as a result of abuse, discrimination, rejection and ostracism. This page has links to many resources to help people conquer substance abuse.

Suicide Prevention Lifeline (LGBTQ+)

The LGBTQ+ community is diverse and strong, but may be disproportionately at-risk for suicidal feelings and other mental health struggles because of the discrimination and prejudice they too often are up against.
