• Women are unable to metabolize alcohol as efficiently as men because they have less of a liver enzyme (dehydrogenase) that converts alcohol into an inactive substance.
  • Methamphetamine causes a release of high levels of dopamine into the areas of the brain that have to do with the feeling of pleasure and reward, which is why the drug is so addictive.
  • Many people use Valium and other benzodiazepines, which account for twenty percent of the total number of prescriptions that are written for controlled substances in the United States each year.
  • PCP users may experience feelings of invulnerability and exaggerated strength, and some users may become severely disoriented, violent, or suicidal.

Cumming, Georgia - Gays and Lesbians

Gays and lesbians who are having problems with drug abuse have the choice of attending a drug rehab facility that is specially designed for them. Choosing to go to one of these programs is a great first step towards recovery. While in treatment recovering addicts not only deal with their issues with drugs and/or alcohol but also handle other emotional and personal problems they are having difficulties with. Gays and Lesbians in recovery take a closer look at how their destructive behavior was a result of inner feelings left unresolved. Counseling and/or therapy aids in resolving issues with isolation, shame, discomfort in one's own skin, feelings of rejection, etc. Once rehabilitation is complete they will be able to feel more secure about who they are and be able to live happily without the desire to use drugs.
