Lewiston, Maine - Gays and Lesbians

Gays and lesbians who are having problems with drug abuse have the option of going to a drug treatment facility that is specially designed for gays or lesbians. Making the decision to go to one of these programs is a very good first step towards recovery. During rehabilitation recovering addicts not only address their issues with drugs and/or alcohol but also address other emotional and personal problems they are struggling with. Gays and Lesbians in recovery examine how their destructive behavior was a result of inner feelings left unresolved. Counseling and/or therapy helps in resolving issues with shame, Isolation, feelings of rejection, discomfort in one's own skin, etc. Once treatment is complete they will be able to feel stronger about who they are and know that drugs and alcohol is not the solution.
