Facts

  • Opiates which also have legitimate use in medicine but are commonly abused include morphine, meperidine, paregoric (which contains opium), and cough syrups that contain codeine.
  • The fentanyl patch is a slow-release form of the drug, and is 100 times more potent than morphine.
  • Research has proven that long-term drug use results in changes in the brain that can affect the person long after they have stopped using drugs.
  • Opiates interfere with the transmission of pain messages in the spinal cord, preventing them from reaching the brain and resulting in pain relief.

Gays and Lesbians - Mission

Gays and lesbians who are having problems with drug addiction have the choice of attending a drug treatment program that is specially designed for them. Making the decision to attend one of these programs is a great first step towards recovery. During rehabilitation recovering addicts not only address their problems with drugs and/or alcohol but also handle other emotional and personal issues 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, discomfort in one's own skin, feelings of rejection, etc. Once rehabilitation is complete they will be able to feel stronger about who they are and know that drugs and alcohol is not the solution.
