Waycross - Gays and Lesbians

Gays and lesbians who are having problems with drugs and alcohol have the choice of going to a drug treatment center that is specifically intended for them. Making the decision to enroll into one of these programs is a very good first step towards recovery. While in treatment recovering addicts not only address their issues with drugs and/or alcohol but also work on other emotional and personal issues they are struggling with. Gays and Lesbians in treatment 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 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.
