February 2011: Alcoholism At Large
From the February 2011 Grapevine Magazine
A fraction of programs offer specialized services.
Specialized treatment sparse for LGBT clients
The lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) population has higher rates of alcoholism and addiction than the general population in the U.S., but only a fraction of treatment programs offer services designed specifically to meet their cultural needs, according to a 2010 study.
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) reported that 6 percent of 13,688 treatment programs surveyed across the nation said they had specialized services for gays and lesbians.
