Specialized LGBTQ+ Programming & Treatment Services

The Acadia Healthcare network offers a safe and inclusive environment for people of all gender identities and sexual orientations to seek treatment for mental health, behavioral health, and addiction challenges. LGBTQ+ individuals can start their path to healing and long-term recovery at one of Acadia’s many world-class treatment facilities.

Serving the Unique Needs of the LGBTQ+ Community

People who identify as LGBTQ+ are typically at a much higher risk of experiencing mental health, behavioral health, or addiction challenges than people who identify as straight or cisgender (people who identify with the gender they were assigned at birth) for a multitude of reasons. Many individuals in the LGBTQ+ community often experience extreme fear or anxiety when deciding whether to come out to friends, family, and their community because they might face discrimination and violence for their sexual orientation or gender identity. Some do experience the discrimination they feared and are rejected by their loved ones or forced to hide their sexual orientation or gender identity in the workplace.

The daily risk of discrimination, violence, and microaggressions can take a heavy toll, which is why people who identify as LGBTQ+ are particularly vulnerable to experiencing mental health, behavioral health, and addiction challenges. Many people who identify as LGBTQ+ live with mental health conditions such as major depression, anxiety, posttraumatic stress disorder, and substance use disorders. And people in the LGBTQ+ community are also at a higher risk of dying by suicide because there is little protection or support for the harassment they might be experiencing in their daily lives.

The Acadia Healthcare network welcomes individuals of all sexual orientations and gender identities. At Acadia Healthcare’s treatment facilities, you’ll receive exceptional care from professional staff members who are trained in the latest evidence-based techniques. When you choose to heal at an Acadia Healthcare treatment facility, you can rest assured that your path to recovery will focus on you as a whole person and your unique needs, setting you on the path to wellness.

Safe & Inclusive Treatment Offered Through Acadia Healthcare

At Acadia Healthcare, we don’t believe that anyone should be denied care based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. All treatment facilities within the Acadia Healthcare network welcome people regardless of how they identify. People who identify as LGBTQ+ will find a safe and inclusive environment at any of Acadia Healthcare’s treatment facilities to heal from the mental health, behavioral health, and addiction challenges they might be experiencing.

This can be especially helpful for LGBTQ+ individuals who are looking for highly specialized care within a community of like-minded people. If you’re looking for a treatment facility within the Acadia network that specializes in working with the LGBTQ+ community, please contact a facility near you and they can assist you in finding care that fits your unique needs.
