Preventing and treating addiction requires professional knowledge, ongoing access to resources and a strong social support system. The prevalence of troubled personal relationships among lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) individuals often contributes to the high substance abuse rates within this community. Unfortunately family members and friends often share the consequences of an addict’s behavior. Having a strong support group, family member or friend with the courage to confront an addict about the problem can make the difference from death or life. These articles cover the various issues we as family or friends encounter as we live and work to restore an addict we care for. If you have questions, feel free to contact us any time.
