Looking for a Gay Drug Rehab or Alcohol Rehab in Florida

Looking for a Gay Drug Rehab or Alcohol Rehab in Florida
For years drug rehab programs and alcohol rehab programs have been opening in Florida. Everything from detox to inpatient addiction treatment and extended or long term care are available for the general public. There have been drug rehab programs for eating disorders sexual trauma men and women but very few drug rehab programs for the gay and lesbian population. Even today there are only a handful of drug rehab programs that specialize in gay drug rehab or gay addiction treatment and a few more with specialized gay drug rehab components within the actual drug rehab. While there are many more drug rehab programs with gay a component then true gay drug rehab programs not many of them have staff trained in issues specific to the gay population. Issues such as homophobia internalized homophobia coming out and sexuality often go untouched not to mention the sensitivity training that must take place for the other members of the staff.
Certain areas more sensitive to Gay Drug Rehab and Gay Alcohol Rehab
I think it is safe to say there are certain areas in the state of Florida that are more sensitive to the gay lesbian community than others. Some of the areas might include Miami Fort Lauderdale Orlando Tampa and Jacksonville. Each of these cities have substantial gay populations and services to match. It stands to reason that opening a drug rehab with a gay addiction treatment component or a gay drug rehab in these areas might be easier to manage due to the community support and ancillary community services
Jacksonville Florida Drug Rehab Opens Gay Addiction Treatment Component
For as long as anyone can remember there has not been any drug rehab programs with gay drug rehab components in Jacksonville providing addiction treatment services to the gay and lesbian community. This statement is especially true when we speak of gay drug rehab programs. What is sad is that within the Orlando St. Augustine Jacksonville area there is a significant gay lesbian population. We are happy to report that a drug rehab has opened a gay component within its addiction treatment program called Freedom Rings which can be found at http://www.lakeviewfreedomrings.com This may be the beginning of a trend in Northeast Florida to begin paying more attention to treating drug addiction and alcoholism within the gay and lesbian community.
