Addictions in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer Communities: If Gay Means Happy Why Am I Always Getting High?

ID: 4333

LGBT people are more likely to use alcohol, tobacco and other drugs than the general population. They are also less likely to abstain from alcohol, tobacco and other drugs, they report higher rates of substance abuse problems, and they are more likely to continue heavy drinking into later life. The workshop examines the complexity of sexual identity and gender expression, social and cultural variables, mental health, and trauma history that influence problematic use, abuse and dependence on alcohol, tobacco, drugs and other addictions. Participants will be better able to provide LGBTQ Affirmative treatment interventions in helping clients to enact behavior changes in the process of recovery from addictions. This workshop does not qualify for NBCC clock hours.
