LGBTQ Rehab Center
An estimated 25-30% of people who identify as LGBTQ abuse substances and are on a continuum of addiction, compared to 9-15% of people who do not. There are many possible reasons for this, including discrimination or stigmatization, rejection from family members or friends after coming out, internalized homophobia, emotional abuse, threats, or hate crimes. Depression, Anxiety, high levels of stress, and self-harm are common responses to these, and drugs and/or alcohol can seem to help the pain that these experiences create, often leading to addiction.
Corner Canyon provides individualized treatment for all clients and can help LGBTQ clients address any of these concerns. We also provide access to the University of Utah’s Transgender Program, they offer hormone treatment, surgical options, and legal advice.
