Substance Use Disorder and LBGTQ+ People; Assessing the Impact of Compounded Stigma and Treatment Considerations for this Population
Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC)
Substance use is a complex issue that affects individuals from all walks of life, including the LGBTQ community. Unfortunately, members of this community often face unique challenges when seeking help for addiction. Stigma, shame, and a lack of family support can all make it difficult for LGBTQ individuals to access the resources they need to overcome substance use disorders.
As a service provider, it is important to approach these issues with sensitivity and compassion. Ethical considerations must be considered when providing services to LBGTQ individuals, and it is critical to create an organization that is welcoming and accepting.

Co-Occurring Disorders: What Providers Need to Know
Individuals diagnosed with a mental illness have varying lifetime prevalence rates for developing a substance use disorder. Unfortunately, individuals with co-occurring disorders face numerous challenges, such as an increase in the severity of symptoms, lower treatment adherence rates, higher dropout rates, an increased risk of suicide, and a greater chance of relapse. To help providers better understand this population, this workshop will provide education on the prevalence of co-occurring disorders, assessment tools, engagement strategies with specialized populations, and treatment interventions.
