It is not enough to be LGBT specific. We are forward-thinking and constantly iterating as we challenge ourselves to stay on the cutting-edge of substance abuse and mental health treatment within the LGBT community.
We look at what’s relevant to our population, what needs and pain points are present, and how we can marry our services and unique core competencies to meet those needs.
La Fuente Treatment Center has been in the forefront working with LGBT individuals, their families and loved ones struggling with addiction since 2005 providing gay drug rehab in Los Angeles.
La Fuente Hollywood Treatment Center has become one of the nation’s leading gay drug rehab and treatment programs with vast experience applying effective treatment interventions that are specific to the issues of LGBT individuals.
LGBT individuals have spent most of their lives trying to fit in and conform to sexual/gender ideas and constructs that do not match how they see themselves in the world. For most, this has created alienation, isolation as well as discrimination.
Methamphetamine, cocaine, party drugs (GHB, ecstasy, ketamine), alcohol and prescription medications are heavily abused in the LGBT community. High-risk behaviors associated with many of these drugs can cause even greater shame, increase health risks and perpetuate use.
La Fuente Hollywood Treatment Center, in addition to being experts in the issues and treatment of LGBT individuals, also is the only gay drug rehab program in the Greater Los Angeles area that has spent over a decade developing and providing the immediate community integration and introduction necessary for long-term recovery.
La Fuente understands that an intimate treatment experience can provide each person the greatest opportunity needed for healing. We value and take this to heart.
Our home-like intimate setting and smaller groups facilitated by experts working with LGBT people provide a rich environment to do the deep work necessary to form bonds, trust and a sense of family.
At La Fuente, we take client immersion to a whole new level. In fact, community plays such a large role in La Fuente’s treatment programs that treatment center locations have been thoughtfully chosen and purposefully integrated into the La Fuente experience. This takes the form of local service work, philanthropic work, and just as importantly, civic service. We believe integrating social issues through community engagement plays an integral part in our client’s success as we work to improve the communities we live and work in.
