LGBTQ+ is an acronym for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender, queer or questioning. Seekhaven is dedicated to providing recovery coliving to members of the LGBTQ+ community, giving them freedom to live their truth without judgment, fear, and inequality. Until society becomes more accepting of the LGBTQ+ community, there will be more individuals turning to substance abuse as a way to self-medicate from the alienation they face in society.
An estimated 20 to 30% of the LGBTQ+ community abuses
substances, vs. 9% the population as a whole.
Substances can temporarily numb uncomfortable feelings of depression, anxiety, anger, or fear impacting the LGBTQ+ community. There are many long-term, negative physical and psychological consequences of abusing substances to avoid the reality of negative emotional and social impacts.
The providers listed on Seekhaven’s platform strive to provide safe, long-term recovery solutions for the most socially excluded people in our communities.
