Gay counseling is for homosexual men and women who
would benefit from alcohol and drug abuse treatment with gay counseling.
Gay counseling is aimed at recovery from the gay perspective. Alcoholism
and drug addiction can be difficult to overcome and gay counseling
can alleviate some of the extra burden and stress that being gay
can create. Counseling and rehabilitation requires complete honesty
and openness and gay counseling can help create a safe environment.
Many people do not feel completely safe sharing their sexual preference
when they don't have gay counseling and often sex and drinking or
drugs go together and therefore interferes with recovery.
Spencer Recovery Centers offer gay counseling as a
special accommodation to the gay community. We understand that having
gay facilities and meetings can be extremely beneficial when trying
to recover from drugs and alcohol abuse. No cookie cutter brand
of treatment works for all people and customizing treatment for
the gay lifestyle has proven to be very effective for recovery.
Spencer's treatment program addresses the whole person, not just
drug and alcohol abuse. In fact, drinking and using are often symptoms
of coping habits that have gone to the extreme. It is important
to find a place in recovery where you can be yourself completely
and look at your life with an open and honest eye. If you feel any
reservation about sharing your lifestyle with other people than
this can be a problem and gay counseling can help put you at ease.
Our gay clients find it much easier to share with
people who completely understand the lifestyle rather than sharing
in a room full of straight people. It is critical to stay in treatment
for the recommended period of time and gay counseling makes this
easier for our clients. Gay counseling addresses the medical, psychological,
and social aspects of the individual and seeks to create new behavior
patterns that do not include getting loaded.
Drug and alcohol abuse by themselves are life-threatening
conditions that can be further complicated by unsafe sex while drunk
or loaded. Alcoholism and drug addiction are progressive diseases
whose most successful cure is intervention and abstinence. This
is not easy for individuals who have been drinking and using for
many years and that is why residential treatment in a continuously
monitored facility like Spencer Recover Centers is necessary. Our
facilities are fully staffed with medical personnel who can assess
HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, tuberculosis and other infectious diseases.
Gay counseling can also help people who are already infected deal
with their disease and addiction.
If you or a loved one is having a problem with alcohol
or drugs and could benefit from gay counseling, do give us a call.
Recovery can be a long process and it is important to make it as
comfortable and effective as possible to have results. Another fortunate
aspect of recovery is that the client does not need to be completely
willing in the beginning for treatment to work. Our intervention
services have brought in many reluctant clients who have been able
to open their eyes, see the truth and have remained sober.
We have facilities across the United States and accept
most insurance plans. Please give us a call today for a free confidential
