Addiction hits the LGBTQ community at much higher rates than within the heterosexual community. Gay men face stigma on multiple fronts from both the larger culture as well as within the LBGTQ community. Idealized standards of status, race, masculinity, and physical perfection can contribute to low self-esteem, alienation, and the addiction cycle. We help you disengage from addictive behaviors and engage in healthy relationships built on intimacy, empathy, and positive self-regard. Pathways’ Recovery Groups provide sober support while improving coping skills.
