No one is immune to substance use disorder.

It can strike anyone at any time, regardless of age, gender, nationality, ethnicity, class or sexual orientation.

However, some groups are more at risk to fall victim to drug and/or alcohol addiction than others.

Unfortunately, this is true for the L G B T Q community.

This is mainly because of the mental health disorders that develop in this community as a result of abuse, discrimination, rejection and ostracism that they undergo.

Members of the L G B T Q community are more at risk to have substance abuse issues.

Many of the emotional issues and mental health disorders that lead people to activating a drug and/or alcohol addiction are prevalent in the L G B T Q community.

Among transgender people, 20 to 30% are abuse substances.

This is compared to just 9% of the general population. Gay and bisexual men are 12.2 times more likely to use andhetamines than straight men. Nearly 40% of people who identify as lesbian, gay or bisexual have used illicit drugs within the past year.
