Gay, Lesbian & Bisexual Issues

Gay, Lesbian & Bisexual Issues

Did you know that Homosexuality was considered a mental illness until 1973 when the American Psychiatric Association dropped the classification of homosexuality as a mental illness? It is likely that all substance abuse treatment programs have Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered clients, but staff members may not realize that they are treating a client that may be part of this population. Most treatment programs do not ask about a client's sexual orientation or gender identity. The client cannot anticipate the reaction they will receive when mentioning their sexual orientation. Therefore, many Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered people are afraid to speak openly about their sexual orientation or identity.

Genesis is dedicated to providing sensitive treatment services for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered population. It is also our goal to educate all those involved in the treatment process to become more aware of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered issues, in order to assist the client with addressing complex issues that they are faced with on a daily basis. Genesis has treatment services available for Adolescents and Adults, both individual and group counseling. We also provide services to family members and work collaboratively with anyone involved in the individual's life.
