Sunshine Behavioral Health Substance Abuse and Mental Health in the Transgender Community Guide – https://www.sunshinebehavioralhealth.com/resources/transgender-community/
Substance abuse and addiction rates in the transgender community are much higher than the cisgender community and 40% of transgender youth report being depressed most if not all the time. The transgender community has unique causes that could lead someone to drugs or alcohol and we think it is important to raise awareness to these issues while also providing help to those in need.
Alcohol Help: http://www.alcoholhelp.com/Treatment/
Alcohol Help Phone: 844-561-5951
Alcohol Help is an informational resource geared towards reducing the harm caused by alcohol which strives to provide high quality, well researched webpages surrounding the implications of alcohol use and how to seek treatment. While alcohol is a large part of social interactions for adults, the debilitating alcohol use disorder can often get written off as a moral flaw, and we want people to know there are paths forward to a healthy life.
