Gay recovery is about getting your life back and finding
gay recovery from drugs and alcohol. Gay recovery is an intensive
residential drug and alcohol treatment program based on therapeutic
counseling and the 12 steps of recovery. This program has been in
existence for over 50 years and have evolved from alcohol treatments
to various other drugs and now gay recovery. Specific needs of individuals
trying to get well have prompted the formation of such a specialized
service as gay recovery. Our gay cliental has shared with us from
their past experience that being open and honest about themselves
and their life in respect to recovery is easier surrounded with
people that can fully relate to them.
The life of a drug addict or alcoholic is very complicated.
It doesn't matter whether you have a job or not, money or not or
a family, the continuous obsession to obtain and use drugs and alcohol
becomes consuming. This preoccupation with getting high takes over
life to the exclusion of the job, the loved one, the friends, the
social activities and even health problems. Many addicts and alcoholics
do not even recognize the many problems associated with their drinking
or using until the problems have really added up. The purpose for
gay recovery is to not add another problem to this list. Rather
gay recovery removes the hurdle of prejudice and judgment from the
A successful treatment program like the one offered
at Spencer Recover Centers includes a comprehensive examination
of lifestyle choices and behavior patterns. It is not in the best
interest of the client if he or she feels any reservation and cannot
be completely honest with his or her counselors and peers. Gay recovery
makes this process easier. Group therapy is much more effective
when the client knows that fellow patients have an understanding
of what he or she is going through. If you are a homosexual man
or woman or have a friend that needs treatment, please call Spencer
Recover Center's gay recovery today.
Drug addiction and alcoholism is a disease that is
progressive and will not stop or go away on its own. Dependency
is not easier if you are gay, rich, loved, or employed. This disease
will ruin everything you love if you let it. It took some time for
your mind and body to become dependent on drugs and it will take
some work to get off drugs. Expect to take action every day in rehab
and to do some writing examining past choices. Gay recovery is not
about being judged or shamed or told that you have done a bad thing.
Gay recovery is about getting well, staying well and living the
life of your dreams.

your own you already understand this. We hope that you will make
the choice today to call us for a confidential consultation and
