Drug addiction and dependency are increasingly prevalent across the United States and disproportionately affect the LGBTQ community. Whether someone is self-medicating for mental health or engaging in social drug use at clubs and bars, the community often lacks safe, inclusive recovery tools. At La Fuente Hollywood Treatment Center, we believe treating the community can help us become stronger together. That’s why our drug rehab programs in California focus on cutting-edge, evidence-based recovery focused on LGBTQ clients.

Do I Need Drug Rehab?
Drug addiction can look different for everyone. For some people, occasional drug use at a rave or party doesn’t lead to addiction. For others, even casual use can develop into dependency. When the brain relies on a substance like ecstasy or meth for certain chemical processes, it’s time to reach out for help. Some signs of drug addiction include:
- Drug-seeking behavior
- Changes in sleep patterns
- Changes in behavior
- Mood swings
- Changes in breath and body odor
- Changes in appetite
- Weight loss
- Tremors and shaking
Drugs work by changing a person’s brain chemistry. When someone abuses a drug, the brain stops producing necessary chemicals like dopamine, serotonin, and GABA. This can decrease overall mental health and lead the brain to rely on drugs for these chemicals. When this happens, a person will experience withdrawal when the drugs leave their bloodstream. Withdrawal symptoms can be incredibly difficult to manage without support. They can last days or weeks and can often recur months later without warning. Some withdrawal signs include:
- Unstable mood
- Trouble concentrating
- Difficulty following conversations
Studies show that mental health disorders can increase the risk of drug addiction and make it harder to quit substance use. Unfortunately, the LGBTQ community often lacks access to safe mental health resources. At La Fuente, our drug rehab programs focus on mental health alongside drug detox with individual, family, and group therapy to help the community recover together.
