About This Support Group

Members of the LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer+) community often face unique challenges and barriers when it comes to addiction treatment and recovery, which is why we are dedicated to creating a supportive environment for you. Our recovery meetings provide a stigma-free and inclusive space for members of the queer community to share struggles with mental health issues, drug addiction, or alcoholism. Facilitated by our recovery coaches, we discuss various obstacles that may impact your sobriety, ranging from transgender identity and sexual preference to social injustices in the heteronormative world. Our LGBTQ+ addiction support group is free and open to the community on the road to sobriety.

**To maintain the privacy and safety of our community, attending this LGBTQ+ recovery meeting for educational or research purposes is not permitted. However, you may find helpful information through our drug glossary and blog.**

Support Groups

It is often said that the opposite of addiction is not sobriety, but connection. Having a strong support system is paramount to your sobriety and recovery journey. At Mountainside, we offer a wide range of in-person and virtual support groups for individuals in recovery and friends and families with loved ones in recovery. These groups are designed to help you stay connected to like-minded individuals regardless of where you are.
