LGBTQ+ Affirmative Treatment

At The Pointe Malibu Recovery Center, we embrace and support people of all gender identities and sexual orientations. Our inclusive community is dedicated to fostering healing, safety, and connection for everyone.

While the LBGTQ+ community faces the same issues around addiction, mental health, co-occurring disorders, and chronic pain thatWhile the LGBTQ+ community faces the same issues around addiction, mental health, co-occurring disorders, and chronic pain as other populations, these issues are often amplified by unique challenges stemming from societal marginalization. Members of this community frequently encounter additional stressors, fear, and emotional pain due to dominant societal narratives and prejudice.

These pervasive and painful narratives can feel inescapable, arising not only from outside the LGBTQ+ community but also, unfortunately, from family members, friends, colleagues, and even one’s self-narrative. The difficulties associated with substance abuse and mental health issues are intensified by the stress, emotional pain, and discrimination experienced throughout a lifetime.

At The Pointe Malibu Recovery Center, we are committed to providing culturally humble, gender-affirming, and LGBTQ+ affirming services. Our polyvagal-informed approach emphasizes creating a sense of safety and connection. We also maintain strong ties with the Los Angeles LGBT Center and other LGBTQ+ recovery-specific community resources to support you on your healing journey.
