Providence Treatment: Supporting and Serving the LGBTQ+ Community

Providence Treatment is not just a standard addiction treatment center; it is a sanctuary of hope and support for the LGBTQ+ community. Owned and operated by members of the LGBTQ+ community, Providence Treatment understands the unique challenges and needs of LGBTQ+ individuals seeking recovery from addiction. Our commitment goes beyond just providing treatment; it embraces inclusivity, understanding, and a safe space for all individuals, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

Offering Customized Help for Professionals

LGBTQ+ Focused Support and Treatment

At Providence Treatment, we understand that LGBTQ+ individuals can encounter unique challenges when it comes to addiction and recovery. Our specialized approach is designed to comprehensively address the specific issues and concerns that this community may face. We strive to create a safe and supportive environment where every client feels valued, respected, and empowered as they navigate their path to recovery.

We are proud to offer a specialized recovery group specifically tailored to support the LGBTQ+ community. This group creates a safe and affirming environment where individuals can openly share their experiences, challenges, and successes with peers who truly understand their unique journey. Our mission is to provide a supportive space where LGBTQ+ clients can feel heard, accepted, and empowered as they navigate their recovery process.

At Providence Treatment, we strive to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for individuals in the LGBTQ+ community. From the moment clients enter our intake process to their therapy sessions and participation in group activities, we are dedicated to providing a safe and affirming space where LGBTQ+ individuals can feel comfortable and validated. Our staff members undergo specialized training to ensure they are sensitive to LGBTQ+ issues and are committed to delivering compassionate care to all clients, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. We are proud to be a place where everyone feels seen, heard, and supported on their journey to wellness.

As a treatment facility owned and operated by members of the LGBTQ+ community, Providence Treatment is firmly committed to serving and supporting the diverse needs of LGBTQ+ individuals. Our ownership structure allows us to infuse LGBTQ+ perspectives into all facets of our treatment programs, ensuring that they are specifically tailored to address the unique challenges and experiences of LGBTQ+ clients. This approach enables us to provide a more inclusive, understanding, and effective environment for individuals seeking support and care.

Comprehensive Addiction Treatment for Professionals in the LGBTQ+ Community

Providence Treatment is widely recognized for its exceptional addiction treatment programs that are specially designed to meet the needs of professionals, including pilots, medical professionals, lawyers, and others. Our specialized programs are specifically tailored to address the challenges faced by individuals in high-stress career paths. We provide evidence-based treatment modalities and a supportive group setting to ensure that our clients receive the best care and support on their journey to recovery.

Our treatment programs are designed to meet the strict requirements of professionals seeking care, including pilots who are required to adhere to stringent FAA regulations. Our programs have been carefully reviewed and approved to ensure that they meet these high standards, enabling professionals to access the treatment they need while continuing to fulfill their professional responsibilities.

Our treatment approach is designed to provide a supportive environment for our clients. We incorporate a cohort setting, allowing individuals to engage with others who are encountering similar challenges in their professional lives. This setting aims to build a sense of camaraderie and mutual understanding among peers, which in turn enriches the effectiveness of our therapy and support services.

Providence Treatment provides individuals with flexible options for their recovery journey, including a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). The length of the PHP program is assessed on a weekly basis to ensure that it aligns with the specific needs of the client. Additionally, the IOP sessions are conveniently scheduled in the evenings, allowing working professionals to participate without conflicting with their work commitments. These flexible options are designed to accommodate diverse schedules and individual needs, creating a supportive environment for those seeking treatment.

We advise all prospective clients to consider committing to a one-year treatment plan during the pre-admission intake process. This extended commitment is designed to provide comprehensive support and resources beyond the initial treatment phase, promoting sustained recovery and long-term wellness.
