It is estimated that between twenty percent to thirty percent of gay and transgender people abuse substances, compared to about nine percent of the general population (SAMHSA 2012). The Center aims to be a safe space for all LGBTQ community members and allies, including those who struggle with alcohol and substance abuse; to ensure this, we have established this policy governing alcohol and other substances at The Center. We appreciate your support in enforcing this policy.
