Often, adults in recovery may have limited understanding of the LGBTQ+ community and how sexual minority status may relate to drug addiction. It becomes a struggle when individuals lack awareness because one may not realize the negative effects it has on those who have struggled or are struggling with coming out which may lead to substance abuse, as well. To address the limited understanding, I created a 3-session curriculum about drug use and some obstacles that members of the LGBTQ+ community face.
