Founded in 1986, with over 14,000 graduates, PRIDE Institute is the nation’s first and leading provider of residential treatment programs and outpatient treatment programs devoted exclusively to treating substance abuse and mental health needs of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
