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.

Studies suggest that up to 25% of the LGBT population have difficulty controlling their drug or alcohol use. When you are recovering from addiction or mental health issues, you already have enough to deal with, your sexuality shouldn’t be viewed as another one of your problems.

At PRIDE Institute, gay is understood; being LGBT is the norm not the exception. Our highly trained and skilled staff understands your issues and will help you live a happy, healthy life as a proud LGBT person. We can offer you hope to overcome your addiction and live the life you want.
