Identifying non-binary, may make the struggle with chemical dependency that much more difficult due to starting life in the social construct of a binary world. It can seem impossible to find non-binary drug & alcohol rehab to suit your needs. Fortunately, there is a rehab center that has a space for all genders, both non-binary and binary.
Being part of the LGBTQ community imposes a lot of pressures from outside social establishments. It is perfectly common to have a difficult time having your identity constantly questioned because you don’t identify by the strict two binary genders of male or female. It is common to not find members of the medical profession who really understand the situation you have been in your whole life. Often, going into a treatment facility that claims to help with your recovery ends up being in an environment where they try to enforce hetero-normative and cis-gender ideologies on you, which can hinder your recovery.
An Inclusive Culture
When you search for a non-binary drug & alcohol rehab center, you are also searching for a culture who understands you. Much of the world sees things from its own perspective, that of a majority view that you may not fit into. Instead of enforcing conformity, the right kind of treatment center focuses on helping you work with who you are and what you really want out of life. This is not a fairytale world, as this culture actually exists in an LGBTQIA inclusive and culturally aware rehabilitation center, Inspire Recovery in South Florida. In fact, this is the mainstream culture at Inspire. It’s so mainstream that stepping outside of Inspire, the binary world becomes hard to comprehend that it is the majority reality.
