Is there a drug and alcohol rehab for people who identify as non-binary?

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.

Added Pressures

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…

Exclusivity in an “All inclusive community” Where is the “T” in LBGT?

There is an old saying which goes “you aren’t counted in until someone counts you.”

It begs the question, who exactly is the one pointing the finger and counting? In 2018 the spotlight on the power structures in America has never been brighter. Our very own president is an outspoken, brash tyrannical criminal who has unapologetically declared a war on all marginalized individuals. And he sports a bad spray tan. So how do these mechanisms and power structures play out in the smaller scope?

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist. White men have seated the throne in our world for centuries. They are born with a brass ring before their feet even touch the ground. Anything feminine in our society is…

Why do People Think Drugs are Cool?

By Martel Bird

Navigating Recovery

Hanging out at a club on a Friday night and I’m just minding my own business. I don’t drink or “party” anymore, but I still like the nightlife for socializing. A young man asks me for a cigarette. I give him one. In return, he produces a little bag of white powder. “Want some Molly?” he asks. No, thanks. It’s a little surprising that somebody would offer a total stranger an illegal drug in return for bumming a cigarette.

At a bar where I was seeing my friend’s band play a couple of guys were smoking pot in the men’s bathroom. This is not really that unusual. Drugs are also often used out in the open at…

“Vogue” – Impoverished Women of Color & Trans Experience – My 1st Glimpse of Me

The basic human need to be watched was once satisfied by God.

In 1990 Madonna released her single “Vogue”. A window into a microcosm was opened for mainstream society peering at a staple and genius solely invented by the LBGTQ community. 1991’s Jennie Livingston’s documentary film “Paris is Burning” was the first time I witnessed a representation of people I found myself in and as a questioning teen it was…

Fentanyl in Florida

As of October 2017 a law has been in effect in Florida that allows for drug dealers to be charged with felony murder if synthetic drugs they sold led to a death by overdose. Over the past decade the trend of either mixing lethal synthetic opioids into heroin or selling the synthetics themselves as heroin has spurred a drastic rise in overdose deaths throughout the U.S.

These synthetic opioids are exponentially more powerful and dangerous…

West Virginia Opioid Crisis

Kermit is a dot on the map. It’s a town in West Virginia with a population of about 400 people. Over a two-year period, one pharmacy in Kermit was flooded with almost 9 million pills of addictive opioid painkillers from wholesale prescription drug distributors. Other small towns in West Virginia have also experienced receiving exorbitant amounts of powerful opioids from wholesale distributors. From 2006 to 2014, the Family Discount Pharmacy in Mount Gay-Shamrock received…
