At Pride Institute, gay is understood. As a gay drug rehab and gay detox center, you will be with a group of like-minded people. LGBT is the norm here, not the exception. At PRIDE we provide mental health treatment services exclusively to the LGBT community. Our highly trained and skilled staff understands your issues and teaches you how to live a happy, healthy life.
Pride Institute of Florida at Fort Lauderdale Hospital was founded in 1986. With over 10,000 graduates, Pride Institute is the nation’s first and leading provider of in-patient and out-patient programs devoted exclusively to treating the mental health and drug addiction needs of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) 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.
We are experienced specialists in drug and alcohol rehab, depression, anxiety and HIV/AIDS-related stress and grief. We also specialize in medical drug and alcohol detox and offer a variety of detox programs for both.
Pride Institute of Florida is fully accredited for chemical dependency and mental health treatment. Rehab programs at Pride Institute accept a wide variety of insurance plans, including state and federal assistance.
