In addition to one-on-one therapy and therapy groups—all facilitated by professional substance abuse counselors in confidential sessions—the Los Angeles LGBT Center is home to a wide variety of 12-step group meetings. We also host a number of drug and alcohol-free events throughout the year.
Anonymous online chat support: Every weekday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. you can chat online, completely anonymously, with a specially trained Center therapist for advice, recommendations, and support.
Individual therapy: The approach of our skilled therapists is to reduce your potential for harm by talking about costs/benefits of use and discussing plans to help you be safer. We will work with you to develop goals to reduce your use and strategies to minimize relapse. Most clients meet with us weekly at the McDonald/Wright building.
Methology: If you’re ready to reduce the harm caused by crystal meth, we’ll help you develop strategies and goals to reduce—or stop—your use of it. This free program is a mix of five group and individual sessions. Participants meet in a safe, non-judgmental space and all sessions are confidential. A brief entrance interview is required. Meets at McDonald/Wright building.
Evening outpatient program: This is an abstinence-based program that meets three nights a week and is a low-cost, intensive program for people with any substance abuse problem (i.e. alcohol, cannabis, crystal meth, crack, etc.). Meets at McDonald/Wright building.
Recovery Over Crystal Group and Men's Crystal Meth Recovery Group: This is for men who are ready to quit using meth and who are looking for the help they need to do that. Meets at McDonald/Wright building Monday and Wednesdays from 7 – 8:30 p.m.
Youth Drop-in Group: Specifically for people under 25-years-old who want to learn how to reduce the harm caused by their use of meth. This free support group meets weekly at the Youth Center on Highland.
Individual Therapy: One-on-one counseling focusing on substance abuse, costs/benefits of use, harm reduction vs. abstinence, safety planning, relapse prevention, etc.
