Queer and trans folks have limited access to inclusive resources, yet we know that recovering from addiction is a critical act of self-preservation. In this session we will share our experiences with various treatment options that helped or hindered our process of getting clean. We will talk about rehab,12-step programs, and coming out as addicts. We will explore strategies for creating queer community without drugs/alcohol, and tools for navigating an intolerant recovery landscape. Come to connect with a new network of sober friends. Free vegan food will be served from Shangri-La.
