LGBT friendly treatment

Personalised treatment

Substance abuse and addiction is higher among the LGBT community and we are aware the particular needs of LGBT individuals can make a difference in long-term recovery. So we have created addiction treatment programs that provide the support needed to help overcome specific issues you may deal with during and after rehab.

Dual diagnosis experts

LGBT individuals who have substance abuse issues are often also dealing with issues of depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues. We provide specialist programs to treat these other issues as well as the substance abuse and addiction issue. This can help ensure you have all the tools you need to manage your recovery after rehab.

100% judgement and stigma-free

The Hader Clinic is a 100% stigma-free drug and alcohol rehabilitation clinic. We believe everyone deserves the best addiction treatment in an environment that they feel is safe and welcoming. Addiction does not discriminate, nor do we. We make sure you are given respect and understand your identity is important to your recovery.
