Title: Residential treatment for LGBTI clients at resort 12 in Thailand
Biography: Stuart Fenton
Recent studies have shown that LGBTI clients who were in treatment with a specialized program tailored had much higher rates of abstinence once they completed the program than those who were not in treatment for LGBTI individuals. In different research it was found that 57% of the gay and bisexual participants in their particular study said that they thought their sexual orientation had negatively affected their treatment experience. Gay and bisexual men were less likely to complete their treatment programs than heterosexual men and were more likely to have left treatment because their needs were not being met. This presentation guides the audience through the reasoning for a LGBTI specific treatment facility and the best clinical practice approaches we are integrating here to achieve successful outcomes from individuals struggling with addiction, alcoholism and other problematic conditions.
