LGBTQ community members might have difficulty asking for help with a substance use disorder because they might fear judgment or discrimination from people who are in a position to help them. Often, people who identify as LGBTQ have had negative experiences with healthcare and other treatment providers, and they may fear similar encounters. Seeking help from rehabilitation centers with programs geared toward LGBTQ needs can make it easier for members of that community to get the support they need to overcome addiction.

It is here that recovery may begin. The philosophy of the staff at Inspire is a respect for the case that only when an individual feels they are in an environment where they can be completely comfortable and free to be themselves can healing of the deeply embedded disease of addiction take place. Unacceptable behaviors such as prejudice, discrimination and labeling are burdensome hindrances to the healing process and cannot be tolerated. Like the rest of the LGBTQ population, the lesbian community has been alarmingly under-served when it comes to treatment for drug addiction and alcoholism.
You should certainly still date even if you are not looking for a marriage partner. I also think that if marriage outside the covenant is a sin, it is not so grave as to be unforgivable. There is no question this is the true church. When my husband and I were sealed, I finally understood why my Dad had been stressing this to me my entire life. If she is still Mormon and you are not, she will always secretly hope that you convert, just like you will always secretly hope she leaves the church. Is this a sign of my own weakness.
I have this brain trapped after all these years. If you want to date a Mormon guy or girl, then the best way to meet singles is by visiting the Church. You will always be second place. As someone born and raised in the church this has been very difficult to moderate and there is some social pressure to become more involved. Just as secular marriages have problems, so do temple marriages. There will be struggles in marriage and childrearing whether or not he is a member. It is highly likely that she will pressure you to convert, and if you resist, she may resent you for being the barrier to her being sealed to her children. Is this a red flag or are we both just being stubborn. After moving in with him it has become painfully obvious I have a lot of personal improvements to make to meet his minimum expectations as a wife and mother. I ask myself that every day.
