Lesbian and Bisexual Women at Elevated Risk of Problem Drinking but Lack Appropriate, Effective Treatment Options
Research Society on Alcoholism

Many lesbian and bisexual women lack access to culturally sensitive and effective alcohol and mental health treatments, according to a new study. The findings suggest that sexual minority women (SMW), especially younger women, women of color, and those with low incomes, face multiple barriers to addressing problematic alcohol use.

This partly reflects the impact of discrimination and its associated stress. Yet SMW appear relatively unlikely to seek help, and when they do, are less satisfied with it, for reasons including a lack of identity-affirming care and provider bias. Better understanding of SMW’s recognition of alcohol problems, motivation to reduce drinking, and treatment experiences — important influences on outcomes — as well as how their alcohol experiences vary by demographic characteristics can potentially help identify women at risk and in
