The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal for funds to develop a substance abuse program for GLBT adolescents at the Gay and Lesbian Center of Greater Long Beach, CA. (GLCGLB).
Consultations with the GLCGLB staff and findings from the literature review highlighted the need for a substance abuse program for GLBT adolescents due to their risk and the little attention received in regards to treatment. The proposed program offers culturally relevant psychoeducation, prevention and treatment groups for GLBT adolescents. The goal of the proposed program is to decrease substance use among GLBT adolescents in Long Beach and dispel the stigma around addiction and treatment as well as help GLBT adolescents to recover from substance use-related illnesses. The identified funding source is the Christopher D. Smithers Foundation Inc. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
