This narrative study sought to document the substance abuse treatment experiences of transgender people. Individual interviews were conducted with eight participants, and the data were transcribed and analyzed. Participant interviews were discussed. Thirteen themes emerge from the interviews: Making Meaning of Addiction, Considering Discrimination, Additional Services, Provider Relationships, Program Community, Community Involvement, Recovery Approach, Self-Protection, Seeking Sobriety, Family Relationships, Other Self-Care, Feelings of Isolation, and Program Policies. Recommendations for substance abuse treatment programs that emerge from participant experiences and data analysis are put forth.
