Substance Abuse and Addiction Rates in the Transgender Community

June 19, 2020

Substance abuse and addiction rates in the transgender community are much higher than the cisgender community and 40% of transgender youth report being depressed, most, if not all the time. The transgender community has unique causes that could lead someone to drugs or alcohol. Thus it is important to raise awareness to these issues while also providing help to those in need.
