5 Life Strategies for LGBTQ+ Individuals to Avoid Out-of-Control Addictive Behaviors

We have all heard how the opioid epidemic is ravaging communities. In 2014 alone, drug overdose was the leading cause of accidental death in the U.S., but prescription drugs are not the only killer, so is alcohol and illegal drugs.
