Addiction Statistics of the LGBTQ Community

The exact percentage of LGBTQ Americans who use drugs is unknown because not all data-gathering institutions ask questions about sexual orientation on their surveys. However, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

  • Gay and bisexual men use methamphetamine at a rate seventy percent higher than other groups, including heterosexual women and men.
  • CDC research reveals that among past-year drinkers, 37% of self-identified gay or bisexual males reported heavy alcohol consumption, which is defined as two or more drinks per day, compared with just 13% of straight male respondents.
  • 43% of lesbians describe themselves as current drinkers, while 22% report binging behavior.
