GENDER TRANSITIONING IN RECOVERY
The desire to market to an LGBTQ community dealing with deadly substance abuse issues is increasing; however, the necessary expertise and familiarity with the community is not growing at the same pace.
Dr. Ronaye Calvert
Executive Director of REVIVE Detox, REVIVE Detox Los Angeles
A deeply personal exploration of opiate and heroin addiction through a cinéma vérité style that drops you directly into the lives of an addict in recovery, a couple trying to get clean, a family grieving the loss of their son, and an Emergency Room Physician trying to save one patient at time. Screening at the Laemmle’s NOHO 7 in North Hollywood on 10/23/17 at 1pm for the Reel Recovery Film Festival. It is also currently streaming on Hulu right now.
THE FIGHT – SOCAL’S LGBTQ MONTHLY MAGAZINE features Dr. Calvert’s article about GENDER TRANSITIONING IN RECOVERY. On its September 2017 issue, THE FIGHT’s editorial pages features this article where Dr. Calvert describes how without an easy check-in-the-box to apply, many substance abuse facilities simply don’t know what to do with a transitioning individual.
