LGBTQ+ Respected Care

The journey to substance use and mental health recovery for those in the LGBTQ+ community often involves overcoming unique challenges linked to societal discrimination, stigma, and judgment. That’s why it’s important that we foster an environment where everyone feels seen, accepted, and respected.

You should never feel worried about sharing who you are, especially when looking for a space to heal. Sandstone Care ensures you are treated with the respect and understanding that you deserve.

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

By embracing diversity within our team, we ensure that our clients have the chance to connect with individuals who can empathize with and understand their unique experiences.

We are committed to fostering a culture of diversity, equity, & inclusion that not only enriches the lives of our employees, but also ensures the well-being and care of our clients, regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, age, ability, or background.

We believe that embracing diversity and promoting equity and inclusion are integral to our mission of providing high-quality behavioral health services. This DEI Charter outlines our core principles and commitments to uphold these values within our organization.
