dc.description.abstract Sexual minorities may have a higher risk of substance abuse behaviors in comparison to heterosexuals. This can, at least in part, be contributed to sexual minorities' battles pertaining to discrimination, recognition, legal rights, and life in a world in which the majority is non-LGBTQ. When one member in the relationship struggles with substance abuse, there may be some common problems that lead to marital dissatisfaction. Common problems that are contributors to distress in relationships include an unsatisfying sex life, verbal, physical, and sexual aggression and divorce. Problems with drinking may also cause financial issues, employment instability, embarrassing intoxicated moments, abuse, and negative interactions with children. The purpose of this graduate project is to address the needs of sexual minorities in same-sex couples that are rebuilding their relationship post-addiction. Due to the added stressors and discrimination same-sex couples may face, it is vital to process the variables that may contribute to substance abuse during counseling, while also improving relational functioning. The project is a multi-couple group, which will utilize components of BCT and EFT to assist the same-sex couples in rebuilding their relationship after substance abuse. en
