Nearly half of people struggling with alcohol or drug addiction also live with a co-occurring psychiatric illness, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association. For some the drugs and alcohol perpetuate complications with mental illness and for others substance abuse masks it. Psychiatric illness requires specific intervention as do substance addictions. Treating one and not the other only causes the untreated illness to worsen and frankly makes it more difficult to manage the illness that is being addressed. It makes sense to intervene on both sides of the equation so you can live to your fullest healthy potential. Along with achieving stability in mental health and substance recovery, we help you gain the coping skills needed to deal with all the normal facets of life you do and may potentially encounter.
