There is an undeniable link between mental illness and substance abuse. Those who suffer from mental illness like Bi-polar disorder or schizophrenia are far more likely to have substance abuse issues, especially when it comes to alcohol and nicotine.
As a result of such a strong connection between substance addiction and mental illness, we know the importance of treating both in order to achieve a successful outcome. If an underlying mental illness is left untreated, you’ll find it much more difficult to successfully and permanently heal from drug or alcohol addiction. Our goal is for you to succeed and live a whole and healthy life. In order to do this, we give you the coping skills you need as well as a treatment plan to manage any underlying psychiatric disorders that are interacting with your addiction.
