This program allows time to fully explore mood (e.g. depression, bipolar disorder) and/or anxiety disorders and, where applicable, the intersection of these in combination with substance use issues.
Co-occurring disorders, otherwise known as ‘concurrent disorders,’ is a term used to describe when someone is experiencing symptoms of a mental health condition such as depression, anxiety, or PTSD along with a problematic substance use disorder at the same time. Though it can be challenging to identify and treat co-occurring disorders, and some people focus on ‘what came first,’ it is known that treatment is most successful when the issues are addressed simultaneously rather than one at a time.
Often with co-occurring disorders, when a mental health issue goes untreated, substance use increases and vice versa. Our team specializes in treating co-occurring mental health and substance use challenges so you can get back to school, work, and life.
Highly structured curriculums, including skills development and symptom reduction for depression and/or anxiety, as well as abstinence from drugs/alcohol to help patients progress in long-term recovery.

Often co-occurring disorders affect each other because substance use increases when a mental health issue goes untreated and vice versa. The symptoms of mental health issues combined with increased substance use may interfere with an individual’s ability to function at work or school, maintain relationships, handle difficult situations, or maintain a stable home life.
