Homewood has extensive experience in treating complex and co-occurring disorders. Often, individuals may suffer from more than one condition, which can complicate recovery if not identified and addressed. Our clinical approach is designed to help build an understanding of how different issues may affect the individual and employ evidence-based treatment that provides the foundation, knowledge and tools necessary to address these conditions and help build the skills required to sustain long-term recovery.
Homewood Health recognizes that family and friends are an important part of a patient’s social support system, and family/friend involvement is determined based on the patient’s needs.
If you feel that someone’s mental health issue or substance use is impacting their ability to function well, there are ways to initiate the conversation and show that you care.
