Those who are dealing with an underlying mental health disorder are four times more likely to become reliant on drugs or alcohol. Substance abuse is much more common in those that experience a mental health disorder in their lifetime than those who do not. Because of this increased risk of substance abuse, it is important for those with co-occurring disorders to find quality integrated treatment.
The family’s strengths and resources are utilized in our therapeutic approach as we help family members and loved ones develop healthy coping strategies for maintaining equilibrium in the household. Our Family Systems Model of therapy looks at the dysfunctional behaviors a family unit has adopted as a result of their loved one’s substance abuse and helps to identify healthy ways to interact that respect the needs of everyone involved. This includes individual family therapy as well as a weekly multi-family group.
