Are you or your child facing problems such as:
Millions of Americans who seek help each year face both substance use and mental heath issues. This is known as having a Co-occurring Disorder (COD).
Youth with COD are at risk for truancy, poor performance, drop-out or behavioral problems that result in school suspension and expulsion. Children in families affected by alcohol abuse are at increased risk for physical illness and injury, and alcoholism or alcohol abuse in later life.
For a full recovery, treatment for both the mental illness and the substance abuse is needed simultaneously. Most often this treatment can be provided here. If not, after the initial assessment, our staff will determine the best course of treatment. In some instances, this could be a referral to another agency.
Among the many ways that we are able to treat co-occurring disorder is an intensive, home-based treatment approach that serves youth who suffer from both substance abuse and serious emotional problems. The ICT team is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to prevent or stabilize a crisis. Youth, family and members of their support network meet 2-4 times per week with their therapist for 3-6 months until individual goals are met. We offer flexible evening appointments and will work around your family’s schedule. We also will meet you and your child at home, school, in court, in detention or at any other appropriate location.
