Support for mental health and substance abuse concerns at Erlanger Behavioral Health Hospital
Often, individuals who are struggling with acute mental illness also suffer from chemical dependency issues at the same time. For some, ongoing untreated substance abuse can result in painful psychiatric challenges. For others, substance abuse may be a misguided attempt to numb the pain of an untreated mental health concern. In any case, if you or a loved one is struggling with mental illness and substance abuse simultaneously, a dual diagnosis program is an ideal setting in which to recover. This form of comprehensive treatment allows participants to address the full spectrum of their symptoms, thus fostering healing on a deeper level.
