Treatments outcomes for severe mental illnesses, including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or major depression, are equal to or better than those achieved in physical health. Treatment approaches that are tailored to a patient’s substance abuse patterns and any co-occuring medical, psychiatric and social problems can lead to sustained recovery. The bottom line is that treatment works and people can recover to live fulfilling lives despite the experience of addiction or mental illness.
Paving the way to a brighter future.
The Adams, Lawrence, Scioto Counties Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services Board “Is the leader in promoting positive behavioral health by bringing together local partners to ensure quality mental health and addiction prevention, treatment and recovery supports are available to all residents.
