Mental Illness

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.
