WHAT WE TREAT
We treat substance abuse issues & co-occurring mental healt...h disorders
Behavioral health issues are those that can be amended when people change their day-to-day habits. Substance abuse and addiction issues are certainly part of the behavioral health model, and in 2012 alone, close to 2 million people enrolled in treatment facilities due to substance abuse, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
That means there are people out there just like you who are dealing with addictions and working hard to get better. But there are also others out there who are still mired in addiction habits and who aren’t quite ready to start the work of recovery.
A study in the Canadian Journal of Psychiatry suggests that the prevalence of co-occurring disorders is about 18.5 percent in addiction treatment facilities. For people with these conditions, the lessons need to come on two fronts. They’ll need to know about the addiction, about the mental health issue, and about how the two interact.
That’s an area in which Advanced Recovery Systems really excels. As an evidence-based organization focused on co-occurring treatment, we can provide care that can transform even the toughest of cases.
Our evidence-based approach applies to eating disorders as well. According to ANAD, over 24 million people suffer from an eating disorder. People with these concerns often need very specialized care that incorporates both medical and mental health interventions, but only 35 percent of people with eating disorders get care in a specialized treatment facility, per ANAD. As the reach of Advanced Recovery System expands, that number may go down.
