Dealing with alcoholism or drug dependence is never easy, and it is even
more difficult when you are also struggling with mental health problems.
When a person has both a drug, alcohol problem and a mental health issue
- such as depression, bipolar disorder or anxiety - it is called a co-occurring
disorder or dual diagnosis. However, there are treatments that can help.
At Mission Hospital, we provide research-based treatment, support, and
additional resources to help adolescents and their families create a life
that is both rewarding and gratifying.
