Following up on our June 8, 2023 program, “Navigating the Maze of Substance Use & Mental Health”
Our presenters addressed the co-occurrence of mental health challenges and substance use disorders. People addicted to drugs are roughly twice as likely to suffer from mood and anxiety disorders, with the reverse also true.
Both mental health and substance use disorders are treatable. We explored paths to recovery from co-occurring disorders, which can include integrated approaches and ongoing care.
The recording will be available soon!

Following Up on the July 14, 2020 Program
People addicted to drugs are roughly twice as likely to suffer from mood and anxiety disorders, with the reverse also true.
We explored paths to recovery from co-occurring disorders, which can be difficult to diagnose due to the complexity of symptoms, as both may vary in severity. In many cases, people receive treatment for one disorder while the other disorder remains untreated. We heard from treatment professionals, a young person in recovery, and a family member whose loved one is in recovery from co-occurring disorders.
