When Substance Use Disorder and Mental Health Collide

Breaking free from addiction and repairing all the damage it may have caused is one of the most challenging experiences a person can face. Imagine how much more difficult it can be when you also suffer from a mental health disorder. Being diagnosed with both a Substance Use Disorder and a mental health diagnosis can make the recovery journey even more difficult. At Parisi House, roughly 50% of our moms come to us with both. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, this statistic aligns with national averages. Upon entering our program, mothers who come to Parisi House for drug and alcohol treatment also receive a mental health evaluation. If they are diagnosed with a mental health disorder, we make sure they receive the additional support and services they need to recover from both successfully.
