Co-Occurring Treatment


Substance use and mental health disorders are often co-occurring, meaning that clients with substance use may also meet criteria for mental health diagnoses such as depression, generalized anxiety, post-traumatic stress, or personality disorders.

LDR’s outpatient and DBT programs target substance use and integrate treatment of problematic substance use, as needed. Treating behavioral health disorders with integrated services is more effective to address the interconnected needs. It may also be more cost effective for clients.

Integrated treatment of substance use and mental health disorders is essential for clients to produce healing and create a life worth living.
