Behavioral & Medical Comorbidities
Substance use disorder is highly comorbid with other mental and medical conditions. At AIM Behavioral Health, we take a comprehensive approach to treating these disorders concurrently. The multidisciplinary team will assess the need to refer clients to other providers for comorbidities diagnose and treatment, including with the same facility in our Family Practice Suite (Ashland Integrative Medicine).
Behavioral & Medical Comorbidities is an integrated treatment of both mental health and substance abuse that requires a great deal of time, attention, and personal effort. For some, Behavioral & Medical Comorbidities is required to help patients return to a life of normalcy as they learn to address their co-occurring disorder properly. At AIM Behavioral Health, we make a point to provide you with the answers and tools to properly deal with your depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, or other mental illnesses without the use of drugs and alcohol. Some people are often afraid of the stigma associated with mental illness and being an addict or alcoholic, but once you own this, you can begin to move forward with your life. You should not feel like you are alone. In 2015 of the 20.2 million people with an admitted substance abuse disorder, nearly 8 million also had a mental health disorder.
Our staff has worked with many clients with co-occurring disorders that have developed before or after the onset of the addiction. We understand that entering a rehabilitation program is difficult, but it’s also necessary if you desire to finally embrace sobriety. Choosing a behavioral & medical comorbidities treatment plan at AIM Behavioral Health is the beginning of a journey towards recovery and stable mental health.
