More than half of all people ever diagnosed with an alcohol or other drug addiction also experienced a mental disorder at some time in their lives (52%). Of those with a history of drug abuse or dependence, 59% also experienced a mental disorder. Untreated mental health problems can lead to addiction when alcohol or other drugs were used to deal with symptoms just as anxiety and depression may develop because of stress from broken relationships, lost employments, and other situations directly related to a drug-using lifestyle. Treating co-occurring disorders at the same time builds a foundation for lasting recovery.

Your Child or Teen
Casual drug use can quickly turn into abuse, dependence and addiction. Some drugs can cause addiction after the first use so even if you believe your child or teen is “experimenting,” take action right away before there’s an accident, legal trouble or serious injury.
Frontier Health’s caring, trained staff are here to help you take action so your child or teen can begin and maintain recovery. We provide comprehensive intensive outpatient and other outpatient treatment at a location close to your home. We’re here to answer your questions and direct you to the level of care your child or teen needs.
If you, your child, or someone you know is in danger of overdose or suicide, go to the nearest emergency room, or call 911. If life just doesn’t feel worth living and you don’t know how to cope, or you’re experiencing a mental health emergency, call Crisis at (877) 928-9062 for the help you need.
