Specialized, combined treatment for dual-diagnosis teens and young adults

Providing real hope for recovery from substance use and mental health disorders

The journey to adulthood can be a confusing time. It’s a time of dramatic brain development, which makes young people more vulnerable to both substance use and mental health disorders. Alcohol and substance abuse commonly co-occur with mood, anxiety or other mental health disorders. And these diagnoses are particularly disruptive and harmful in children, teens and young adults.

At Rosecrance, we offer specialized treatment for adolescents ands young adults age 12 to 20 who have a dual diagnosis of substance use and mental health disorders. With heartfelt compassion and a century-long devotion to caring for adolescents, we’ve developed this specialized program to give your child a roadmap toward lasting recovery and a productive, fulfilling life beyond treatment.

Trust an experienced leader in both substance use and mental health treatment

Founded to care for children in 1916, Rosecrance is now a leader in the treatment of substance abuse, including recognition for its special focus on and commitment to recovery for children, teens and young adults. More than a decade ago, we extended our passion for recovery to include young people with mental health disorders.

Ever since, our team has expanded, incorporating experienced, leading mental health organizations and developing individualized programs to offer young people and their families the best opportunity for lasting recovery.

Treating co-occurring conditions together for accelerated progress

The primary difference Rosecrance offers families like yours dealing with dual diagnoses is that we provide combined treatment. While mental health disorders and substance abuse are so often related and intertwined, finding help for both simultaneously is not always easy. At Rosecrance, our focus is recovery. And we know from experience that the concept of recovery is lifelong, and it applies as much to mental health disorders as to substance use disorders.

Driven by compassion for your family and dedication to your loved one’s lasting recovery, we treat these disorders together. While they are not the same, they also are not separate. And in both cases, our goals are the same.

The goals of combined treatment for mental health and substance use disorders

  • For patients to have a form of recovery that lets them live the best life possible.
  • To help patients build critical skills.
  • To make positive, beneficial changes within the family.
  • To empower patients with opportunity and the skills to handle life’s challenges.

Individualized care for your unique needs and lasting recovery

To achieve these goals, our team at Rosecrance’s Griffin-Williamson campus takes a practical, honest approach born of compassion and dedication. Starting with a highly detailed, individualized assessment, we provide genuine help so your family can reclaim its relationships—and its hope.

A personalized recovery plan will help your loved one to learn healthy behaviors and prepare for life beyond treatment. Our team of specialists bases your individualized treatment on proven outcomes and the latest thinking in behavioral health. Our continuum of care extends beyond treatment so you and your loved one have access to resources when you need them.

A variety of approaches to meet any need
