At UR, our clinicians understand that substance use disorders are often symptomatic of an underlying trauma or mental health issue. We want to understand the complex factors that drive addictive and compulsive behaviors, and we want to work with individuals on developing the insight, strategies, and skills it takes to address co-occurring disorders.
When a co-occurring disorder such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, bipolar and borderline personality disorder is present, we work to address the whole person, approach the problem from a medical, spiritual, and psychological perspective. We approach the problem from a medical and psychological perspective by providing the counseling, assistance, and support that our clients deserve. This will allow them to face their experience, regulate their moods, and manage their lives without the denial, avoidance, and stigma that come from substance use or a mental illness.
