Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) May 15, 2014
According to the National Association of Mental Illness, studies show that more than 50 percent of adolescents with a substance use disorder also have a diagnosable mental illness.
Depression and anxiety in teens are two of the more common co-occurring mental disorders. Some teens may even suffer from bipolar disorder, oppositional defiance disorder (ODD) or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) along with their substance abuse issues.
Treating both substance abuse and mental illness in teens is quite the challenge. It’s not always clear as to which problem comes first or causes the other to occur. Therefore, mental illness often goes under the radar or is misdiagnosed and it’s often mistreated separately from the substance abuse.
However, the mental health professionals at Ohio Teen Rehab-Cleveland are now providing evidenced-based, integrated treatment to focus on the specific needs of adolescents. At Ohio Teen Rehab-Cleveland, board-certified medical staff, nurses, and licensed therapists focus on a combination of treatment methods including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), stress management, individual, group, and family therapy and academic and life-skills training.
Ohio Teen Rehab is an accredited facility by the Joint Commission. They provide treatment for Cleveland teens, ages 14-17 who are struggling with substance abuse, behavioral and/or mental health disorders.
