Providing hope and help...
All of us know someone whose life has been impacted by a mental health or substance use issue. In fact, one out of four Americans will experience a mental health concern during his or her lifetime. Mental illnesses cannot be overcome through willpower and are not related to a person's character or intelligence. They are medical conditions that disrupt a person's thinking, feeling, mood, daily functioning and ability to relate to others.
Addiction, also known as substance use disorders, involves craving for something intensely, loss of control over its use, and continuing involvement with it despite adverse consequences. People with a substance use disorder experience changes to the brain that impact the way it experiences pleasure, learning and motivation. Nearly one in seven Americans currently experience a substance use disorder.
