Behavioral Health and Addiction

Kasey Stark, MSW, CAP, Treatment Placement Specialist – Acadia Healthcare and Gabriela Reyes, Marriage Family Therapist have an in-depth discussion about treatment programs and their role in assisting individuals struggling with behavioral health and addiction.

In particular, they discuss substance abuse, signs to be aware of if a friend or family member has a substance use disorder, and how treatment centers can provide the help they need for a life of recovery.  Additionally, they discuss how mental health providers can work closely with programs, like those in Acadia Healthcare’s network, to not only have their loved ones assessed and set up with a personalized treatment plan, but to also coordinate post-treatment care.
