Understanding Co-occurring, where it begins, and how it grows.

  • When a mental health issue exists, whether diagnosed or not, we will learn how we are at risk of substance addiction.
  • And why a substance abuse addiction can trigger a mental health issue.
  • Often youth using drugs and alcohol are too young to understand or believe they are at risk of addiction.
  • Remember, there is no getting off this road once you have gone down it. You may be able to control your addiction/mental health issue, but it will always be with you, waiting for an opportunity to knock you off the wellness wagon.
