Substance abuse issues can come with even more stigma than mental health concerns, and it is very common that individuals with substance abuse challenges are also suffering from co-occurring disorders. At Columbia Associates, we can help with mental health issues for everyone, including those who are experiencing challenges with addictive behaviors. Our teams do not offer medication-assisted treatment options but we do offer therapeutic and psychiatric services that can help manage the symptoms associated with co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders. 

Call Columbia Associates at 703.682.8208 to learn more.

Co-Occurring disorders

Adults and adolescents alike often self-medicate with drugs and alcohol to cope with depression, anxiety, stress, and mood instability. Teens who are struggling with depression are more than twice as likely as teens who are not struggling with their mental health to use marijuana, and 70% of kids 12 and older who abuse pain medications say they get them from a friend or relative. 

Addressing the mental health factors that contribute to substance abuse issues can be a key part of successful recovery. Whether you are early on in recovery or have been in the recovery process for years, our teams can help to support your mental health journey.

Working with outside providers

Substance abuse treatment often involves working with many treatment teams. At Columbia Associates, we have extensive experience collaborating with other providers so that your treatment can be collaborative and supportive.
