National Substance Abuse Prevention Month
October is National Substance Abuse Prevention Month. More than 25% of people who are living with a mental health condition also experience substance use disorder. These co-existing conditions often cause individuals to feel trapped and hopeless. We strive to show people experiencing these conditions, the loved ones who are affected, and the community as a whole there is hope. Below are some educational resources about these two conditions that may shed light on the symptoms, causes and treatment options.
If you or someone you care about needs help managing mental health or substance use issues, contact an Oceans Hospital near you.
