Our 30 year old son has alcoholism, severe anxiety and early trauma history. He may be released from jail (DUI related) soon. Can anyone recommend a good inpatient facility that really takes the whole picture seriously? It seems every D&A program claims to deal with MH issues...but most don't really.

Can you tell me where your son is or will be located?
Hello, Alice, thanks for responding. He is located in Meadville, PA...30 miles south of Erie, 70 miles North of Pittsburgh.
Thank you, Melissa. I'm thrilled to have a recommendation! Peace and joy, Harry
A family member of mine has a dual diagnosis (co-occuring) and they are currently in in-patient treatment at Lifeline Connections in Vancouver, WA. They treat dual diagnoses. I think this is incredibly important to focus on the mental health aspect of substance abuse issues. Sending love and support! It’s really hard.
Thank you so much, Ariane! I totally agree. I believe what Lisa Najavits said in the material, essentially, that if you don't treat both in tandem, the one you don't treat will probably just get worse! I so appreciate your help! Love and peace! Harry
Is there a facility in the state of Georgia? I have a brother that is needing dual care. He's an alsoholic, PTSD, ADHD and possibly some other issues. He lives in Calhoun, GA.
