Did you know that 60% of teens who struggle with their mental health are also confronting addiction? It’s true! Across the lifespan, it’s common for those with mental illness to self-medicate with substances. And, once the two issues begin to commingle, it becomes a vicious cycle, making recovery difficult for those afflicted.
That’s why we all have a responsibility to promote wellness in the youth and families we serve. We must make referrals to substance use services when we suspect a teen has a problem.
However, in many communities, substance use services can be hard to come by. But, have no fear! We offer addiction support in-house to Montana kids! We currently have LACs in our Boulder, Butte, Billings, Missoula, Bozeman, Great Falls, and Kalispell locations. For kids outside those communities, we provide services anywhere across the state, via WebEx!
Remember, Montana kids depend on you to get them the support they need to be resilient and thrive. Call us today at 1-406-245-6539 or contact us online to learn more about how you can get a child involved in our services.
