NEWS & INFORMATION: Mental Health and Drug Addiction

MORE INFORMATION & NEWS ON ADDICTION AND MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES…

At Illuminate Recovery and Wellness Centers we greatly value the importance on information sharing when it comes to matters of substance abuse and other addictions, as well as mental health disorders in general. Whether you’re doing research prior to choosing the right inpatient drug or alcohol rehab center, sober living home, therapist, etc., or even searching for reference material for a college term paper, you can never have too much practical information. Fortunately, with today’s technology and steady flow of emerging data throughout the web, we are able to merge our own information (upper portion of the page) with an embedded news feed (lower portion of the page) taken directly from NIDA (National Institute on Drug Abuse).

The links directly below will take you to a series of articles published by us, all of which relate to matters surrounding substance abuse & addictions, mental health and dual-diagnosis disorders. While the information provided below is NOT intended to officially diagnose any disease or illness, it has been published as accurately as possible.
