Meet Dawn, an Adult Substance Abuse client
Dawn explains her experience at BFCS

Counseling for substance abuse focuses on stopping or reducing drug use, adherence to a recovery plan, and addressing related areas of impaired functioning – such as employment status, illegal activity, and conflicts in family and social relationships.

Since people with substance abuse problems often have a co-occurring mental disorder, an integrated approach is used for screening, assessment and subsequent interventions that are consistent with diagnosis, and match levels of functioning and care.
