Why St. Christopher's

The term co-occurring simply means the patient has an addiction or substance use disorder and a mental health disorder. St. Christopher's offers specialized care for patients suffering with co-occurring disorders. Our therapeutic modalities for treating co-occurring disorders and substance use disorders concurrently give our patients the best chance for success.


Substance use disorder often coincides with other mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, hopelessness, mood instability, and trauma.  These can affect multiple areas of life including relationships, employment, family dynamics, education and finances. Unfortunately, many drug rehab facilities don’t have the resources or the personnel to handle clients with psychiatric disorders.  However, St. Christopher’s provides progressive, cutting-edge treatment including a comprehensive assessment with our multi-disciplinary team and holistic programming to create a success plan for long term recovery. 

Treatment for co-occurring disorders combines multiple modalities to provide the structure and development needed for those suffering from addiction, mental health disorders, and substance use disorders.
