Alcohol and other drug use disorders are increasing at an alarming rate with devastating consequences for individuals and their families. To respond to this growing medical need in our community, St. Elizabeth has established pathways to recovery across our healthcare system. Let us help you and/or your loved one address your substance use disorder and start your journey to wellness.
Recovery is possible!The question always is, where do I begin.
(Emotional and Mental Well-being)
A person’s emotional and mental well-being is often reflected in conditions such as anxiety, depression, and other psychological concerns.
Let us help you understand how your emotions impact behaviors and how they affect your overallhealth and well-being. Behavioral health is sometimes called mental health and often includes treatment of substance use disorders. Asking for support/help for these feelings and behaviors takes strength and courage. We can help you find a wellness plan that works for your unique needs.
Experiencing a medical emergency?
If yes, dial 911 or go to the nearest Emergency Department for medical care.Once stabilized, our care coordination team will help facilitate a referral to help you obtain the level of care needed to address your mental wellness.
Every path to mental wellness is different. Our uniquely trained staff will partner with you, your family, and other members of your healthcare team to create a patient-centered plan based on your specific needs.
St. Elizabeth has been at the forefront of confronting this community crisis alongside several valuable partners, leading important educational initiatives and awareness campaigns. Please visit our Activating Hope page for additional resources and awareness initiatives.
