According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), more than 8.9 million people in the US suffer from co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders; often called “dual diagnoses.” Only about 7% of these individuals receive treatment for both illnesses and over half never receive any treatment. Though HopeWay is a not primary addiction treatment center, substance use disorder commonly accompanies a psychiatric diagnosis. HopeWay's mission is to make HOPE tangible by inspiring mental wellness for all. They fill the gap in mental healthcare by caring for adults, 18 and older, as they navigate the transition from hospital to home. HopeWay’s holistic model of treatment, which is grounded in science, addresses the medical, psychological and emotional needs of clients as they equip them with the tools they need to live a successful and independent life.
