Substance Abuse

Drug and alcohol abuse affects millions of families each year. People misuse substances for many reasons. Clients may use substances to self-medicate and cope with untreated trauma, mental health symptoms, or other underlying issues. Early intervention and treatment increase the effectiveness of recovery programs like the ones at Avery Lane.


Dual Diagnosis

Avery Lane treats primary and secondary mental health disorders. The programs address all underlying issues affecting recovery. Some mental health disorders are complex or involve severe symptoms. The care team tailors treatment plans to each client’s unique needs to ensure they receive the level of support they need to manage their condition. 


PTSD and Trauma

The correlation between trauma, mental health disorders, and substance abuse in women is becoming increasingly recognized. Most women struggling with mental health or substance abuse have a history of trauma. Avery Lane specializes in treating trauma in all forms, including physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional or verbal abuse, childhood abuse, and more. 


Grief and Loss

People experience grief after many life events. The loss of a loved one, moving to a new city, losing a job, and other significant changes may cause people to experience grief. The mental health treatment programs offered at Avery Lane help women experiencing profound loss and grief find healthy ways to cope and process their experiences.
