If you are struggling with substance use and mental health disorders during this public health emergency, you may feel trapped. You may feel trapped in your home. You may feel trapped in an endless string of online meetings. You may feel trapped in a job that makes you feel unsafe at this time.
Feeling Boxed In
And you may feel trapped by your relationship with drugs or alcohol. Or you may feel trapped by a mental health disorder like anxiety, depression, and more. Worst case, you may feel trapped by both—co-occurring disorders that are threatening your wellbeing right now. Given all the restrictions currently impacting our day to day activities, it may feel like there is absolutely no way out of these traps.
We have good news. You do not have to feel trapped by substance use and mental health disorders. Help is available right now in a variety of forms, including telehealth. Even in this moment, Peak View Behavioral Health is prepared to help you work toward sobriety and/or manage your mental health.
Here are some options to help you move beyond that trapped feeling and toward wellbeing.
