We screen all persons entering services for the presence of mental health and substance abuse issues using evidence-based tools found in the Treatment Improvement Protocol 42 (TIP 42) published by the United States Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
If co-occurring issues are identified, River Edge believes that services should address needs at the same time, not in sequence. Therefore, we offer specialized dual diagnosis services.
