Virginia Outpatient Center

What We Treat

At our Reston, Virginia outpatient office we treat a wide range of substance use and mental health challenges for teens and young adults.

Our mood disorder track helps our clients struggling with depression, trauma, anxiety, and more.

Our substance use includes treatment for alcohol, marijuana, heroin, and opiates.

Also, we believe that substance use and mental health issues go hand in hand, which is why we are a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder program. We have a holistic, whole-person approach when it comes to treating teens and young adults who are struggling.

Alcohol & Substance Use

Experimenting with alcohol can begin during adolescence, with pressure to socialize and be like the in crowd, it’s normal to try alcohol. However, alcohol becomes a problem when consuming it becomes a coping skill to deal with painful emotions.

Additionally, we treat a variety of substance use disorders, including opiates, marijuana, prescription drugs, and stimulants. Much like alcohol, one could start using a drug socially, but it can quickly turn into a problem.

Young Adults & Alcohol

Studies have found that binge drinking & heavy alcohol use are problematic for young adults.

Young Adults & Opioids

Teens & Alcohol

Alcohol can be used to self-medicate an underlying mental health issue or traumatic event.

Teens and Marijuana

Frequent marijuana use can negatively impact their emotional regulation, thinking abilities, and physical health.

Teens & Stimulants

Stimulants might be used to accomplish more, but these substances can be harmful and addictive when misused.

Treating Mental Health

Not only are we experts at treating substance and alcohol use, but we believe that we need to address underlying mental health issues as part of a recovery plan. Our doctors and therapists have mental health training and experience to treat depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, and mood disorders.

We frequently see our clients struggling with an underlying mental health issue who are using alcohol or substances to self medicate. Conversely, many people seek help for mental health disorders, not fully comprehending that their substance use may be greatly contributing to their mental health in a negative way.
