Brigid McBride is the Outpatient Substance Use Disorder Program Coordinator at West Central Family and Counseling. Her and her team know treating a mental health condition without addressing the problem of substance abuse, or vice versa, often results in self-destructive behavior. Recently, West Central Family and Counseling launched a substance abuse counseling program with an emphasis on mental health, to partner with medication assistance programs in the Springfield area. Brigid and I discuss addiction, depression, and how getting the right help can make a world of difference.
