"In Its Own Words"

STATISTICS

Self Description:

"Lifeskills provides expert residential treatment for adults with co-occurring chemical dependency and psychiatric diagnoses."

Approach To Dual Diagnosis:

"We consider both of the co-occurring disorders to be primary diagnoses and treat both as such."


Family Program:
