Issues & Disorders We Work with and Help Place

The team of Treatment Placement Specialists® can work with professionals who have patients in their care suffering from any number of concerns, or for individuals who are suffering from such themselves. These include trauma, mental health issues, pain management, eating disorders, substance abuse and co-occurring issues.

Complex Pain Issues & Pain Management

As an initiative of Acadia Healthcare, the leader of behavioral health services in the world, the TPS team is proud to be able to offer professional referents & individuals access to treatment for complex pain and pain management. With the opioid epidemic at an all-time high and individuals looking for alternative ways to manage their physical pain, the Treatment Placement Specialists® team is equipped to work with an individual seeking recovery from this turmoil and disruption in their life.

Co-Occurring Treatment for Dual Diagnosis

It is common for individuals who are battling a mental health disorder to simultaneously struggle with a co-occurring substance use disorder. For this reason, the TPS team can help clients find comprehensive dual diagnosis treatment so that both concerns can be treated.
