Where is the addiction treatment for our youth in Lewis County? Go to hospital they just want to send you to another hospital emergency room. Go to mental health center---they just want to tell you how long the waiting list is for your loved to get into one (about a year long). Where is the emergency help when they are in crises? No facility wants to help anyone with an addiction problem. No wonder so much violence and young lives ending in WV due to addiction no emergency help when you need it NOW!! They run you in circles you are worn out to start with dealing with the problem.

Its interesting to look at all the statistics of what age groups start to have mental health and addiction issues, they're getting younger and younger.http://www.westbridge. org/about_westBridge/Co-occurr ingMentalIllnessandSubstanceUs e.html

You can contact United Summit Center and they can referr to Valley Mental Health Crisis Unit. Although you must be age 18. If your loved on is younger than that I would personally recommend Highland Hospial in Charleston WV. RIver Park Hospital in Hunington has a crisi unit as well. I will continue to try and provide you with contact if you post what you specially need. This is for sure a battle and real need in our county. IN other counties you can count on your local professional for assistance but good luck with that.
