The Truth Shall Set You Free –
May 12, 2020 – The impact of the coronavirus is being felt in nearly every aspect of daily life, but it’s not the only health crisis people are facing.
“Addiction can kill you as well,” said Aaron Weiner, director of addiction services at Naperville-based Linden Oaks Behavioral Health. “And addiction can grow if it’s not treated.”
Weiner says Linden Oaks is “providing a necessary service” during the pandemic, and while there is concern over COVID-19, “it’s not like all the other problems cease to exist.”
Addiction services at the facility are now being provided virtually, including one-on-one and group sessions.
Maintaining those sessions is critical to a person’s recovery, Weiner said, but being at home all the time may not be the best thing for everyone who struggles with addiction.
