As part of their Road to Recovery series, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) just posted their August video on the topic of Treatment and Recovery in Behavioral Health for Americans With Disabilities. According to SAMHSA reports, nearly 16 percent of Americans have a disability that impacts their daily lives. Ironically, persons with physical and cognitive disabilities are more likely to have problems with substance use but they are also less likely to get treatment for it than their peers without a disability.
