Co-Occurring Disorders: Going Beyond the Boundaries of Diagnosis

ID: 5224

We used to call individuals with mental illness and co-occurring substance use disorders a "special" population, but over the years we have become aware that the prevalence is so great that they are our population. This workshop is designed for helping professionals who may need hope, understanding and methods for dealing with the most difficult of behaviors. An overview of the development of disorders, the interrelationship of mental illness and substance use, levels of severity, and how to sort through symptoms of each disorder will be explored. We will explore how attention to diagnosis, rather than attention to the total person can complicate engagement and treatment. This workshop will provide underlying principles for assessment, diagnosis, treatment and recovery support that can be provided in any agency in any system.
