The term “dual diagnosis” describes the clinically challenging comorbidity of a substance use disorder (SUD) along with another major mental illness. Evidence-based psychotherapies for addiction, including motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral therapy, relapse prevention, contingency management, skills training, and/or case management, are a necessity and must be balanced with rational and appropriate pharmacotherapy targeting both the SUD as well as the other disorder. Treating patients with co-occurring disorders (CODs) within integrated dual-disorder treatment (IDDT) programs sounds straightforward. However, implementing evidence-based “best practice” treatment is a significant challenge in the real world for several reasons. In this webinar, we will explore the challenges of working with a dual-diagnosed client from accurate diagnosing to determining the best integrated dual-diagnosis treatment (IDDT) plan, and the challenges in the ‘real world’ that these clients face to managing their diagnoses.

Review “real world” challenges that dually diagnosed clients face in recovery and mental health management.
