Despite an increased awareness of co-occurring disorders, most current treatment paradigms still focus on one problem or the other, leaving much unassessed, unaddressed, or ignored. Until now - a revolutionary new book from Dr. Charles Atkins that can break the cycles of relapse for those intertwined with substance use and mental illness.
Co-Occurring Disorders is a guide to practical assessment and effective treatment approaches for working with any number of co-occurring disorders. This step-by-step approach, demonstrated through diverse case studies, gives you the tools you need to improve and track your clinical outcomes.
This is a must-have resource for both the rubber-meets-the-road clinician, who wants effective strategies and a clear direction for treatment and recovery, and the administrator who creates interventions at the system level with attention to regulatory and reimbursement demands. Also included is a comprehensive state-by-state Guide to Mental Health and Substance Abuse Agencies and Prescription Monitoring Programs.
