Co-occurring Disorders

Integrating mental health and substance use treatment

Description

Co-occurring psychiatric and substance use disorders can complicate treatment and many issues go unmanaged. Without integrated care people are also likely to develop medical concerns like diabetes or chronic pain. This presents a difficult treatment problem for professionals to solve and family members to navigate, as it can be difficult to know the best place to start. This class presents an integrated care approach using the Stages of Change model.

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize the importance of adopting an integrated approach

  • Examine the neurobiology and risk factors of co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders

  • Acquire a more complex understanding and application of the Stages of Change

  • Explore different models and approaches to treatment of co-occurring disorders through scenario work
