Recognizing and Addressing Co-Occurring Disorders

If you have 20 people you are working with who are diagnosed with just a mental illness, at least half of them have, or have had at some time in their life, a co-occurring substance use disorder. The same for those of you working in the addictions field. Half of your clients have a mental illness diagnosis. This OnDemand Webinar will help you begin to identify those that have a co-occurring disorder and give you some basic information and tools to start to address the substance use. We all know that change is difficult and knowing what to do when someone isn’t ready to change is a challenge. This OnDemand Webinar will address some basic strategies to help a client move forward in the change process.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to discuss integrated treatment for co-occurring disorders.
  • You will be able to identify the first stages of assessment.
  • You will be able to review basic strategies that help clients move forward in the change process.
