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 - and 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 work 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.
"Written in plain language, Atkins provides a clinical road map beginning with an outline of key issues and ending with treatment planning. Atkins also does what most don't and that is to stress the importance of peer support, natural supports and self-help. This book is an important addition to any educator's and clinician's bookshelf." -- Eileen M. Russo, MA, LADC "Assistant Professor, Drug and Alcohol Recovery Counselor Program, Gateway Community College, New Haven, CT"
