Publisher Description

Your blueprint to develop and manage effective co-occurring treatment programs!

Sequential or parallel treatments for co-occurring disorders are much less effective than a quality co-occurring treatment program. Most mental health and substance abuse professionals know how to provide an effective program for individuals with a substance use or mental health disorder, but few are aware of the issues involved in providing services for those with dual diagnosis. Designing, Implementing, and Managing Treatment Services for Individuals with Co-Occurring Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders: Blueprints for Action gives you with the tools you need to develop an effective program specific to co-occurring treatment as well as to implement and manage the program's services.

Author Edward Hendrickson shares his knowledge from over two decades of developing and implementing co-occurring treatment services. Designing, Implementing, and Managing Treatment Services for Individuals with Co-Occurring Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders: Blueprints for Action is thorough, insightful, and informative, covering all facets of plan and execution, helping you form strategies to address a co-occurring treatment program’s unique issues. The book examines the historical basis of the current dual treatment system to provide the philosophical tenets the program must follow and the essential qualities for an effective treatment program. It explores the issues in creating a new program or expanding an existing one, as well as the mechanics of day-to-day management. Helpful appendices, tables, and case examples illustrate the discussion.

Designing, Implementing, and Managing Treatment Services for Individuals with Co-Occurring Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders: Blueprints for Action discusses:
developing the necessary infrastructure for integrated treatment programs
the eight essential qualities for an effective treatment program
choosing a target population
identifying specific services to implement
implementation of services in an existing treatment setting

Designing, Implementing, and Managing Treatment Services for Individuals with Co-Occurring Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders: Blueprints for Action is more than an instructional text for students; it is an essential resource for any substance abuse and mental health professional considering implementing a co-occurring treatment program.
