Working with Psychosis, Course 5

Dual Diagnosis - Substance Misuse and Affective Disorder.

A 3-day course (2-day version also available).

Dual diagnosis is generally viewed as a difficult presentation to treat. The patient may be disillusioned with conventional medication, and resigned to 'self-medicating'. And it is a frequent presentation: those with affective disorders are more likely to misuse mood-altering substanes, and those who misuse mood-altering substances are more likely to have affective disorders.

To make matters worse, patients may 'fall between two stools', with substance misuse services reluctant to treat them until they have addressed their affective disorder, and mental health services reluctant to treat them until they have addressed their substance misuse.

In summary, this is a very important presentation, and one which mental health and related services need to have a robust and well-worked response to.
