Webinar Registration by October 23, 2017: Members $55; Nonmembers $85 - 1.5 CEUs
This webinar is 2 - 3:30 ET (Eastern Time).
A dual diagnosis occurs when an individual is affected by both chemical dependency and an emotional or psychiatric illness. Individuals who present with coexisting disorders often require specialized services. Current research indicates the best outcomes occur, when both disorders are treated simultaneously. However, social services on the whole are not well prepared to deal with people who have both disorders. Quite often only one of the two problems is identified. This workshop will provide an overview of dual diagnosis and addresses the challenges commonly associated with this population. In addition, participants will be exposed to evidenced-based treatment strategies for dual diagnosed services.
