 Dual Diagnosis, Mental ill. & Subst.disord.

Dear Colleagues,

    Dual diagnosis of mental illness and substance disorders are
seriously neglected in many service delivery centers across the country
and the world.  Our treatment systems have evolved to provide services
for persons who have singular, discrete disorders.  As a result,
persons who have dual disorders are frequently rejected from both the
mental health and the substance abuse systems.  Many persons who have
dual disorders that include severe mental illness and substance
disorders are among the homeless.  There is much work to be done in
this field.  A body of literature is developing.  Academic programs
in psychology, psychiatry, nursing, social work, and counseling do
not instruct students about the issues inherent in dual disorders.
Treatment programs and services are limited.  It is important that
there be advocacy for persons who have dual disorders.  In many places
this is a problem that is not addressed at all.
    New models of treatment and intervention are necessary.  Our
treatment systems and programs need to be revised in order to become
comprehensive.  Training is the present method of education to correct
systems and to teach providers new and relevant skills.  This often
leads to the development of comprehensive services and the inclusion
of consumers who have dual disorders.

I am compelled to ask, Tracy, what sort of treatment you might support for
the "typical" dual diagnosis client:  a drug and/or {*filter*} abusing human
being who suffers the mental ravages of his/her drug of choice and cannot
function or live normally until he/she gives up said drug of choice?  This
is not a mean-spirited question, I assure you.  My Ph.D. is in Clinical
Psychology and my training included a year with this "target pop," as they
are cheerfully labeled by auditors.  Thanks for your thoughtful reply.

Sorry for the goofup.  I didn't realize what my new server had done
until today.  My FYI was a copy of a posted article which was to be sent
to one of our faculty.  I'm breaking in a new server, and apparently,
even though the newsgroup was not in the "mail to" section, it got mailed
there too.  The original post was not from me.  Perhaps the person who
posted the original will repost.  In the meantime, I will scrounge and
see if perhaps I can find the person's post and the two of you can carry
out this discussion and get something out of it -- I'm a computer geek,
not a social worker. :)
