Description

Co-Occurring Disorders: Understanding Self-Medication and Complex Recovery” will be presented on Tuesday May 30, 2017, from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm, by Jeremy Suttles, MSE, LMSW; Clinical Social Worker, University of Michigan Hospital – Adult Inpatient Psychiatry. Co-Occurring Disorders, also known as Dual Diagnosis, is the term used to describe having both a substance use disorder and a mental health or medical illness; the symptoms of one influence the symptoms and treatment of the other.  Diagnosing and treating these disorders can be challenging, as the two are often so entwined that they are difficult to separate.  People with dual diagnosis issues often use substances to self-medicate to treat the symptoms of their medical or mental health issues, but the consequences of that use include poorer mental and physical health.  The cycle of dual diagnosis can be a challenge for both providers and patients during recovery.  This presentation will provide an overview of what co-occurring disorders are, how they are identified, their prevalence, and the most effective methods of treatment.  Emphasis will be placed on a comprehensive model of recovery that provides for emotional and physical health recovery as well as ongoing sobriety.

COSTS:  Admission is FREE and open to all.  No registration is required.  A certificate to document attendance can be provided on request. FREE CE is provided for addiction professionals.
