Co-Occurring Disorders: Integrated Assessment and Treatment of Substance Use and Mental Disorders



Despite an increased awareness of co-occurring disorders, most current treatment paradigms still focus on one problem or the other, leaving much unassessed, unaddressed, or ignored. Until now - a revolutionary new book from Dr. Charles Atkins that can break the cycles of relapse for those intertwined with substance use and mental illness.

Co-Occurring Disorders is a guide to practical assessment and effective treatment approaches for working with any number of co-occurring disorders. This step-by-step approach, demonstrated through diverse case studies, gives you the tools you need to improve and track your clinical outcomes.

This is a must-have resource for both the rubber-meets-the-road clinician, who wants effective strategies and a clear direction for treatment and recovery, and the administrator who creates interventions at the system level with attention to regulatory and reimbursement demands. Also included is a comprehensive state-by-state Guide to Mental Health and Substance Abuse Agencies and Prescription Monitoring Programs.

Endorsements

A comprehensive, user-friendly compilation of assessment and intervention strategies to be used for clients. It includes a number of worksheets for both clinicians and clients, and is a valuable tool for treatment decision-making." 

-- Donald Meichenbaum, PhD, noted author and speaker, a CBT founder, and voted one of the 10 most influential psychotherapists of the twentith century

This book is wonderful. I plan to adopt it as a textbook for my MSW Co-Occurring Disorder Program." 

-- Jaak Rakfeldt, Ph.D., Co-Occurring Disorder Cohort Program, MSW Coordinator, Southern Connecticut State Unviersity Professor

So much valuable information in a user friendly manner, clinicians as well as others will find this book useful in their practice. This resource is a powerful tool and I am especially proud of the way he connects issues related to gender and trauma." 

-- Colette Anderson, LCSW, CEO The Connecticut Women's Consortium

A clear, concise and straightforward and up to date text on co-occurring disorders has been glaringly lacking in the Behavioral Health Field. Co-Occurring Disorders: The Integrated Assessment and Treatment of Substance Use and Mental Disorders offers students and clinicians at all levels a comprehensive view of the challenges of treating those with a co-occurring mental health and substance use disorder. Written in plain language, Atkins provides a clinical road map beginning with an outline of key issues and ending with treatment planning. Atkins also does what most don’t and that is to stress the importance of peer support, natural supports and self-help. Co-Occurring Disorders: The Integrated Assessment and Treatment of Substance Use and Mental Disorders is an important addition to any educator’s and clinician’s bookshelf." 

--Eileen M. Russo, MA, LADC, Assistant Professor, Drug and Alcohol Recovery Counselor Program, Gateway Community College, New Haven, CT

As a person that has lived with bipolar disorder for many years and has proudly disclosed my personal journey of recovery, I know there are many people who would greatly benefit from the treatments suggested in this powerful book-co-occurring services are rarely done in such a comprehensive way. 

-- Dr. Karen A. KangasDirector of Operations, Advocacy Unlimited, Inc.
