This volume discusses the latest innovative thinking on working with clients who have both mental health diagnoses and substance use disorders. Part 1 focuses on diagnosis and includes chapters on the complexity associated with making a specific diagnosis when individuals have both mental illness and substance use disorder, treatment associated with dual diagnoses, issues of cultural competency, the evolution of addiction terminology, comprehensive assessment of substance abuse and addiction risk in adolescence, the relationship between attachment and addiction, addiction and self-injury, comorbid trauma and substance abuse disorders, substance abuse among older adults, and addictions and stigmas. Part 2 addresses practice issues and incudes chapters on the role of emergency services in the community, best practices for addressing substance use during and after major crises and disasters, addiction, spirituality, and resilience, a framework for addressing spirituality in substance abuse treatment, practice, advocacy, and outreach, and preventing substance abuse and addiction. The final part includes chapters on professional training, including steps for creating programs for professional development and academic programs, developing an SBIRT curriculum in advanced practice, teaching the importance of developing the therapeutic relationship, and teaching students the importance of community engagement and awareness in the areas of mental health and addiction.
