Substance Use and Mental Disorders: One, the Other, or Both?

January 27, 2015 @ 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Free

“Substance Use and Mental Disorders: One, the Other, or Both?” will be presented on Tuesday January 27, 2015; 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Dr. Stephen Strobbe, PhD, RN. Clinical Associate Professor, University of Michigan School of Nursing and University of Michigan Department of Psychiatry. Substance use and mental health disorders often travel together.  This program will explore historical and clinical aspects – including assessment, differential diagnosis, treatment, and recovery – of concurrent mental health and substance use disorders, also referred to as co-occurring disorders, co-morbid conditions, or dual diagnosis. This program is part of the Dawn Farm Education Series, a FREE, annual education series developed to provide accurate, helpful, hopeful, practical, current information about chemical dependency, recovery, family and related issues; and to dispel the myths, misinformation, secrecy, shame and stigma that prevent chemically dependent individuals and their families from getting help and getting well. The Education Series is designed to help people with alcoholism or other drug addictions to achieve, maintain and strengthen their recovery; assist family members and friends to understand and support recovery in people they care about as well as maintain their own health and well-being; aid professionals and students in various disciplines to work effectively with people with addictions and their families and support their recovery process; and contribute to a community culture supportive of recovery. All programs are free and open to anyone interested. Registration is not required. 1.5 hours of free C.E. approved by NAADAC (National Association for Addiction Professionals) and MCBAP (Michigan Certification Board for Addiction Professionals) is offered for each program. A certificate to document attendance is provided on request. The Education Series is organized by Dawn Farm, a non-profit community of programs providing a continuum of chemical dependency services.
