Helping Clients with Co-Occurring Diagnoses Continue Their Success in Recovery

The DSM 5 lists 10 separate classes of drugs. When these substances impinge on the daily life of a person, a substance use disorder can be given. We often encourage our clients to be admitted for intensive treatment or participate in outpatient treatment, which can vary in levels of intensity. What happens after graduation from a program? How does the client stay in recovery? What tools can be given to the client and the family for continued success with staying drug free, especially when the client has a co-occurring diagnosis. This course will aid the participant in assisting their clients with developing more tools to stay successful in their recovery and manage their mental health diagnosis.
