Addictions and Mental Illness

Working with Co-occurring Disorders

Many people who struggle with mental illness also struggle with an addiction. Recovery from both of these issues is complicated because they affect each other and are intertwined. Helpers may often be at a loss for where to start – did the addiction cause the mental illness, did the mental illness cause the addiction, or is there something else leading to both? This workshop provides a framework for working systemically with both issues at the same time. Participants will explore the impact of both addiction and mental illness, be provided with an overview of the theoretical frameworks for working with both issues, and learn how to integrate strategies in a way that supports health and change.
