Slipping Through the Cracks: Intervention Strategies For Clients with Co-Occurring Disorders:
As a result of the absence of integrated services clients with addictions and co-occurring disorders are vulnerable to slipping through the cracks. This involves going back and forth between the addictions, mental health, criminal justice and child welfare systems without recovering. This can also include periods of homelessness and medical hospitalizations. In this workshop you will learn, primary reasons clients slip through the cracks including: a lack of integrated services; triple challenges; inadequate service dose; misdiagnosis; hidden diagnosis; addiction to a drug subculture; lack of community; unresolved grief and trauma; low recovery capital. Emphasis will be placed upon 10 strategies to help clients with co-occurring disorders avoid slipping through the cracks and initiate recovery.
