Question description

Go to to read "No Longer Alone" and then use the Library to find one article about the problems of diagnosing and treating clients who have a mental health and substance use problem that is similar to one mentioned in the "No Longer Alone" article. For example, research the connection between alcohol use and post-traumatic disorder.

  1. Explain the problems that Isabel, Maria, and Rosa experienced resulting from their mental health and substance use disorders. Why is their recovery more complicated than those of clients who are not dually diagnosed?
  2. Choose one of the women from the reading and further research the connection between her mental health and substance use diagnosis. Explain how the drug use exacerbates the mental health condition.
  3. What are some strategies for treating co-occurring clients who cannot stop using mental health prescription drugs during treatment?

After you have completed the reading, and without reviewing your classmates' responses, post your initial response to the following Discussion. Your post should be at least 400-450 words in length and should extend the discussion of the group supported by your course materials and/or other appropriate resources.

Super fast turn around time. Very impressed and will use Studypool again if I need a quick job. Communication was a bit tough but not unbearable.
