Psychiatric Comorbidities: Diagnosis and Treatment of Comorbid Psychiatric Disorders and Opioid Use Disorders - Revised
Description
Substance use disorders and psychiatric illnesses frequently co-occur and it is often difficult to differentiate independent from secondary disorders in patients. This results in more challenging treatment planning for patients with comorbid disorders, and poorer prognosis. Treatment outcomes in these patients are often worse, including higher relapse rates, shorter time to relapse of substance use, and more hospitalizations.

This module provides clinicians with tools to screen and diagnosis patients with psychiatric illnesses and discusses how to treat common psychiatric comorbidities in patients with co-occurring substance use disorders. Covered topics include: the epidemiology of co-occurring psychiatric illness and substance use disorders, comorbidity theories, and clinical relevance, including diagnostic and treatment implications. The module utilizes three case vignettes to highlight specific diagnostic and treatment challenges, and provides up-to-date treatment recommendations.
