Course Description

This program has been approved for 6 Category A Continuing Education Credits by the National Association of Social Workers, NH Chapter. Auth. #3478.

Dual diagnosis, also called “co-occurring disorders,” is a term for the simultaneous experience of a mental illness and a substance use disorder. Either disorder—substance use or mental illness—can develop first. People experiencing a mental health condition may turn to alcohol or other drugs as a form of self-medication to improve the mental health symptoms they experience.  In this workshop you will explore the neuroscience of co-occurring disorders and treatment strategies, both therapeutic and pharmacological.
