Addicted and mentally ill: stories of courage, hope, and empowerment
Addicted and Mentally Ill: Stories of Courage, Hope, and Empowerment presents vignettes about people with mental illness and addiction whose situations are representative of what goes on in a dual-diagnosis in-patient setting. This nonclinical, easy-to-read resource addresses the misunderstandings and prejudices surrounding dual-diagnosis, the necessity for appropriate treatment and follow-up care, medications, twelve-step principles and practices, and the involvement of family in treatment. The book provides unique insight on being dually diagnosed and how co-occurring mental illness and addiction can be treated with the minimum amount of blame, shame, or poor decision-making. Addictions Professional says, "Professionals may want to recommend this book to persons with a dual diagnosis and/or their loved ones, and those professionals not familiar with treating this population may want to read it themselves."
