Divided into two parts, this volume provides current information relevant to both the clinician and the investigator interested in the empirical and theoretical dimensions of comorbidity. The first section, comprising four chapters, is devoted to basic issues of epidemiology, genetics, diagnosis, and treatment. It provides the scientific and methodological underpinnings for ongoing developments in the clinical care of patients with dual diagnosis. The second section, containing 12 chapters, focuses on specific comorbid disorders in the large, heterogeneous population of patients with comorbid substance-use and psychiatric or medical disorders. Each of the chapters in this section discusses in detail the diagnostic process relevant to the specific comorbid disorders addressed in that chapter, as well as reviewing options for the treatment of dual diagnosis.
