Topic: Dual Diagnosis (Mental Health and Addiction)

Speaker: Lauren Zehnle, MA, LPC, RASAC II, St. Director of St. Louis Addiction Counseling LLC

Dual diagnosis, most notably the co-occurrence of a psychiatric disorder and substance abuse disorder, is a common condition that can result in extreme suffering. Much evidence suggests that when both disorders are treated, the patient’s prognosis is significantly better. The mental health field has made huge strides over the last few decades in treating dual diagnosis and training clinicians to accurately screen and treat patients with co-morbidity. Please join us in a discussion of dual diagnosis and discover how comprehensive treatment may ensure greater success in the road to recovery.
