People with dual diagnosis are at risk for further health problems and may take many medications. Medications are often prescribed and then changed repeatedly due to incomplete diagnostic information. Communication challenges can affect a person’s ability to report their effectiveness. This webinar will review considerations for the use of medication, including the role of the DSP in advocating for a person with co-occurring disorders during prescribing, planning, treatment, and recovery.
