Family Support Through the Recovery Process

Following treatment recommendations may be difficult for individuals experiencing dual/co-occurring disorders for a variety of reasons including:

· feelings of demoralization

· lack of motivation

· difficulty keeping track of appointments

· skeptical about the value of certain services

· they may minimize or deny one or both disorders


Your loved one may need support maintaining their treatment plan. You can support the treatment process in a number of ways, including:

· helping your loved one remember to take all prescribed medications for one or both disorders

· listening to any concerns about medications -- such as their purpose, benefits, and side effects -- and helping address those concerns

· making sure appointments with treatment providers are kept

· working with the treatment team to stay informed and help address any issues related to medication


Integrated treatment for co-occurring disorders often includes a combination of different services that are tailored to each person's needs. A comprehensive treatment plan may include:


· Pharmacological Treatment

· Individual, Group,and Family Therapy

· Vocational rehabilitation

· Case Management
