Co-Occurring Disorders

An Overview of Prevalence, Assessment, Client Engagement and Treatment Interventions

Individuals with a behavioral health diagnosis have varying lifetime prevalence rates for developing a substance use disorder. Unfortunately, individuals with co-occurring disorders face numerous challenges, such as an increase in the severity of symptoms, lower treatment adherence rates, higher dropout rates, an increased risk of suicide, and a greater chance of relapse. To help providers better understand this population, this workshop will provide education on the prevalence of co-occurring disorders, assessment tools, engagement strategies with specialized populations, and treatment interventions.

Treatment Considerations for LGBTQ+ People with Substance Use Disorder

Addiction Technology Transfer Center

The LGBTQ community is at an increased risk of Substance Use. Unfortunately, members of this community often face unique challenges when seeking help for substance use. Stigma, shame, and a lack of family support can all make it difficult for LGBTQ individuals to access the resources they need to overcome substance use disorders.

As a service provider, it is important to approach these issues with sensitivity and compassion. Ethical considerations must be considered when providing services to LBGTQ individuals, and it is critical to create an organization that is welcoming and accepting.

Pride Month June 1, 2024

Pride Month is celebrated every June to honor the LGBTQ+ community and to promote inclusion, equality, and visibility for all sexual orientations and gender identities. Pride Month has its roots in the Stonewall Riots of 1969 when members of the LGBTQ+ community in New York City stood up against discrimination and violence. Since then, Pride Month has evolved into a global celebration of love, acceptance, and self-expression.

As we celebrate Pride Month, it's important to remember that the fight for equality and acceptance is ongoing. Additionally, it's crucial to address the issue of substance use within the LGBTQ+ community. Members of this community may face unique challenges that contribute to higher rates of substance abuse, and it's important to provide support and resources to address this issue.

Pride Month is a time to celebrate love, diversity, and inclusivity. It reminds us that we all deserve respect, acceptance, and the freedom to be our true selves. Let's continue to stand together in solidarity and support of the LGBTQ+ community not just during Pride Month but every day.
