   CSL 3560 - Co-Occurring Disorders

1.0 Credits
People with mental illness are likely to have comorbid substance use disorders (SUDs) and vice versa. Co-occurring disorders (CODs) are burdensome conditions that have significant physical, emotional, functional, social, and economic consequences for the people who live with these disorders. This class will address CODs and summarize prevalence and treatment rates, trends in programming, and negative events associated with CODs (e.g., increased hospitalization). Additionally, the complicated and bidirectional relationship between mental disorders and SUDs that can make diagnosing and treating these conditions difficult will be reviewed. This class will include an introduction to the DSM-5 diagnostic criteria for the mental disorders most often seen with substance use and behavioral addiction disorders, along with a discussion of the changes to substance use diagnosis with DSM-5. The essential values, attitudes, and competencies of working with this population are discussed. This class also seeks to enhance the ability of students to offer treatment services in a manner that respects gender, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, cultural, familial, systemic and socioeconomic diversity.
