High-Risk Impaired Drivers: Substance Use Disorders, Psychiatric Diagnosis, and Challenges with Treatment
December 17, 2020 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
The DWI court population has unique characteristics and responsivity needs, including the high rate of underlying mental health disorders among repeat impaired drivers. When working with this high-risk, high-need population, treatment for both substance use and mental health disorders is critical. If DWI courts aren’t treating the whole person, the likelihood of long-term recovery and success begins to dwindle.
This free webinar will dive into the challenges of treating co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. It will address common disorders, barriers to achieving breakthroughs with high-risk/high-need clients, and how to overcome obstacles in treatment. There will also be time for Q&A with presenter Steve Hanson.
