About the Course:
Co-Occurring Medical and Psychiatric Conditions (TIP 45, Chapter 5): Detoxification and Substance Abuse explains how patients undergoing detoxification frequently present with medical and psychological conditions that can greatly affect their overall well-being and the process of detoxification. These may simply be pre-existing medical conditions not related to substance use or the direct outcome of substance abuse. In either case, the detoxification process can negatively affect the co-occurring disorder and vice versa. Furthermore, people who abuse substances often present with medical problems in the advanced stages or in medical crisis. This chapter also presents a cursory overview of special conditions, modifications in protocols, and the use of detoxification medications in patients with co-occurring disorders or conditions.
Course materials are from Chapter 5, found on pages 121 to 144 of pdf document (pages 134 to 157 if using Adobe toolbar page finder).
This course is based on the reading-based online, Co-Occurring Medical and Psychiatric Conditions (TIP 45, Chapter 5): Detoxification and Substance Abuse created by U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in 2006.
