Description

•Learn about co-occurring disorders also known as Dual Diagnosis
•Learn the stages of change and how these stages relate to co-occurring disorders
•Learn about the bio-psycho social model of health
There are quite a few mental health courses here but so little focus on co-occurring disorders and how to help someone (or yourself) who is struggling. Most people know about mental health disorders and substance use disorders but unless you treat both at the same time, the likelihood of a long term recovery is very low.
In order to really understand co-occurring disorders and how to treat them you must also understand the stages of change and the bio-psycho social model of health.
The question is, where do I start?
Start with this course! This course will give a basic understanding so you can move forward with the correct treatment plan for yourself or your client.
This course will start by digging into what a substance use disorder is, what a mental health disorder is (and don’t worry about the labels, they aren’t necessary just here to describe the content) and why it’s important to treat both at the same time.
Next, we will talk about the stages of change. The stages of change are:
•Pre-contemplation
•Contemplation
•Determination
•Action
•Relapse
•Maintenance
Understanding the changes of change will help you be able to meet yourself or your client where they are.
We will also cover the bio-psychosocial model of health which is the meat and bones of the Sobriety Success Method.
The bio-psychosocial model of health focuses on:
•The physical health
•Psychological health
•Social impacts
We will also talk about how the Sobriety Success Method is ideal for those struggling with co-occurring disorders.
In addition, we will also talk about how trauma changes the brain as well abstinence versus harm reduction.
This course will also include extra resources, articles, blog posts, podcast links, assignments and quizzes.
Upon completing the final lecture, you will receive a certificate of completion.
Hope to see you on the inside!
