Clinical Interventions

Individuals with mental illness and addiction comprise at least half of the patients in most mental health treatment systems. This combination results in increased risk for frequent psychiatric relapses, poor medication compliance, violence, suicide, legal problems, and high utilization of the emergency room or inpatient services. Traditional mental health and addiction treatments have not adequately addressed these co-occurring disorders due to clinical interventions, programs, and system flaws that have not addressed the individual's needs. Integrated treatment requires both an understanding of mental illness and addiction and the means to integrate and modify the traditional treatment approaches in both the mental health and addiction treatment fields. There is strong evidence to support the efficacy and effectiveness of integrated treatment in this population. All mental health clinicians should become experienced and skilled in the core psychotherapy approaches to treating substance use disorders, including motivational enhancement therapy, relapse prevention, and 12-step facilitation. In addition, integrated treatment includes integrating medications for both addiction and mental illness with the behavioral therapies and other psychosocial interventions.

Recent clinical studies have shown that between 30% and 60% of drug abusers have mental health diagnoses Depression, Schizophrenia, and Manic illness disorders. Drug Addiction is a typical of disorder involves the interaction of environmental factors and genetic factors to increase the susceptibility of an individual to addictive behaviour. SAMHA scientists are working on the pharmacological and neuropsychosocial models and approaches that involve preclinical studies and clinical findings, to explain the effects of mental health and physical disorders and outcomes in addicted persons. Researchers focus on pregnant women smokes cigarettes. Tobacco usage elevates therapeutic and behavioural therapies in smokers with concurrent psychiatric disorders. Scientists are developing interventions using pharmacological and behavioural treatments in alcohol and chemical dependence. The overall goal of the research is to participate and conduct high-quality multi-site clinical trials for drug abuse and addiction, for the development, and adoption of effective approaches in this field.
